Hi I've searched around but cannot find any fix for this that applies to me.
I'm using 4.1.2415 on LibreElec and just beginning to configure it.
All I have done is applied an admin password and it's already locked me out when I know the credentials are right.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but the problem still persists where it will not accept my credentials.
Can you please tell me how I can reset the config or the user/ password file?

Quick fix:

  • Login to your box via ssh.
  • Use
    ps -w or ps -ef
    to see how the process is started.
  • Copy the tvheadend line (inc args). Take note of the PID.
  • Kill the process
    kill <pid>
  • Paste the line back into the prompt, but append "--noacl" to the end.
  • You won't need to enter a user/pass now to log in. Double check your username & password.
  • Then go into the Configuration -> General -> Base & turn off "Use HTTP digest authentication".
  • Kill the process again, or reboot.

That should hopefully solve your problem.
