DVR Detection

Post by porterw24 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 6:52 am

I thought I had the DVR recordings set to the external drive. But, the HD QUATRO will not find the drive. I am using a Mac.

What's the device ID for your HDHomeRun?

Do you have the DVR installed on the Mac and have you edited the configuration file to change the record path? See viewtopic.php?f=126&t=65853 .

I tried the Terminal commands, they did not seem to work.

I have pre-ordered the Servio, so I suppose the DVR Recording will be a Mute point on the Mac itself after that. But, in there short term I would like to be able to record to the external drive.

Once the Servio is installed will HDHomeRun just know to find it for recordings?

Well, it is sort of the opposite, the servio will discover the tuners to obtain (and record) the content. But yes, auto-discovery *should* just work (of course there are all sorts of special cases that may require some adjustments (it is not at all surprising that some people have the most interesting home setups)).

What specifically didn't work with the Terminal commands? If it's easier, you can screenshot the window and email it to support at silicondust dot com and include a link to this thread, and we can help further.
