This seems like a discovery problem. If the RECORD engine doesn't show up on my.hdhomerun.com, by default the PVR won't be able to find it either. There is an option to switch to the legacy network broadcast discovery -- go to the addon settings, general, "Use network broadcast for device discovery". This is an option a lot of people actually need to set for various reasons. What it does is switch back to the old "libhdhomerun" library, which sends a request out on your local network to find everything instead of pinging my.hdhomerun.com.danielwlewis wrote: ↑Sat Sep 01, 2018 3:36 pm Having trouble getting the record engine to work with this PVR client:
- I downloaded and installed the PVR add-on and am able to view live TV from my HDHomeRun Quatro - including the demo Premium channels.
- Purchased the DVR license from SiliconDust and associated it with my HDHomeRun Quatro.
- Did a "manual" install of the SiliconDust record engine on my NAS (NAS4Free, now known as "XigmaNAS").
- Issued the command "hdhomerun_record start" to start the record engine. There were no error or warning messages in the log file it created, and the System Status shown on the HDHomeRun RECORD webpage correctly lists the Record Path, Search Path, IP address and Free Space. HOWEVR: The "Storage ID" field is blank and the DVR does NOT appear on http://my.hdhomerun.com. (The Quatro does.)
- Tried to record from Live TV. The KODI (Actually LibreElec) interface shows the red dot in the guide, indicating that it is recording, but no recordings appear in the NAS recording directory and no recording is listed in KODI.
- No new entries were created in the log file of the record engine other than the entries created when the engine was started.
Having the red dot in the EPG is a little misleading on a number of levels. We currently can't tell what the RECORD engine is actually doing, so what's happening here is that I'm asking the SiliconDust servers for what *might* be recorded based on your rules and telling Kodi "yeah sure, that will be recorded. whatever man.". Since the RECORD engine isn't involved with that, it looks like you are cool with your authorizations and subscription, it's just not able to find your RECORD engine quite yet.
I think changing that setting will fix you right up, well, as 'right' as can be expected. Recordings are, and are likely to remain, a bit "wonky" in nature. Sadly we need a little more support from the backend or RECORD engine to un-wonky those in Kodi.
