Add Path For Beginner.

Hello Everyone.

I am after some help adding folders which are stored on my PVR to serviio's shared folders.

I would like to stream files direct from my PVR through serviio to my TV without having to copy them to my computer first.

Kind Regards
Scott

Re: Add Path For Beginner.

How do you normally get content from your PVR to your computer?

FTP (Filezilla).

I would like to be able to stream content direct from my PVR to my TV without the hassle of moving the recorded files first.

Re: Add Path For Beginner.

Can you access the hard drive on your pvr? If so you should be able to put the Anne info into Serviio.

tell us how you access the hardrive.

Re: Add Path For Beginner.

you should be able to map the drive to serviio in the same way.

ie. //192.168.1.25/dir/dir

Re: Add Path For Beginner.

This is the folder location on my PVR as copied from Filezilla while I was browsing the PVR hard drive

ftp://admin@192.168.1.6/DataFiles

So under shared folders in serviio I clicked add and typed in the following

//192.168.1.6/Data Files

I then clicked on force refresh.

When I access the serviio server via my TV I can see the DataFiles folder but its empty. What am I doing wrong?

Check your folder permissions.

  Code:
•My files (on remote drive) are not scanned

Make sure the user that runs Serviio server/service has got access to the shared folders. If you are on Windows, check that the user running the Windows service has got access. To run the service as a different user go to Services (from the Windows Control Panel → Administrative Tools or typing "Services.msc" in the Run command on Start menu), select Serviio, right-click -> Properties, Log On tab, enter user's details and restart the service.

To access a NAS device the exact same set of credentials must be created on the NAS device. The Windows credentials must be a local user and not a domain user. The user must have "Run As Service" rights. The remote path must be entered as a UNC path in the Serviio Console (e.g. \\server\folder)), mapped drive letters will not work since user running the Serviio service is not aware of your mapped drives.

Re: Add Path For Beginner.

Thats not going to work as the device only has FTP / webserver access, and add path does not support FTP access.

The only option would be to have a rss feed with entries pointing to individual links that use the webserver (but you would have to manually add each video that you want) you would find these links by using the webserver to download a video, and then look to see what the url is, and then follow that convention, or write a plugin for accessing an ftp server.

Re: Add Path For Beginner.

Thanks for your replies everyone. Writing a plug in sounds way beyond my skill set. At least I know I am not doing anything wrong.

Is anyone aware if there are any plans to add this functionality to serviio in the future?

This PVR runs linux, so it might be possible to install samba and share the drives, I did a quick search, but could not fine one. There are third party mods for this PVR called taps.

it might be easier to get a basic NAS and setup an automatic FTP to copy the files from the PVR to the NAS and then stream them via serviio.

Re: Add Path For Beginner.

Can anybody suggest a good NAS to purchase.

I do not know a lot about "NAS" so please be patient with me.

Can I connect a "NAS" to my Topfield TRF-2400 as an external hard drive (this is an option with the TRF-2400) via usb, save my recorded files to the external drive and use the NAS to share the files over my network via wireless connection?

Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

Check that serviio services have permission access :

Start -> Exec : services.msc => Select "serviio" service, properties, Log On, use account with administrator permission.

That isn't going to work as it isn't a permissions problem, it simply doesn't have a samba server, just and FTP and webserver.

Probably, but he said : " When I access the serviio server via my TV I can see the DataFiles folder but its empty.".
Personnally, I use a network HDD (buffalo), and I use UNC path like \\192.168.1.10\Share\video and I need to change serviio service permission to allow the scan of this folder path.
