Hi there, first week using channels, everything working ok. Trying to add a 5tb drive to my shield pro and dont know how to make it available as storage for the channels dvr. If someone can help a noob I would really appreciate it! Thank you! -John
Go to the settings on the shield and set up the drive as external removable storage.
In the DVR setup you will need to select /storage and then you will see a new entry list XXXX-XXXX with random letters. Click that, then create a NVIDIA_SHIELD directory, and a DVR directory underneath that, and hit save.
Ok, looks like the drive i got is bad. Its kills my entire shield when connected...i have a new one on the way thank you!
I have an external drive that I can bring to you to test.
Ok still not working permissions denied
Under enable dvr it says
It should say:
Got it working, had to create the directories one at a time, first tim i had entered it as one string and I guess the shield is fussy that way. Thanks for all the help!
Im trying the same by adding an external HD to a Xiaomi Mi Box and getting the "no write permission on dvr directory"
What should be in place after: /storage/6A3A5BCD3A5B94C3/
Healthy guess would be that's it different than "NVIDIA_SHIELD/DVR"
Thats exactly what it should be. Make sure you create the nvidia_shield directory first then add the dvr subdirectory. If you add the string all together it wont work
I tried that and wasn't having success.
It should still be "NVIDIA_SHIELD/DVR" even do i'm not using a shield? Its a Mi Box
The DVR server only works on the SHIELD. Other manufacturers do not allow writing to external storage. The shield does in a special nvidia_shield folder.
Darn. Ok, thanks for the clarification and quick reply.
