Recordings have a hi failure rate

Post by toddbailey » Sat Aug 22, 2020 7:24 pm

hi all,

I'm seeing a disturbing increase in failed recordings. Yet no record of why. All systems look normal.
originally it was once a month, now its many times a week.
the watch recordings page show failed recording in yellow
Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this? there isn't any usable info in the log files, cpu use and disk space are fine.
thanks

Probably signal interference. Check all antenna connections. Bad tuner, splitters, amps? Could be lots of things between the antenna and disk.

Excellent theory except it happens on both an ota antenna and from a sat receiver. i've watched live while having reception problems and never has the recorder failed. even if this were true, are there any settings that will make myth less prone to failure, a nice to have feature would be to display a black screen with white text saying it's having issues and will continue to record until the timer limit is reached?

In my little corner of the world, recordings from OTA broadcast are noticeably weaker in August than the rest of the year due to atmospheric conditions. They tend to clear up as soon as the air is a little cooler and less humid.

YMMV,
