NVIDIA Shield Recording Locations

Post by StuckInUtah » Wed May 22, 2019 12:21 pm

I just installed HDHomeRun with DVR on an NVIDIA ShieldTV. I have two external drives connected with the idea that one
would hold HDHomeRun recordings and the other will be my movie collection.

How do I know or specify which external drive is being used for storing the recordings?

I think I saw instructions for Windows and Mac - but not for Android. Any hints?

The DVR on Android will always record to the largest drive.

It will read the internal + external. Not sure if it will read multiple external - will need to check.

(Android was the reason we added the ability to read from multiple paths)

Nick, you posted about additional search path functionality in the recordpath at one time here viewtopic.php?f=92&t=20619
If the user would mount multiple drives to the Shield this supposedly should work?
I tried this with my NAS drives with the engine located on a single drive NAS but never got it to work.

Any news on this possibility ? To read from 2 external HDD with a shield ? Even if you can only write to 1.
