I have a Kodi 16.1 installation on a Ubuntu 16 VM and it has stopped working. It constantly crashes when it is scraping TV.

I have removed ~/.kodi and it works normally, but as soon as I added back my advancedsettings.xml and pointed it to my TV directory it crashed.

Oddly, it was able to scrape my Movie library just fine, only TV causes an issue.

Here is some of the log, it was 7MB log so I trimmed some stuff. Any ideas what could be the issue?

Update: Looks like the issue is related to TVDB.com API Changes and AddOn Update. Going to post this thread regardless and update when fix is live, but nothing is wrong with my installation it appears.

  • Good thing I totally wiped my VM and started fresh and re-installed the os and on and on... Finally found that thread, at least I know the issue is not on my end now. Aug 3 '19 at 12:14

So this issue has been fixed all you need to do is update the TVDB addon. You may have trouble if your Kodi instance keeps crashing while updating on start. My fix was the following:

  • Disable Networking
  • Start Kodi
  • Disable Auto-Update on Start
  • Close Kodi
  • Enable Networking
  • Update Add-On
  • Re-Enable Auto-Update on Start
