Lost TvHeadEnd Settings after Septermber Update

Dear All,
yesterday I “excuted” the latest September-Update via auto-update within OSMC at my RbPi 3.

Afterwards all TvHeadEnd Settings was lost. No (ip-)Channels are there anymore. TvHeadEnd has been updated to 4.2.2 with the OSCM update.

What went wrong? How to fix the Problem?

I found the problem on my own:

Problem: I have changed the start parameters of my TvHeadEnd service to different directory start parameters

nano /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/tvheadend.service

ExecStart=/usr/bin/tvheadend -f -p /run/tvheadend.pid -C -u osmc -g video

ExecStart=/usr/bin/tvheadend -f -p /run/tvheadend.pid -C -c /home/osmc/.hts/tvheadend/ -u root -g root

With the update this was overridden. I just edited to the above settings and everything works fine again.



Thanks twischi

Was gutted after seeing all my channels spent ages setting up got lost after reboot.

Followed your steps now changes are saved.

Thanks again
