TVHeadend HTSP Client: couldn't be loaded

  • Hello, I attempted to transfer my aarch64 box (LE 8.2.1) to a s905 box (LE 8.2.3.1). The only problem I've found it the TVHeadend PVR client is not loading.

    Seems to have to do with the architecture? Found this in the logs:

    wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS


    Not sure if it means anything. The log file is after a clean boot.


    Error message is:


    Add-on couldn't be loaded.

    Can't load shared library



    Log shows:

    ERROR: Failed to read 'zip://%2fstorage%2fdownloads%2fpvr.hts-master.zip/pvr.hts-master/addon.xml'

  • Binary add-ons compiled for aarch64 will not run on an arm build. You need to remove and reinstall pvr.hts.

  • Tried uninstalling and reinstalling yesterday.

    Just tried to reinstall and now kodi won't install anything from LibreELEC's repository! Tried deleting the pvr.hts from /addons/packages/ but still wouldn't install.

    Found raybuntu Odroid arm version and all is working.



    Now I need to figure out why kodi stopped allowing installs from LibreELEC's repository?
