MSNBC live not recording in Olympia/Thurston WA area

Post by averyfreeman » Thu Jul 04, 2019 1:21 pm

Hi!

I'm recording the news and I noticed MSNBC Live stopped recording today at 6AM PST even though there are new shows.

I figured it was a guide issue - software thinking that the 'show' has already been recorded and each subsequent hour is a 'rerun'.

I tried restarting my record service because once in a great while shows will be recording but not show up in the list of recordings (I'd say has happened 3 times in the past year). That did not help, so the guide was the next logical area I figured would be in question.

Also confirmed no new recordings from MSNBC looking at the server with $ ls -latr (sort by modified time)

Thank you :D

Still not recording. I know people are probably busy due to the holiday, so I apologize for being a pest, but it'd be nice if someone would look into this.

Could be circumvented by adding a basic 'record now' button. Is this something that could be included in the new UI?

I've brought that particular issue up before (please excuse my tone in this thread, I was frustrated):

Note: I'm trying the new live record feature in 20190620b on Windows 10 to try and circumvent this issue but it doesn't appear to be working because I can't find the recording anywhere

Nevermind - I found the recording, it didn't have to be started because it was already recording and I didn't realize it

It looks like the record server is recording the entire day - channel 661 MSNBC - for the last two days

Therefore, I think this is still a guide issue, but it's not as bad as I thought because at least it's still recording - just lumping everything together into a huge recording

Yesterday, July 4th, it started a recording at 4AM and ended at 1PM

Today, Jul 5th, it started one recording at 3AM and 11AM

All times are in PST, I'm using FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE for Record server and Windows 10 LTSC (1809) for view.

So I guess it's not really a problem since it's still recording. Just used to these being separated out into 1hr blocks.

No wonder I couldn't find the recording when I thought I had started the recording manually using the new UI - it was already recording, derp :P

Thank you

glad you got such worked out... you may have discovered such if you checked the guide at zap2it which does show it as such (guide should be same as what SD gets)

Thanks for the tip! I'll check out zap2it next time it happens...
