Help and support for HDHomeRun DVR and HDHomeRun software for Windows 10, Mac, Android, XBox, etc.
I searched but couldn't find anything on this--surprising. How do I watch an in-progress recording? My record engine is recording properly, but my apps (have tried on W10 and Android) don't show any recordings in the Recorded section until the recording completes. They just show a "Your HDHomeRun DVR is ready to record" message.

For me I blame the issue on multiple engines, but that may not be the op's problem, as things don't show up properly at top in all if recorded by some of my engines but they do show up when one navigates to the show in shows (last I checked only shows showed up in shows and a few specials weren't listed anywhere as they usually would be in all but sometimes is not there, I'd personally prefer everything be a show with all being chronological and shows being alphabetical but I know others don't like movies or sports showing up there)
I only have one record engine, but what you said resonates with me a bit. I was having issues with the DVR not being detected by the apps or on my.hdhomerun.com. I'm not sure what the cause was, but stopping the DVR service, removing the StorageID from my .conf, and then restarting the DVR service resolved that--the DVR was then detected by apps and my.hdhomerun.com. The issue with recordings not showing up in the Recorded section, however was happening after I did the "conf refresh" maneuver. I wonder if the issues you see with multiple engines are similar/related to my situation are somehow my single StorageID became "bad."signcarver wrote: ↑Wed Feb 03, 2021 8:53 am For me I blame the issue on multiple engines, but that may not be the op's problem, as things don't show up properly at top in all if recorded by some of my engines but they do show up when one navigates to the show in shows (last I checked only shows showed up in shows and a few specials weren't listed anywhere as they usually would be in all but sometimes is not there, I'd personally prefer everything be a show with all being chronological and shows being alphabetical but I know others don't like movies or sports showing up there)
All that said...now my recordings are showing up moments after they start, as @nickk noted above. I'm not sure what the problem was last night, and I didn't do anything to fix it (didn't even bounce the hdhomerun_record service). So, as of now, this seems like a temporary blip. I'll keep an eye on it, but first I'll take a 15-minute timeout from the internet for wasting everyone's time with this.
FWIW, I'm running the record engine on a headless Ubuntu server VM.
Shows almost never pop up automatically for me. I need to go to another tab like discover or live tv and back to recorded for them to be visible. The same goes for deleted recordings. If I delete the last recording of a show, the tile for the series remains in the menu and it will crash if I select that series with no recordings in it.
Similar issue for me. I have a one record engine (Win 10) system with an attached USB3 4TB Raid 1 storage (to protect my precious mind candy). I assumed that the delay in seeing recorded shows (and the delay in removing the last recorded show) was a read/write buffering issue with the raid/windows file system collaboration. It's been this way for a long while. I just move between tabs to clean up the library and check for a new recording. I figured that it would go away if I moved to a single drive in the windows 10 tower, but I've not experimented with that.
Seems like there's an issue somewhere with recordings displaying in the app. While I was having the issue last night, no amount of tab switching or app restarting worked. As noted, this morning things are working as expected with no changes made.
In my case, the DVR engine is recording locally to the VM's internal storage. Ubuntu is running on ESXi, and hdhomerun_record is recording to the Ubuntu VM's storage.
I now think my issue is more that my clients can't see the recordings at all, not specifically related to in-progress recordings. I just checked and my clients see nothing--just the "Your HDHomeRun DVR is ready to record" messages. But in the recording location on the VM, I see a bunch of recorded shows. I'm not an expert at troubleshooting this, but happy to send any details you need.
Here's my hdhomerun.conf:
The "[username]" above is the real username, of course, in the actual .conf file
Code: Select all
RecordPath=/home/[username]/HDHomeRun StorageID=3A4259D0-[REDACTED in case this is sensitive]
EDIT: I plan to upgrade to the new firmware and DVR as soon as I can, but for now I'm still on the Sep 2020 release
