how do i downgrade from 9.02 to 8.25

  • Since i have problems with the tvheadend i want to downgrade from 9.02 to 8.25. When i go to manual updates - versions- there is no version to choose. I have made some backups on 8.25 but i think i have to downgrade to 8.25 first, right? Is it possible to downgrade with a 8.25 libreelec stick, without destoying all my settings? Or should i move first my backups to another drive?


    Thanks in advance.

    Approved the thread.
  • On the updates menu you will have to change update channel from 9 to 8 first to see old versions...

    What kind of problems are you having if i may ask?

    Today CVH compiled latest tvheadend server 4.3 if you want to try

  • my problem is that i use a qnap nas 251+ and the newest linux kernel -firmware- seems to be incompatible to tvheadend. I have tried it with the new kernel but there was terrible stuttering in audio and drop outs in picture. So i had to downgrade the nas to a firmware that was compatible with an older version of TVHEADEND, to be exact 4.2.6.


    Yesterday i performed the downgrade to 8.25 libreelec and i restored a backup. Now it seems to work, except the TV Series scraping with TVDB.

    this is a part of the log - internet access is given !!!!:
