We've released a new version of Channels DVR Server. As a Channels fan using macOS Catalina, we wanted to make sure you knew of an extra step that you might need to take to ensure your Channels experience is not interrupted.
macOS Catalina has some new extra permission systems to ensure you have control over what your software can and can not do. One of these new permissions is allowing specific software to access your external storage.
You will need to manually grant Channels DVR Server access to your external storage. You will only need to do this once, but you will need to do it after the latest update.
Steps To Upgrade
If your Channels DVR Server has already updated to version 2019.10.29.0031 , you might already see this permission dialog:
Click OK and Channels DVR Server will continue as usual and you should not have to grant it permission ever again.
If your Channels DVR Server has not upgraded yet, follow these steps:
- Visit http://127.0.0.1:8089 on the computer that is running Channels DVR Server
- Click Check For Update
- You should see the permission dialog pop up
- Click OK to grant it permission to use a removeable volume (external storage drive)
- Channels DVR Server will continue as usual and you should not have to grant it permission ever again
We're sorry for this inconvenience. We want to make sure your Channels experience continues without interruption. We work hard to ensure Channels works with all of the newest features of your operating system.
