I broke my preferences and now web pvr doesn't work
For everyone else: --prefs-clear will be too drastic in most cases since it removes all your settings. If the OP had simply done as I instructed, s/he would have seen, in all likelihood, there was only a bogus "proxy" setting that could have been removed separately with --prefs-del. If that was the only setting, then of course there would be no difference between using --prefs-clear or --prefs-del.

This is also a reminder to be careful when typing commands, especially when using --prefs-add to update preferences. This particular problem was caused by using -pid=b09gvw7v. Note the single hyphen, which should be double. Otherwise the option is interpreted like -p "id=b09gvw7v", which set the "proxy" option in preferences to a bogus value. Of course, you shouldn't add --pid to your preferences at all.
