v18 -  Option to hide 'connection lost' message removed in Kodi 18. Why?

I have three Kodi boxes around the house and one 'server' with TVHeadend and Emby. The server is not running all time, because most of the time it would only consume energy without being used. The server shuts down itself if no longer used and is started only on demand via Wake-On-RTC for timer recordings and via WOL if one of the Kodi boxes is started.

The server needs a few seconds to be up and running, so at the time the Kodi PVR client initially tries to access the PVR backend, it is not yet running. As a result, a 'no connection' error message is displayed. A few seconds later the backend is available and the client successfully connects.

Before Kodi 18 there was an option in the PVR settings to disable the error message, and I used it to get rid of the message. In Kodi 18 this option has been removed and now I always get this annoying error message that irritates everybody else in the house ("Look fast, something is broken, there was an error message!!!")

Why has this option been removed? Is there another way now to hide this message?
Nobody knows why this option has been removed or how to hide this annoying error message?
