OK, more on this front. This is a box I've setup for testing before migrating from Windows 10 (our main PC). I had the same problem when trying to view a recorded show, the recording showed under "What's Next" and I clicked play, but that's when the "reconnecting" started again using the Web player. I checked the logs and it said "no such file or directory" from when I tried to play.
I went into the file viewer (whatever the Linux app name is for navigating files through the GUI) and I could navigate to the folder and see the files. I went back to see if it would play and viola, it did.
The physical storage device is a 6TB Raid 0 pool (3x 2TB) using a hardware raid controller. The OS is on a separate SSD drive and the OS automatically maps the raid drive under the /media folder. I'm wondering if the dynamic link is somehow "going to sleep" or are the raid drives somehow going to sleep and not waking up except when accessed (which you would think Channels DVR trying to access would do).
As you can probably tell, I'm relatively new to Linux, so I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask the question, but will start here since some here use Linux and understand the structure of how Channels utilizes the file structure of Linux. This is also my first foray into hardware based raids, previously I used DriveBender on Windows to create a seamless drive structure for the Channels recordings.
Thanks for any suggestions.
