Hi,

When a first recording is already launched, if a second recording is started on another channel of a different mux, the second recording is stored in the default recording folder (i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\recordings) instead of the folder set in the TV-Server configuration (in my case, D:\Enregistrements TV).

It's exactly the same for timeshifting: when a recording is already launched, if you try to watch another channel (on a different mux), the timeshifting files are not stored in the folder set in the TV-Server configuration but in the default one f(i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\timeshiftbuffer instead of J:\Temp\Timeshifting in my case).

It's a big problem for people like me that have a small system disk/partition on the C: drive.

Attached are the logs generated when recording the TF1 channel and starting another recording on France 2 which is on a different mux.

Thanks,

Noon.

    Hi,
    You know you have to set it for all tuners in dropdown list?

    Regards

    Shame on me!
    As I have a very bad sight, I've verified several times that there wasn't any drop-down list for card selection and I've never seen it... I have only seen it after reading your reply!
    I'm so sorry for having disturbed you for nothing.
    How could I delete my thread? I would like to remove it asap, I feel so ashamed!

    Thank you very much.

    Noon.

    Hej
    Is there a way to save older recordings on a different hard desk or similar, than the one chosen for each tuner?
    I have some recordings I would like too move too a NAS, but I want to keep MP to handle these data.
