I just upgraded from Kodi 16 to 17.1 and Live TV isn't working anymore: I am getting an error message in Kodi saying the PVR addon cannot reach the DVB service. I didn't change any configuration; it still says 127.0.0.1 and port 8089 in the addon settings. I can reach 127.0.0.1:8089 using a web browser.

In kodi.log (see: https://pastebin.com/PMx9tWr5) I can see the DVBViewer addon is receiving a 404 (which I am also receiving when trying to manually open http://127.0.0.1:8089/api/status2.html in a browser):
Code:

I am using a clean userprofile (only changed the skin to Experience1080, nothing else).

You need to upgrade the recording service to 1.31 or above.

Yah, I just figured it myself that it might be due to an old version. Cost me another half hour to realize that recording service is not part of the main application (so downloading the latest DVBViewer wouldn't change anything) AND it's hidden somewhere at the very bottom of the download page of DVBViewer's customer area. Super confusing.

Thanks anyway. Should work now I hope.

you can stick to "old" recording service...it has been free...it will be kept free..

only the "new" media server needs an upgrade licens...

however...if you have a running/working system there is no need to upgrade to media server (ok i did at both of my servers)
