Debug logging FAQ

A: There is a property file setting to enable debug logging.

Edit and add this line:


Enter the line exactly as shown above. TRUE must be in all CAPS for this property.

Before editing the properties file, make sure SageTV or the service is not running. If you edit the properties file while SageTV is running, the change will be ignored.

If you are using a client, edit instead.

After this change, SageTV will create a new sagetv_0.txt and/or sagetvclient_0.txt log file in the SageTV installation directory each time it is run. Save those files from when a problem occurs to help track down a problem -- they can be emailed to betatest at

God Bless you Opus! I've been trying to figure out for DAYS why a certain couple of playlists wouldn't load! Now I know!

"Mon 6/25 22:47:25.280 Ignoring playlist: \\pep\mp3\Lists\Year\1990's-1.m3u due to missing element: \\PEP\MP3\By_Year\1990's\Janet Jackson - Go Deep.mp3"

I'm glad it was helpful, but please don't reply to or discuss things inside the FAQ thread; start a new thread instead. That thread is reserved for FAQs -- thanks.
