I have just uploaded kodi 16.1+dfsg1-1~bpo8+1 to jessie-backports which
is built with latest libcec thus fixes the crash due to the ABI breakage and
probably other bugs.

Please don't open bugs affecting package versions in jessie-backports,
use the backports mailing list for reporting such issues:

OTOH if you can reproduce an issue with packages from testing/unstable only,
please open a bug report in the BTS like this one.

Also note that the packages from deb-multimedia can interfere with packages
from Debian, thus systems having those installed are not supported here.

The kodi-pvr-mythtv package will be available from jessie-backports in
the next weeks.
