RPI4: Add-on PVR IPTV Simple Client couldn't be enabled


I have just installed a fresh rpi4 image. In order to enable IPTV, I went to addons → pvr clients → PVR IPTV Simple Client.
There is no install button. Run/Unistall is disabled.
If I go one step up to the pvr clients addons, and than right click PVR IPTV Simple Client and than choose enable, than I can see a message in error log:

What should I do?



Please try this:

Thanks Tom.

Maybe it is a stupid question, but how to enable inputstream.adaptive in iptv simple client?

Settings need to be “expert”

I think it’s on the playback section of IPTV simple client settings.

I don’t know how, maybe after restart, but I pressed “enable” button on the addon itself (where you have “uninstall” button), and everything worked.

I am not sure, whether I have missed something or something has changed in the meantime.

Anyway, thanks for you help.
