    I'm attempting to change the recording folder to a folder on my NAS drive. I have already configured this successfully for my NextPVR IPTV service. I have changed the recording folder using the TV Server Configuration folder but the Settings in the MP2 client show both the NAS folder and the original default folder. I have also changed the account permissions for the MP2 Server service to allow access to the NAS.

    When I record a program ("SOS Titanic") the file is stored in C:\Users\Public\Recorded TV (see attached screenshot).

    Is what I'm attempting to to sensible and am I making any obvious mistakes?

    Probably the same issue as here where you had not applied the new folder to all you cards.

    Don't forget to restart the MP2 Server service after redefining the folders.

    Hi.
    Additional to the above, the "old" recordings folders stay visible as media source also you have defined new recording folder(s). But if you want you can remove the old ones in MP2 settings - media sources - configuration...

    You are correct. The mis-configured card folders was causing this issue. So now I'm happily recording two and more channels direct to NAS drive. Excellent!

    Thanks for your help.
