View Full Version : demo problem: unable to change video directory
Whatever directory I add in the advanced options, it records to c:\program files\... there is no disk space there.
Sage TV version is 1.2.8. OS is Windows XP SP1 on a P4/2.54 GHz w/512 MB of RAM
Happauge driver dated 12/13 (latest update from web site installed)
Hauppauge PVR 250
I have sun's java version... version..? a fairly recent version installed.

Did you also remove the C:\Program files...directory from the list of available recording locations? If so, then you just need to change the channel for it to start writing to the new location.
I reinstalled on a fresh XPSP1, no luck.
sage.properties contains the following line:
seeker/video_storage=C\:\\Program Files\\Frey Technologies\\SageTV\\Video,2000000000,2;D\:\\VCR,1000000000,2;
There is 1.6 GB free space on C: and 51 GB on D:
This is what I get:
"seeker is out of disk space. recording must stop" or something along these lines.

I had the exact same problem. I removed/reinstalled 1.3.2 beta and now it works.

Since you specified SageTV to leave 20GB free on the C drive, it thinks you're out of disk space because it can't get 20GB free on the C drive. Just remove the C drive as a video directory and you should be fine.
Why would I want to remove the C: drive? Once there is more disk space available I want SageTV to use it.
the number is 2.000.000.000 btw. You need a recount :)
The software actually ignored the 2 GB limit and filled the disk almost up to the last KB. Sounds like a bug to me.
