Are you anticipating adding multiple storage locations in Channels, as I foresee a severe future deficiency in Channels for initiating and playback of recordings.
Having the ability to playback recordings on Channels DVR from either ATV or iOS is fantastic, and both are functioning superbly.
My current dilemma…which will probably start affecting other users in the near future…is that I’ve already filled up an 8TB location for the DVR recordings.
As Channels doesn’t offer secondary/tertiary storage locations (as does SD and Plex) I have had to devise workarounds to view all Channels recordings (on 2 file locations) and subsequently initiate playback from same.
Truthfully, these workarounds can be setup to view/playback content in a somewhat acceptable environment, however I have encountered problems and the result is not entirely satisfactory, for various reasons.
Also, having to employ any workaround is not ideal. In testing of SDDVR and Plex DVR as alternatives, I was able to apply workarounds for the backend and recording setups, but abandoned both due to the dev teams non-visionary implementation which required necessity of onerous workarounds.
Currently, I’m having to employ workarounds for the front end viewing from Channels. This has additionally negated all the implemented benefits of Channels playback; namely comskip (arguably one of the standout features of Channels DVR).
Hopefully, a solution can be devised.
