When I try to watch a scheduled recording i frequently get the error message: "recording unavailable, the file for this recording cannot be found" and sometimes the recordings work just fine. Can someone tell me how to debug this?
Live TV always work, and it also records as I watch.
The file is missing in my recordings directory (/var/lib/mythtv/recordings). I watched that folder as the recording started but it doesn't appear. Is the file recorded to another folder and then moved to it's correct location on completion?
I see no errors in the mythbackend.log:
TVRec(1): Changing from None to RecordingOnly
TVRec(1): HW Tuner: 1->1
Started recording: ...
TVRec(1): Changing from RecordingOnly to None
I checked the database record for the recording the filesize field is 0.
Is it possible that some autoexpire function wipes the file directly after it has been recorded?
My tuner card is Hauppauge NOVA T-500 (two channels).
