No free usb slots: Record over SAMBA guide needed

Post by Tux »

Hi to all I'm new in this hacks.
My tv is connected to the net with wifi dongle so one of two usb of my tv is gone,in the other one i have installed all scripts and files for the samygo extension so i haven't free usb slot for the pvr.
I really need the pvr function of my tv but i haven't free usb slots for storage so i ask if is possible to record over SAMBA share.
I have successfully configure my windows machine to share dir with tv that are mounted on a fake usb device on the tv.
Is possible to create a fake usb device and make possible that the tv think it is a formatted xfs usb device ready for pvr. So i can simly copy the newboard4rsp and make compatible with pvr functions of tv this fake device.
I mean the read write permissions i think arent a problem because i can export for example the channel list directly on my pc when i select the fake usb/samba share.
i read a lot of thread about this but i didn't find a clear solution.
I use a modified version of the usb gadget driver that make possible to create max 8 fake usb device with customs name plus one that is the default samygovirt that can be hidden or not.
It works very well. My idea is to set 2 fake usb device one for MovieShare and one for RECORDshare.
i don't need unencrypted recording for me its good the simple encrypted pvr function.
is there everyone that can help me to achieve this?
I just try the nfs solutions but withouth success.
thanks in advance.

Use active USB hub :)
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!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!

If you can't fix it using dvct tape, you are not using enough dvct tape.

Based on the tutorial I gave him I have setup a recording over samba :) It's not really much different :)

sorry for OT but your link passed "samygo pvr nfs c series" for the google search...

regarding the main probelm: i'm a little bit worried about the wifi-performance for recording. as the critical point is a continous data flow and not the bandwidth...
but if a lan-cable had been an option he wouldn't have the usb-port problem (:
