[SOLVED] Guide to record to a network share for H series?

----- Original Post ------

Hello all, and a happy new year!

I was looking around for a guide to enable recording on a network share for a rooted H series TV (H6400, 2130 firmware), but I can't find it anymore. I tried the 80_80_record_to_nwshare.init script that comes with SamyGO, but it fails:

Code: Select all

/mnt/etc/init.d # /mnt # showmount -e 192.168.1.5 | grep TVRec
/DataVolume/TVRecordings *
/mnt/etc/init.d # sh -x 80_80_record_to_nwshare.init start
+ . /dtv/SGO.env

+ NOW=20151231-175613
+ echo  20151231-175613 End Record to Network Share script (80_80_record_to_nwshare.init)

I'm not sure if this is the right way to do it, or if it's for an older TV series. If it's not the right way, can anyone kick me in the right direction?

<offtopic> I enabled mounting of NFS shares, and the experience was unbelievable compared to DLNA - I could see thumbnails for pictures and videos and I could see pictures and videos in the same folder! I was so happy I did the dance of joy...</offtopic>

NO :)
I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!

Pretty please? Is at least PVR the right keyword to search for, or is it only for older series?

Look at dedicated topics for C/ D series. You may need some adaptations of scripts, but i think everything is well explaned. Search on google samygo record to nfs share or PVR over NFS etc ...

Ok, thanks for the pointers. I thought it was possible since you have no problems emulating a usb device... I'll look into d series as well...
I thought it would at least work with usb gadget support pointing to an image file stored on a network share.

Im not experienced in H series, so i can not give you instructions. But for d series you need vusb init, modified for nwshare. It exists but disabled by default. Check

@sectroyer: I get it that's not working, but for instance - what's keeping me from keeping a small usb formatted as a network recording device and replace the CONTENT folder with a symlink to a network share? Or I could mount a share on top of the folder... If that works, why wouldn't vusb work?

I will try what I mentioned, but I'm low on time. I'm just trying to understand why it won't work...

This WILL work. But you will be able to record ONLY "small usb size" of recordings :)
