Tasks List Empty

Post by jphhughes » Mon Dec 02, 2019 6:54 am

I noticed Sunday night that "The Rookie" was not recording. The TV guide on my phone had it listed as new episode. I check to make sure the record engine was running and it was. Then I check the Tasks list and it was completely empty.Prior to that the list contained at least 15 entries. So short of recreating the entire Tasks list entries is there a way to retrieve what was previously there?

I'M using HDHomerun prime with NAS and windows 10 app.

I would check the log of the dvr (times are utc, in the us this typically means primetime shows will be near the beginning of the log for the "next" day).

Everything gets based off the DeviceAuth of the tuner(s) so i would also check its system log for issues connecting upstream with SD as well as check its discover.json that it has a DeviceAuth and then try to manually retrieve tasks with it at api.hdhomerun.com/api/recording_rules?DeviceAuth=xxx where xxx is the DeviceAuth seen in the discover.json (note that for some the forum may have broke the url at the ? to another line it is all together, no space)
