Hey guys,

is there a possibility to set another path for recordings so that they are shown in the "my recordings" section?

Waht I do: the TV-Server reocords locally, but if my HD is running out of space I move old recordings to a network share (including the xml of the show). I still want to see them in "My recordings" with all the xml infos and not in the "my videos" sections. So I need another recordings-path only for monitoring and not for recording, is this possible?

regards,
nicx...

    Create a Junction point is most probably the easiest way of doing this, one of the ways is to use something like Junction Link Magic.

    Use at own risk though, you might want to do a bit of research on this, just to make sure you get things right :)

    Same problem here. The wife is recording stuff like crazy, and I'm stuck with a disk full of cr...things I wouldn't have recorded.

    I would really love the option of being able to have a second (third, fourth, ...) path and would then probably offload some of the files during the night using robocopy or something similar to a network location. That would also mean that the database would need to handle the fact that the recording "d:\recorder\some_show\2009-05-20-blahblah.ts" (and its .xml file) is now on "\\mynas\recorder\some_show\2009-05-20-blahblah.ts". And while I'm not planning on adding a local disk to my setup, I guess it would also be nice if the second path could be "e:\recorder\..."

    one more vote for this - I think many people do "offload" their recordings to a network drive - so do I - and would like to keep the recordings inside MPO at the "usual place"...

    Well, I've found out what it was :) People's advice to run the tvservice as the normal user was correct, but it turns out that Windows won't run a service as a user with no password. It doesn't complain when you set the user in the service properties, but fails with a login error when it tries to start the service. Adding a password...

    So after a long search and a lot of experiments I did find out the culprit: I did disable events of the Common Information Model Object Manager. As soon as they are disabled TV server will always show "port 554 is already bound". Enabling/disabling events is done by this reg key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM]...

    I really wanted MP to work but I downloaded NextPVR and HDhomerun. HDhomerun picked up all my channels right away and I can watch them there. I don't have NextPVR working yet so I don't get any TV guide or able to record. But it's closer than I've been before. I don't understand why HDhomerun can pick up my channels and MP picks them...
