After changing password in webui login is not possible anymore
I changed the password of user in WebUi.
Accessing the TV recording services with Kodi using the new password is working.
Access to WebUI with new (and old) password is not working anymore.

Unfortunately, the synology packaging scheme is too much different from the standard Linux distributions, so we cannot give you more hints. There's also '--noacl' command argument to ignore all user/password checks to let to fix your issue. Note that this argument should not be used in the standard environment. Also, you may upload your 'accesscontrol' and 'passwd' directories (from the main config dir) for analysis, but this way, you uncover your credentals. It maybe better to ask on a forum where someone is using tvheadend on synology.

Thanks Jaroslav for the hint with the '--noacl' parameter.
I was able to login and change the password of the user.
I realized that one cannot use '$' within the password.
Using a '$' I received the strange behavior I described above.
This seems to be a bug probably only in the Synology package.
