Timeshift buffer location.

Postby BartZorn » Wed Dec 13, 2017 2:24 pm

Some days ago I posted the following in an old thread, which may not be followed by anyone.

I have been away for a while, but now I have restarted using DVBlink.

I have a dedicated SSD for timeshifting, but I am unable to get DVBlink to use it.

I have added the following line to dvblink_configuration.xml:

<timeshift_path>F:\Timeshift</timeshift_path>

I save the xml file to my desktop. I verified the line is still in the file. I copied the xml file to the installation folder and gave the required permission. Finally, I verified that the line is still in the xml file.

Next I restart the dvblink_server service. The result is that my SSD is not used, and that the timeshift_path line has been removed from the xml file.

What the f**k is going on?

TIA,

Bart

This is embarrassing. I sincerely apologize if I offended anyone with my language.

So let me ask it simply: how do I specify the location for the timeshift buffer?

Thanks in advance,

I finally asked DVBLogic for help via email.

It appears that, before you make any changes to dvblink_configuration.xml, you should stop the dvblink_service.
I would expect this service to read this file once at startup, but apparently, that is not the case. It is somehow used as a dynamic configuration store, which gets rewritten every now and then. Beats me.

Anyway, my timeshift buffer is now where I want it.
