Samba share and "use automatically"
« on: July 24, 2011, 09:36:53 am »
I was confronted with the fact that since a week or so my core was filling up with recordings that used to go to my samba share. The message "low disk space" was appearing on all orbiters.
When checking the storage dirs on myth my samba share was not listed anymore. I did run the "/usr/pluto/bin/mythtv_setup.pl" a couple of times manually and it showed my samba drive was not added. Only after I enabled "use automatically" on the share details it was added again and used for recordings as usual.

Do not know if this is caused by any updates (mythtv_setup.pl has got a date of 07/13/2011 but shows no big differences to a backup file I had) or my system started a life on its own, but I wanted all of you to know so that if you get into the same situation.....

the share should NOT be used unless that option is checked. i believe that was a bug that was fixed some time ago where it would be used regardless.

merkur2k,

Clear, I have never changed this setting before (afaik it was always unchecked) but I noticed that the share wasn't used anymore for recordings. My setting is now that "Use Automatically" is checked and everything is like it was.
