Can't play recording from non host PC - kev_6424 - 2012-05-09 00:19

Hi,

Running Margro's latest Eden v2.

If I use TSReader I can't play recording on a remote PC. I can schedule a recording and see it in the list, just can't play it. Fails with below log.

The recording can be played from the host PC OK.

If I use the ffmpeg pvr addon, with the same config then this works OK.

The ffmpeg plugin uses rtsp streams while the tsreader plugin directly opens the timeshift buffer file. In order to access this file on a remote PC, create two shares for your timeshift and recording folder and add a link to these shares in the tsreader plugin settings.

thanks, that makes sense
