TVHeadend cant record

Thu Mar 26, 2020 7:58 pm

Got a pi tv hat for chrismas with current goings on got time to sort this. So installed, scanned for channels all good, can watch the streams in vlc all good. But i cant records, all looks good the profile is setup for admin the folder exists and it can be written to by all. But when i select record goes straight to error and file missing. Only thing i can think of is the users might need to do something as its only got the one admin on it per tutorial. Anyone got any thoughts?

Are you recording and playing from the web interface i.e. "http://<yourRaspberryTvHatIPaddress>:9981" ? and launching VLC from within Chromium Browser?

Have you considered using the TV streaming capability of Kodi? Kodi can access your scanned tvheadend channels either through a separate device, or by installing Kodi on top of your Raspbian desktop. It also displays a better tv guide
