I’ve set out to build aspare parts box and connect it to my two external tuners, load Ubuntu16.04.4 and Myth 0.28, record a few things and then update. Once I pilot the change I'll employ it on my main box. My basesystem is combined FE/BE with an SSD for software and a separate harddrive for storage.

Itkinda reminded me of basic training all those years ago (I’m oldenough where I faced the draft) where I was the guy the TI describedas the doofus whose shoes looked like he shined them with a Hersheybar. So I’m kind of leery of posting at all thinking Airman Doofusmight be making a rookie mistake since I’ve always been and remainin awe of the knowledge on this board.

The Cheese metaphor refers to the fact that having thrice loadedUbuntu and Myth from scratch and following the guide letter forletter things don’t seem to work.

> What happens is I’mable to load FE and BE software just fine. However when I schedule ashow the recording light comes on briefly on either the ota or cablecard tuner and I receive the message “Single recording +0recording” just like on my primary box. However Watch Recordingdisplays show(s) selected but nothing seems to be saved and I get the0.00 GB message. IIRC this is where things went awry last time beforeI employed Steven’s corrections.

Hard to tell without the BE log file. Maybe storage group folder permissions?
