Foxlink and NSA are just a means to an end. They don't do any real work. That is down to SMB versus NFS. I can't comment on the approaches taken by each of those to getting the job done.
Does not have foxlink installed but has had a runaway recording.
There were quite a lot of runaways reported when RTS was first introduced but the most common cause was fixed a year ago since which there have been very few runaways reported, some but not all, appear to be related in some way to the use of Foxlink.I had a runaway recording when RTS was being introduced. RTS was enabled at the time the runaway happened.
I seem to recall reports of occasional runaways being linked to RTS. After my runaway I disabled RTS and haven't had a recurrence, although of course that proves nothing.
The experience of finding 35hr / 80Gb recording was fairly alarming so I haven't been tempted to use RTS since, which is a pity.
Thanks for the tip. I'll give it another try!
I use Arbookmarks to get to the beginning of my padded recordings. I do find that the beginning mark is accurate but the end mark is often in a random position (eg, a third of the way through, five minutes past the end of the recording or no end mark at all).Do we have any tools that will analyse a recording and report where the AR points actually are?
Strangely I also had a run on recording last night, the BBC News at 10 ran until until I shut down the box with remote control a bit after midnight.
I had that on a runaway AR recording last night .In my case, on all occasions this has occurred, the box controls have frozen and will not respond to the front panel or remote. The web i/f is still working, but the only way to stop the recording if it is still going is to switch off mains power.
