TvHeadend PVR Stops working in XBMCBuntu Frodo RC3

I Recently upgraded my media centre from XBMCBuntu Frodo RC2 to RC3 and it broke my pvr support.  I am using tvheadend for my PVR backend and it mysteriously stopped working after the update.

The XBMC team have moved the location of the PVR backends so it is now necessary on XBMCBunut and Ubuntu to install the specific PVR backend package for xbmc.

To install TVheadend manualy simply run the following at the terminal:

 sudo apt-get install xbmc-pvr-tvheadend-hts

and that's it, your PVR should be working again now.
NOTE: you may need to go into Settings - Add-ons - Disabled Add-ons and enable the tvheadend add-on.
