Additional Storage Locations for Channels DVR Recordings


#63

Thanks the below worked for me on the WDPR4100... that gives me an extra 5TB of storage to move recordings I want to keep. … :smiley::smiley:

$url = "http://10.0.0.144:8089/dvr"

$payload = '{"ExtraPaths":"/mnt/USB/USB1_e2/TVREC/"}'

Invoke-RestMethod -Method Patch -Body $payload -uri $url

Can I view a movie that is stored on a different drive than where I am recording on Nvidia shield?

If you are talking about through the Channels interface, only if Channels recorded the movie and still has a reference to the recording in its database.

As has been stated many times, you cannot import arbitrary movies/recordings into Channels. It is a TV DVR and maintains its own database of recordings. It allows you to view live TV and recordings that it has made itself. Nothing else.
