smdb not found or not running unable to install

Post by flywheel617 »

Hello,

Trying to setup DVR services on HDHomeRun Flex 4K.

I have an emby server on my workstation,
I am able to SSH into it but I am getting the following error

smbd not found or not running

Unable to install
Image

Is there a shared folder that needs to be setup or am I missing something?

What are you trying to accomplish as image isn't loading.

Typically with a flex, you add a USB drive to it.

I'm also trying to figure out why you are bringing an Emby Server into the mix.

Assuming you are trying to install the DVR Engine on the device that the emby server is on, what type (and brand if a NAS) of device is that on (as you mentioned workstation, typically you would do that type of install to a NAS). Also note (unless something changed) that the NAS installer only installs to linux based machines and if you have a "NAS" based on (free)BSD you would have to do a manual install.

If it is a windows machine you just enable the DVR on that machine. If it is a linux box, for SD's NAS installer, you must create a share called HDHomeRun (case sensitive). In some cases that error is actually making sure your windows machine is also properly set up and discoverable on the network, occasionally it also pops up for when certain versions of SMB aren't supported between the devices.

I have emby because I am using the tuner in emby for live tv.

I actually realized i wasn't thinking and was able to link to my synology ds420+, I couldn't search for it to install, but i mandually installed the spk.

I just started playing around the with the tuner last night and am thoroughly impressed with the windows 10 app for tv guide, etc.

I do suggest demonrik's packages for synology, qnap, asustor, docker, etc. where appropriate but to see a device to install to from SD's nas installer, it must have a "DLNA" server (turned on) to be discoverable.
