I’m trying to find how to relocate my HD Homerun folder from Volume 1 to my shared folders so I can more easily manage my recordings. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Here's something I have put together, but waiting for someone to verify before I add to the workarounds
On Synology they lock down a lot. so we have to add the right permissions to get things started.
So first things first.. disable the DVR (via UI or app center) and ssh to the NAS and login as your admin user.
I'm going to assume that everything on your NAS is located on /volume1/ - adjust to volume[1-9] as needed.
Now we need to add the admin access control list (ACL) with
Code: Select all
sudo synoacltool -add /volume1/HDHomeRunDVR group:administrators:allow:rwxpdDaARWc--:fd—
This will now allow us to actually add it as a share
So back to the DSM web interface, log in, and
- open Control Panel
- open Shared Folder
- select 'Create'
- enter the name of the folder, e.g. HDHomeRunDVR
- uncheck 'Restrict Access to administrators only'
- uncheck 'Enable Recycle Bin'
- click 'Next', then click 'Apply'
Now you should have the share in filestation and be able to access it from other PCs in your network.
The final thing we need to do, is just quickly ensure that the http user still has access for the engine.
So back to ssh and enter
Code: Select all
sudo synoacltool -add /volume1/HDHomeRunDVR group:http:allow:rwxpdDaARWc--:fd--
All should be ok at this point - time to restart the DVR engine..
let me know if this works for you

you could always point Plex Server at either solution.. but if you need to get share to expose you can either create new share, add the permissions and move the recordpath.. OR... add the Recordpath to the shares...
I wanted to modify the default record path to a new location, rather than modify the existing record path.
1) stop engine via engine UI -or- DSM
2) modify record path via engine UI
3) copy contents of old location into new location via SSH, using a CP command (if needed)
4) update sharing permission on new record path via SSH (engine uses HTTP as login)
5) start engine via UI
Voila. I originally got "DVR failure", until i completed step 4.
