Lost all recordings with latest update

Post by dshookowsky » Thu May 02, 2019 8:54 pm

I just updated to the latest firmware and DVR software 20190417, unfortunately, none of my existing recordings is displaying in the Recorded tab.

Does anyone have any ideas on if/how this can be fixed? I'm using the HDHomerun app on Nvidia Shield TV and the backend/storage is on a synology NAS

Things are not quite as they seem. I hit my.hdhomerun.com and found that I was still running the older version of the DVR software. The SPK created a different folder HdHomerunDVR and that had a single recording that was going at the time that I upgraded.

I uninstalled the spk and tried to pull down the latest linux build from http://download.silicondust.com/hdhomer ... cord_linux,
but that fails as soon as I try to connect, creating a fault.log file (below)

Does anyone have a decent process for upgrading the software on a Synology NAS. In the past, I just backed up the old hdhomerun_record and did a wget on the URL, but the latest upgrade seems a bit flaky.

Download older build of HDHomerun record software

Does anyone know where I can get the previous build of the Hdhomerun_record software for linux?

The latest build fails spectacularly.

If I have the hdhomerun_record 20190417 build running, I get "Unable to play channel Communication error" when starting the Hdhomerun app on Nvidia Shield.

I can close the app and reopen it to at least watch live TV, but can't access any recordings

Another data point:

* Run the app with the backend running - I get unable to play channel communication error and no recordings
* After the backend has crashed if I run the app, I can view live tv but can't see recordings.
* I started to re-install the HDHomerun setup on Windows and while I was scanning channels, I tried to start the app and got "Unable to play channel" "System Busy", but I DO see recordings.

It's seems as soon as I start to play live TV (and the app always starts on live TV), the backend crashes.

Not sure if this was it, but after rescanning channels, I noticed that the storage ID in the new config file was different than the one in my old config. I updated it and restarted the service and seem to be back to being able to watch live TV and recordings.
