Sounds like the addon can't find the RECORD engine. When that happens, you lose Recorded TV and the ability to time-shift Live TV since it falls back to using a tuner directly. You may also see some pauses before playback of Live TV if it thinks there is a RECORD engine out there but can't contact it.ctviggen wrote: ↑Fri Feb 28, 2020 5:28 am We had a power outage yesterday while Kodi and my HT computer were running. The link between Kodi and the storage location for the PVR seems to be broken now. That is, when I go to recorded TV in Kodi, there is no recorded TV, and when Koki records something, it appears to be "lost". That is, Kodi normally populates the program after a few minutes or so in the storage location. This does not occur, and also the fast forward or back no longer works. (You can pause live TV for a while, but you can't go back or forward.)
I installed the latest version of HD Homerun software. Did not help.
HD Homerun is storing on my Unraid NAS. I do not know if that is an issue or not.
Anyone have any ideas as to how I can debug this?
If you look in the Kodi log, you should see the discovery list from the addon:
Code: Select all

If there is no RECORD available, there's the trouble. Perhaps try rebooting the NAS to restart the service? There also should be a log file in the root of your HDHomeRun share, if you don't see one for today that is also an indication that RECORD isn't running.
How about the actual HDHomeRun app? If you run that (Windows/Android/etc), are you able to see your RECORD engine that way?
Any chance that an OS update may have been applied on the HT computer when power came back on, or perhaps a firewall setting was temporarily disabled and came back on? I recently found Windows 10 had changed my network from "Private" to "Public" for no reason, which alters the firewall rules on that OS. Wasn't able to re-install RECORD from HDHomeRun Setup since it couldn't find the NAS. Addon still worked, though.
