OSMC leia 18 on rp3 - no PVR IPTV simple client available

i’m trying to use IPTV on OSMC leia .
but i don’t see any link to PVR in Add-on menu .
is it gone in leia , like alot of add-ons and skins ? or i’m doing something wrong ?

do i need to install TVheadend server from Apps section in OSMC application ?

tried to install via shell , but got error :slight_smile:

osmc@osmc:~$ sudo apt-get install kodi-pvr-iptvsimple

it depends on : kodi-api-pvr
so , this may imply that i need to install TVHeadend from app menu ?

It’s already installed. All you have to do is go to the add-on browser, look under My add-ons and just enable it.

it is not installed .
nothing in add-ons !
i tried to search for it , but no use also

Go this way, in OSMC skin:

Settings -> Add-on Browser -> My Add-ons -> PVR Clients -> PVR IPTV Simple Client

and enable

And get error “Can’t download the Add-on”

The add-on is already installed and doesn’t need downloading.

The add-on can’t be activated because can’t install needed files.
Finally now is activated and working fine.
