DVR not working after moving library


#1

I just cloned my DVR library from one external HD to another external HD. Afterwards, I cannot get the backend to work. I still have the channels-dvr folder on my computer. I have tried to uninstall the channels and reinstall but it won’t work. Please help.


#2

OK. I have the DVR installed again but it doesn’t see my recordings now. Please advise.


#3

What kind of computer?

Visit http://127.0.0.1:8089/restore to restore your old settings and recordings.


#4

That fixed it. Thanks!

Similar problem -
Problems started after I moved dvr server to a different iMac.
Restored from the last backup before problems with new server.
Server now seems ro have expected recordings and passes.
I can initiate a new recording from the browser function.
The ATV app shows inconsistent info: the recordings and passes seem right, but DVR page shows Storage 0 GB of ) available. ATV app record button does not seem to communicate with the server… When button is pressed, the server does not start recording. The log has error messages -

Are you sure you uninstalled the DVR from the old mac, by running the installer again and selecting the uninstall option?

Can you post the output from http://127.0.0.1:8089/system/network


#7

That was the problem. A dvr server running on both macs on the same lan. As soon as I uninstalled the old one everything went back to normal.
Thanks for the quick response and diagnosis!!
