Hi Folks,

Are there any TV recording logs available in MP2, and if so could someone let me know where to look?

I have a weird recording problem that has been baffling me for the past few weeks that I'm hoping some logging could shed some light on.

Scheduled recording is working fine, and test scheduled recordings throughout the day work fine. I am having issues with recording one particular show overnight and I just cannot work out the issue.

The recording starts correctly but only records between 13 and 16 minutes, then stops. The guide data has the correct start and stop times, but it only seems to happen with this one show.

Any help would be much appreciated.

    "TV Server" can produce logs with various levels of detail. The level that has the most detail is DEBUG level, but this is not the default. So the first thing that you need to do is start "TV Server Config" and change the log level to DEBUG; see this page in the Wiki. Actually, I run my HTPC with the log level set to DEBUG all of the time, as you never know when you might need it.

    could someone let me know where to look?
    I use MP1, and for MP1 the "TV Server" logs reside in:

    C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal Tv Server\Log\

    This folder does not appear in Windows by default -- you need to change your folder settings so that Windows displays hidden folders. I have never used MP2, so I don't know how MP2 arranges its folders, but if you rummage around in the "Team MediaPortal" folder, you will probably be able to find the logs for "TV Server".

    As to your particular problem with the recording being terminated prematurely for one particular repeated recording, it is not a problem that I have seen reported before, so it is not obvious what might be causing it. Does the break in recording always occur at exactly the same clock time? Does it occur every day? Have you scheduled a system reboot for that time? Is "TV Server" grabbing the EPG at that time?

    Thanks. Your screenshot is showing the "TVGuide", the mentioned "MiniEPG" appears, if you press "enter" or "OK" during Live-TV. But you're right, the channel arrow and PIP button are not reachable by mouse, something insibile is overlapping them and preventing focus. I'll fix that. Anyway, I'll provide a new installer to you soon...

    Could be that a sudden powercut corrupts the database, or give all your pcs a new ipadres, or several more things that can break up a running mediaportal setup. Without the logs however, I don't have a clue on what exactly is wrong...

    Ok, the importer also remembers the queue of items that are still needed to be processed in settings file. If there is something stuck, it will try again on next server start and probably stuck again. But removing the media source also removes the associated queue. The server's TV plugin automatically creates the media sources for...
