I run Channels DVR on a headless WHS2011 machine and its been working fine. However I recently noticed that it had stopped working. Upon investigation I noticed that the server had applied a windows update and had rebooted. I would appear that the Channels DVR did not start again after the reboot (automatic login is disabled on the server for security reasons). When I log into server via RDP Chanels DVD then starts working again.
I want to configure the server to start Channels DVR automatically after a reboot. I seem to remember that Channels DVR now runs as as a service. I tried searching for the service that it was running under but could not find it; there's no "Channels DVR" in the "Services" list.
How can I configure it so Channels DVR starts automatically without a user logging in?
I tried to run the installer again, to see if this was the problem. The installer seems to show that the DVR Engine was running. So I stopped the DVR Engine in the installer and reinstalled the program. This lost all my TV schedules so I tried to reinstate a backup. To do this I had to untick the DVR box in the web interface settings which then gave me this error (latest version of Chrome on Windows 10)
I then went back to the reinstate the backup and I could see this (note they all show 0 rules and 0 recordings)
But when I picked and reinstated the backup everything seemed fine and I could see the 27 recordings again
So it looks like I have hit a few bugs here whilst trying to fix the auto start problem.
Thanks in advance for any help
