That is a really interesting new aspect, which guided me to some new tests. I don't use samba, but nfs - and yes, it happens only when I mount a nfs- share. And yes again - the list is fine again after a reboot - cause the nfs- share will not be mounted automatically. So I took a closer look at the nfs share to find the reason, cause I use nfs- shares for years and never experimented such failures before. I found out, that this behaviour might be related to directories, that don't contain recordings, but other files. Last time, a harddisk crashed, I had no space beside the server recording pool, so I put a backup there. I tested then to mount the first subdirectory of the servers recording pool and things work fine again - no missing recordings. I guess it was my fault after all. kind regards Gero P.S. My real recording root on the vdr machine is /var/lib/video.00 - but as I'm to lazy to enter that path, I created a link /video that points to /var/lib/video.00 - so when I manually check recordings, I use the path /video/xxx P.P.S I found more configuration errors at skimming the logfiles. I think, I have to do a closer check of my installation. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
