not sure what you mean exactly with manual method..
I would normally associate that with the manual linux install method which doesn't autostart..
But am going to assume you mean manual install of QPKG via app center
You don't need to uninstall the old engine unless you want to.
At a min, you can set the RecordStreamsMax on the old engine to 0 via the Manager UI.
If you want to just disable the engine on the QNAP I believe you just open the App Center, and use the drop down menu for the App and select Stop.
Am not sure if this retains after a restart though
I normally ssh to the NAS and exec the following
Code: Select all
qpkg_service disable HDHomeRunDVR
This will remove the engine and config but leave all logs and recordings alone. You would need to clean the RecordPath folder manually from filestation or ssh
