Using DVR drive between two computers


I am currently residing in two different homes. I have all my DVR files on a portable drive and hooked up to my iMac currently in my home on the East coast. When I go to live on the West coast, I plan to bring the portable drive with me an plug the drive into my computer there. Both computers will have the Channels server installed on them.

Will this work? Do I need to do anything special to make sure each computer is up-to date with what I watch or is it simply plug and play?



Thought I would check if anyone might have an idea about this? Thanks.


This will work fine, but every time you move the DVR drive you need to open http://x.x.x.x:8089/restore to import the latest database backup so that all your newest data shows up.
