Re: TVHeadend won't record onto attached SSD Drive.

I'm running TVHeadend on a raspi4 using Docker no sweat. Records to an external HDD too which is NTFS formatted. Whatever problem you're having here are with your setup. No one should be put off here with frights of 'incompatibilities' The image I use is linuxserver/tvheadend but you need to change...

Re: TVHeadend won't record onto attached SSD Drive.

Hi About the recording path, somebody mentioned linking it from the default . It is a good idea to do this anyway, so that in the future, if you change the disk, you can just re-create the link instead of having to alter the TVH/Libelec configuration. A new disk will likely mount itself under /medi...

Re: New Article: How to Watch and Record Live TV with a Raspberry Pi

My experience of trying to create a Raspberry Pi 4 PVR as a replacement for a Hitachi PVR has been nothing short of a nightmare. Much the same as you I have some Unix experience and thought I'd use this and save some money too by building my own PVR. I bought the tv hat dutifully and followed the in...

Have also logged a query on the LibreElec forum to see if anyone can help. One problem after another.......and all I wanted to do w...

Re: TVHeadend won't record onto attached SSD Drive.

I think I've resolved this and it did boil down to permissions in the end. First of all a big thanks to everyone that has helped, much appreciated! Roken, cob, diogen151, snowballEarth. So I read on the tvheadend forum that ALL directories need the right permissions not just the final target ef*** d...

No luck, I've run chmod 777 against the directory /media/pi/ef*** but it's still putting recordings in /media/pi/Storage/Recordings?

Any ideas?

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 TV Hat compatibility

Hello,

Am I missing something obvious here? I've just bought a Pi 4 and the tv hat won't fit because of the PoE pins on the right.

Can anyone help?

Re: No signal to Pi 3+ with TV aerial splitter but ok with aerial cable direct?

Surely the IN connector goes to the TV? Leaving one of the other connectors for the incoming aerial cable and the other for the Pi?

Or have I lost the plot here!?

Thanks for your patience.
