Found this in my files that may work -
If this does not work for you look here viewtopic.php?f=125&t=36040#p217147by d21mike » Tue Jan 19, 2016 8:48 pm
I decided to play with this today and this appears to work. May work on other NAS Setups with minor changes.
IMPORTANT: I am not that experienced with this so you should do your own testing. Most of this I found with Google search.
I have a WDMyCloud single drive with firmware v04.04.01-112
1. Create a file with the HDHomeRun Start Command as the only line. I call mine start_hdhomerun.
@reboot root /shares/HDHomeRun/hdhomerun_record start --conf /shares/HDHomeRun/hdhomerun.conf
@reboot = tells cron to run this command after a reboot.
2. Place this file in the "/etc/cron.d" directory
3. Set execute attribute - assuming you called it start_hdhomerun
chmod 755 start_hdhomerun
If this is a good solution then maybe SD could make it part of the NAS Install step since maybe hard for Windows Users to put the file in this location. I am on a MAC so really easy for me to use SSH. On Windows you may want to install PUTTY if you want to play with this.
