Appears to be a type of race condition when deleting recordings from "Finished" tab while TVH is recording multiple recordings at the same time. It doesn't always happen (hence belief it is a race condition) but is reasonably repeatable.

Through further testing I can confirm the behaviour is still the same while not recording. It seems to be more repeatable if selecting large selection (> 20) of finished recordings at a time.

I would happy to run a debug build to help identify if someone can help with guidance. Thanks

Unless you provide a stacktrace from a build with debug symbols nobody is able to see what's going wrong in your case.

Happy to help try to debug. I'm using Docker for tvh and I had searched for image with debug symbols but wasn't successful in finding one with a recent build.

I'm currently using

Can you point me in the direction of Docker build with debug symbols?

Latest master is on GitHub, if you want to package it into a docker container it's up to you to do that. It's not officially supported or recommended to do that, so you're on your own.

As a workaround I've noted if I select multiple recordings (tested on 400+) on the Finished tab and select "Move to failed" and then delete them from the 'Failed Recordings' tab (again 400+ at once) TVH does not crash
