post-processing script doesnt spawn

Added by Aaron Rogers over 10 years ago

im not able to add a post-processor script for my recordings. it works when i run it from commandline, but nothing happens when i tvheadend trys to spawn the script. im not sure why. when i quote the command in the webinterface like:

"hts-sort -f %f -b" 

the log is showing me this:

Apr 21 08:58:28 localhost tvheadend[14373]: spawn: Executing "/usr/bin/hts-sort -f [...] -b" 

but without quotes:

hts-sort -f %f -b

it only shows:

Apr 21 08:54:42 localhost tvheadend[12146]: spawn: Executing "/usr/bin/hts-sort" 

is post-processing broken, or does my script has to have certain permissions? im not able to figure this out. could anybody help?

You should write without quotes:
/absolute/path/to/hts-sort -f %f -b

How do you execute the script from the shell when it works? it the script set as executable?
Add something at the start of the script that logs to a file etc to easily see if it gets executed.
