I need some help to troubleshoot my Vero 4K+ setup.
First of all - a listing of the hardware used:
Router: Netgear genie C6250EMR (ISP provided router)
Tuner: HDHomeRun EXPAND HDHR3-4DC (4 tuners)
Switch: Linksys LGS105 (not enough ports in the router - so 5 port gigabit switch needed)
NAS: Synology DS107 (to store the recordings. NFS share created)
Vero 4K+ with standard Kodi setup, and TVHeadEnd service enabled.
The problem: Some scheduled recordings end up being either partial or missed completely.
For instance I have an example of a recording - scheduled to last an hour.
I end up with a recording of 15 minutes or so - and then the recording stops.
Nevertheless in TVHeadEnd it is reported as begin “complete” - under finished recordings
Another recording (see image - Unthinkable) - gets partially recorded - ends up in TVHeadEnd under failed recordings.
Reason: No free adapter.
Monday - august 5th - I intend to go to my brothers place - and redo the whole setup.
I hope that fixes the problem at hand.
If not - is there a TVHeadEnd log-file I can look into for troubleshooting? (assuming the error has to do with TVHeadEnd).
Regarding the network - could the ISP router be a bottleneck? (people often seem to be dissatisfied with their performance, and tend to set the ISP router in bridge mode, and then use their own router with better specs).
Good point fzinken. Yes all tevices are in the same LAN!
Vero is the only device used for playback - so we can’t blame WiFi.
Last but not least.
I’m aware that the NAS (Synology DS107) is ancient in this world - but it has a Gigabit network interface, and I assume that is plenty for this kind of operation. (even if you had 4 recordings and 1 playback going at the same time?)
That was my initial thought - but as I asked specifically in post #4 for possible capacity problems - running TVHeadEnd server - AND - using the Vero as playback device.
And Sam replied with a “That should work” - I would assume he already knows, that I’m running TVHeadEnd on the Vero.
And yes the NAS max out the CPU - when there is two concurrent recordings - using NFS.
This monday (august 5th) - I will do a new setup from scratch - the NAS will be factory reset to rule out any (old) misconfiguration.
I owned a Syno DS-107+ which I replaced by a DS-214se when Synology stopped updating the 107-series … and that was in year 2014.
I appriciate using HW as long as possible … but here it has reached the edge of what is possible and what make sense to invest time. Time to invest in a new and fast HW. The old NAS could still serve as backup device in the intranet.
