TVHeadend losing access to recordings after reboot
Added by I dont want to provide my real name 5 months ago
Good Morning Everybody,
i am experiencing a strange behaviour of TVHeadend and not really sure what to do about it. I googled a bit, but it didnt lead me to scenarios applying here.
My Setup: I am using Dietpi 8 (=Debian Bullseye with a large number of handy custom scripts) on a NUC9i9 - which has been working really nice and smooth for almost a year now. My TVheadend Version is 4.3-2027.
I use a 16 TB USB3 Hard Drive as storage pool for recordings. I usually kept the disk utilization around 50% by setting according retention parameters for the files.
Roughly a week ago i noticed three strange things (probably not related to each other):
1.) USB drives OR SD-Cards were usually auto-mounted to /mnt/<UUID> by default. This suddenly changed to /media/<user>/<UUID> (probably an update or something).
2.) The dbus-daemon suddenly had an unexpected high CPU utilization out of nothing. Like 5-15% on each Thread - always (and my i9 has 16 of them).
3.) After each reboot it seems like my TVheadend is losing the access to the recordings already made - the files are still in the filesystem - unchanged and where i configured them to be. However the counters in the upper right corner of TVheadend (where it usually says "Free/Used by TvHeadend/Total") always restart at Zero for "used by TVHeadend" and my recordings are moved to "removed".
I will be happy to provide any additional information you ask for.
Thanks for the help!

Solved by changing the autostart options from autologin with Desktop to manual login with local terminal.
I dont know why this solved the problem - but it did.

I use USB HD for recording storage as well. I found it works better to create a mount for them in /etc/fstab. This way they get mounted without having to login and the mount point will not change.

This is the way.
