Do I need to renew my DVR subscription/activation?

Postby jim_a » Sat Dec 22, 2018 1:20 pm

I initially subscribed to the Kickstarter program and had the
DVR working on my NAS. Has this subscription expired?

Recently I decided to try the DVR again now that I have added two
Quatros (and an antenna) for broadcast TV. I also added a Shield
TV and a Flirc.

I downloaded the latest version of the recorder software and have
it running on my NAS.

Both the Shield TV (and the PC) can use both the Quatros and
a Prime with cable card. However, neither the Shield nor the
PCs see the recorder.

The NAS is an old Seagate central. I do plan to replace the
NAS with a newer Qnap.

I now have the everything working with the recorder installed on my Qnap TS-231 NAS.
I think the problem with the Seagate NAS was the share name which was “hdhomerun”
(all lower case) instead of HDHomeRun. The only way I know to add a share to the Seagate
is to add a user with the desired share name. However, the Seagate converts the
user/share names to all lower case. :(

Previously the Seagate worked with the "bad" share name.

I had to do a manual install on the Qnap because the installer indicated that SMBD was missing or
not running. :(

The seagate install should almost always need to be manual... no share is needed when you do it manually and you can call the directory anything you like.

For a qnap, i suggest using demonrik's package.
