Hello,

I've noticed this a couple of times but last night i was able to get the logs for the first time.

Here is the scenario from last night (1/9/2011)

1. We were watching TV on a client PC in the bedroom - Channel 8-1 WTNH on the HDHR (9.30pm - 10.15pm)
2. We have a scheduled recording at 10pm on 8-1 WTNH (Castle)
3. We watched the first 15 minutes of Castle and then shutoff the client

This morning I have no recording for Castle. How do I go about debugging this? It was red in the guide last night so it was due to be recorded.

Thank you

M

    Hi madas

    I hope you are well! :)
    I'll get straight to the point: I don't see any evidence that TV Server even attempted to try and record Castle. There is just nothing in the logs to go on. :(
    Can you tell me: is there still a schedule listed in the "schedules" section of TV Server configuration now?

    Hey mm,

    Hope you had a nice Christmas/New Year.

    I've attached the schedules screenshot. It shows Castle as being in there.

    Hmmm, okay.

    I can see that there is an update request for schedule data at about 7pm:

    SD-TvDb: Update tvdb.com info for Castle
    I can only surmise that the "concrete" schedule for that particular episode somehow wasn't created. Nowhere in your logs do I see assignment of schedules to tuners which needs to happen so that recordings actually occur.

    At present I can't think of any way to trace what happened or to even catch this in the future.

    How regularly is this happening?

    Its starting to happen quite often.

    I also have another issue with a Monday night recording.

    "Mike & Molly" - 9.30pm to 10pm

    The guide shows it as this.

    For some reason MP consistently records from 9.45 to 10.15pm. It has done this 3 weeks in a row now. I've attached the guide information for last night from my database

    Let's take the Castle and Mike + Molly schedules as examples.

    How did you create the schedules and what kind of schedules are they?

    Perhaps you could use the import/export section in TV Server configuration to export your current schedules for me to examine in more detail (?).

    Export attached. Appreciate the help.

    Both were just created through the regular GUI. I believe both are schedules set to At this time on this channel weekly.
