Internet service was out and so was Serviio

A snowstorm hit my city and the (cable) internet was down for days. I tried to stream videos from my own collection but Serviio would not work. As soon as the internet service was restored Serviio began working. This must be by design. Please give us an option to use Serviio without internet access.

Warm regards,

Re: Internet service was out and so was Serviio

No, not a Serviio issue. Something else was happening. It just so happens that the hotel I'm staying at suffered an Internet failure yesterday morning, and it wasn't restored until about 6 hours later. During that time Serviio was my only available means to occupy my time. It was below freezing and snowing outside, so I wasn't going anywhere! But I had no issues using Serviio.

One thing I did do during the Internet outage was to edit commercials out of some recorded TV shows, and then move them into my Serviio Recorded TV folder. The only issue with no Internet was that the metadata could not be retrieved, so I had no cover image or program information. After the Internet returned most of them updated the metadata, although I still have about 6 without it.
