I had tvheadend working. I did an upgrade this morning and it now seems to be broken.
The tvheadend service won’t start. Here is the output from “systemctl status -l tvheadend.service” below. Am I correct in thinking that this is telling me that there has been a segmentation fault? It’s not telling me much else that might help to diagnose the root cause of the problem. Is anybody else seeing this and if so has anybody been able to fix it?

I can confirm this problem on RPi 2: armv7-tvheadend-app-osmc:armhf (3.9.0-5) segfaults with the old .hts/tvheadend directory. If I delete/move this, it starts again, but the created files are quite different and configuration of (DVB-C sundtek device/special userspace driver, in this case) muxes etc is not possible. Files on request.
Apart from helping to debug the problem: is the previous (3.9.0 ?) package version available somewhere, please? Seems not to be in the repository.
I experienced the problem after doing an upgrade to an existing OSMC installation, i.e. apt-get update followed by apt-get upgrade.
I followed lvp’s directions thought and moved the old .hts/tvheadend directory. That eliminated the segmentation fault and the service started successfully, but tvheadend doesn’t work, exactly as described by lvp.
Even with a fully fresh reistal of the RC PI2 version (and all updates), tvheadend is not working with my Sundtek DVB-C stick. Service scan does work with dvb5-scan. But within the tvheadend interface, channel list from /usr/share/tvheadend/data/dvb-scan/dvb-c/ is not selectable anywhere (/usr/share/tvheadend/data/dvb-scan is set as “DVB scan files path” in Configuration.)
The “TV adapters” section looks strange, too (it’s only one stick).
