    Setting up the TV Server to use UNC paths for timeshift, causes server preview (and client viewing) to fail. It shows an error " Preview failed: No disk space available". The UNC paths are to shares on the same PC (the server). Changing the settings to point to the same folder as a local path works fine.

    I've used UNC paths in the past, for my server settings, so I can use the non-rtsp mode & allow commercial skip to work on recordings when viewed at the clients.

    Attached are logs, attempting preview at the server, using both UNC & local paths.

    Just tried public SVN 23652 (Sept. 17), and problem is fixed. Thanks Morpheus.

    I can confirm this issue.

    It has been introduced by the free disk space check. it uses driver letters, this will fail for UNC. I'll fix this ;)

    I have the same problem on the actual 1.1.0 beta, that I downloaded today...
    Can you point me to any version, where this problem is fixed?

    Hi morpheus,
    I can't see MP code for the moment but, if I remember, mechanism used is something like Utils.GetFreeDiskSpace wich effectively use drive letter.
    Therefore, disk quota also use it, that's why I decided to use same.
    If it can help a bit...
    Cause I worked on free disk space and maybe I caused this problem, I could resolve this issue, in some times, if needed.
    Bye.

    already fixed. And I modified the GetFreeDisk space function so it handles UNC paths also.

    please be patient until the next public svn build is released.
