looks correct to me
can you enable debug and get the log?
to enable - in /var/services/web/HDHomeRunDVR/vars.php
change

Code: Select all

const DVRUI_DEBUG   = false;
to

Code: Select all

const DVRUI_DEBUG   = true;
Now open your browser again to create the log file in /tmp/php-hdhomerundvr-ui.log
Open that file - and right down the bottom should be why you got the error. feel free to PM me the file

That was it! The php path did not include /volume1/@appstore/HDHomeRunDVR/etc, I added it and now working great.

Thank you for your help!

Is there a new version of the record engine available? I am getting a red x on their portal but it gives no info and only takes you to a mostly blank page on update instructions (which are blank)
I did not see an update in the google drive so wondering if SD is having web issues?

Thanks.

There was a release of a new engine on Feb-10
Since v1.0 the SPK no longer needs a new version on the google drive/ one drive/ dropbox when SD releases new engine - simply stop it and start it from the app center and it should pull down the latest version

Did not realize that it had become so easy to update. Thank you.

DSM 7
I am new at HDHomeRun and just got the device. Now I wanted to install the package on my already migrated DSM 7, but I am getting for both spk files "Invalid file format".

PS: Do the packages need to be adopted to the new security policy that services no long can run as root?

See viewtopic.php?p=370051#p370051
In short... no idea!
File format indicates a possible SPK package change or issue with your downloads.

Curious - did you guys upgrade the DSM with already installed SPK?
just wondering if the SPK format has changed, but once loaded on the system everything does work.
(thinking where I have to spend the ergs once DSM7 goes live)

I already had the SPK loaded and haven't tried to load a newer one.

I haven't installed it on my main diskstation yet. I have DSM 7 running on an auxiliary station if you want me to test an installation. I can at least let you know if it installs completely. Just let me know

I tried a new installation on DSM7. I did not had it installed before.
From the others I assume they had installed it before the upgrade already.
