I have recorded to Drive Extender share for two years, hundreds - if not thousands - of recordings, and only had problems with a handful.andrewNZ wrote:I've not had good experiences recording to a drive extender share. I added an additional external HDD for Argus TV (and it's ancestor) to use.
I always found drive extender caused glitches and stutter. But I mostly put it down to hardware, the H340 isn't exactly high powered.
I can however confirm, that recording to non-DE shares seems to work fine with Argus 2.0.1 (Argus recorder).
After updating FTR from 1.6 to 1.7, it looks like the first two recording went well, and then all others have the problem described in this thread. Problems continue with Argus TV 2.0.1. It seems to me, that something in this regard was changed in For The Record 1.7 (such as what I mention above). From a WHSv1 Driver Extender perspective, the change was to the worse.
What are the chances someone will look into what happened in FTR 1.7, and in a future Argus release we are able to record to DE shares again...?
In the meantime, I assume I should create a Processing Command that moves the files from a temporary non-DE share, to a DE share (\Recorded TV). Has anyone created such command they'd like to share...? The trick here would be how to get a folder with the recording title in the destination folder (like it is in the recording folder). The Processing Commands screen says %%CHANNEL%% is available in the arguments box, but hopefully %%TITLE%% is too. I'll run a few tests unless someone already knows / has a solution.
