playback error (-3,0x80004005)


"All of the sudden" sage tv gave me the below message:

playback error in playback sage.playback exception Error: (-3,0x80004005) problem accessing the filesystem for playback

earlier it said something about the playback placeshifter stopped working also.

The only thing I did to it was that the computer was acting up with some windows file missing error so, I reset the computer to an earlier restore point (which fixed my computer problem for now).

Any ideas? Thanks.

Check your drive letter assignments to make sure they haven't changed. If you use UNC paths for your recording or import folders, make sure those folders are still shared and that you have the proper permissions to access them. If you run Sage as a service, make sure the service is set to log in as a user with appropriate permissions (not as LocalSystem).
