dvblink_configuration.xml empty?

Postby olli460 » Tue Feb 24, 2015 4:15 pm

Hi,

I've just had to manually restart my server as it crashed but now it won't come back online, I checked my dvblink_configuration.xml file and theres just loads of whitespace in there ?

My server won't come online now. Can i please have the default dvblink_configuration.xml file

thanks

Have you dvblink_server beckup file?
I will advise you do reinstall dvblink server and do restore from it,
in any case it is not good idea to substitude dvblink_configuration.xml file.

Hi, i just install the server on another PC and copied the .xml file into my directory but i've lost all my settings?

I always take regular backups from the Interface and have lots of files like: dvblink-20150223-1658.xml

Is that not the same thing?

Do i have to manually set everything back up again?

Unfortunatelly, you need configure all again.
If you substitute dvblink_configuration.xml file to new one, your TV Source settings will not appear, but most likely something may work wrong

The backup file (in your case dvblink-20150223-1658.xml) and dvblink_configuration.xml file are not the same.
But you can reinstall dvblink serever and then do restore from this dvblink-20150223-1658.xml
in this case all your settings will appear.

If you will make only the replacement dvblink_configuration.xml file and then restore from backup file, all settings should appear too, but something may work wrong

I just tried doing that but nothing restored.

I don't mind re-installing everything and configuring it. However is there a way i can copy over all my scheduled recordings?

Of course nothing be restored. Only For experiment you can place new dvblink_configuration.xml (you say that you installed dvblink server into another pc, so bring dvblink_configuration.xml file from it) and then do restore.

When i tried to a FRESH reinstall dvblink server then re-add all my packages, I clicked activate and it said "Product already activated" but it was red and saying requires activation so wouldn't let me do anything.

I tried re-install of dvblink with my existing folder and files still in place and did a restore and it showed all my sources & channels correctly but i when i click TV Media i get Internal error.

Thanks for your help so far, Feel like i'm getting there.

Just tried to uninstall the Connect! and re-install it and TV and Media library is now showing. All my scheduled recordings are gone though, No way of getting them back ?

**edit**

Looks like the schedule has now come back! I think everything is working as intended now.

What should i backup so i can recover incase this happens again?
