Recordings won't save to my new folder


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


A fantastic product, clearly the best DVB software!!


I have a minor issue with my recordings NOT saving to my larger capacity HDD drive.


  • Folder is called D:\DVB
  • The folder is shared, and security permissions is set to be open and public
  • The recordings are going to the default user\public\videos folder. That is an SSD drive with much lower capacity


Please can you suggest something I may have missed?

In case you use the separately installable "Recording Service" of DVBViewer: This service runs with the "SYSTEM" account of windows, not your user account. So folder permissions must respect that.

When I create a new folder on drive D: as logged on user the folder properties -> security tab looks like this:




As you can see it grants write access for authenticated (logged on) users. Recording to this folder works if DVBViewer is running in the password protected user account in which the folder has been created (just tried). However, users in general only have read access, so they can't record to this folder.


How does the security tab of your folder look like? Which Group/User entry allows DVBViewer to write to this folder?
