#4787 closed enhancement (invalid)

No error shown if storage groups are not writeable

Severity: medium Keywords: storage groups mythtv

It was not very obvious what was going wrong until I found the logs. But for some reason the security setting were not set correctly for my only storage group. thus when I went to start livetv it just exited out straight away yet scheduled recording were ok.

As soon as I fixed the permissions it was ok.

Should there be a check in mythtv setup to ensure that the storage groups have write access? Or when you try to start livetv and it has a problem with permissions to the hard drive it throws up and error instead of jsut exiting with out any reason.

Looks pretty good so far, very happy.

Milestone: 0.210.22

There is a check when exiting mythtv-setup:

Cannot create a file /mnt/store/.test - directory is not writable?

Do you want to fix this problem?

but if the read-only fault occurs later then you are stuffed. Having something popup when attempting to watch Live TV is difficult (and it does nothing for scheduled recordings). I think a popup would require enhancing the protocol to add a new status. This will not be happening in 0.21.

Closing this as a combination works-for-me/invalid/feature-request-without-a-patch. We do check for writeable SG dirs during configuration, but don't check every time we need to write and provide feedback to the user if the write failed. As Nigel stated, that would require quite a few mods.
