If you want logging of recordings being done, then you need to add "-v
record" to the mythbackend command line. Or you can run this command
with mythbackend already running:
mythbackend --setverbose record
and this to turn it off again:
mythbackend --setverbose norecord
You do not need to use sudo as all this second instance of mythbackend
does is connect to the running copy of mythbackend and tell it the new
verbose setting. Make sure not to mistype anything as if mythbackend
does not see a valid --setverbose or --setloglevel option it will try
to run as a full mythbackend instance.
I normally just have "-v record" on all the time, so I can see what
happened if I get a failed recording. You do that in the
/etc/mythtv/additional.args file in Ubuntu. This is what I have:
root@mypvr:/etc/mythtv# cat additional.args
root@mypvr:/etc/mythtv# ll additional.args
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mythtv mythtv 74 Nov 19 2016 additional.args
If your system is taking a long, long time to do some things, then it
might possibly be a problem I came up against a long time ago, where I
had two drives where the recording partitions were jfs format and were
needing to be fscked. They were not in the Default storage group, but
in another storage group that was still searched for recordings, and
every time MythTV wanted to look for or create a recording file, it
tried to access those partitions and wound up waiting for a long
timeout on each before it went on to the next one. I have also seen
this same effect where a storage group was on a network drive where
the network connection was failing and retrying.
