yavdr-0.4 noob question - adding audio, picture and vdr archives

  • Hi

    I've been a vdr user for 5+ years, but am trying out yavdr-0.4 for the first time.

    Am getting my head around the avahi mounter, process-template processes etc for editing configuration (as well as getting used to Ubuntu, having always been a Fedora person!)

    I have an existing RAID5 store of vdr recordings, plus other disks of audio and pictures (several TB)

    What's the cleanest way to link these "mounts" into the yavdr environment, from a standard install of yavdr-0.4?


  • A possible solution is to use the bind option within fstab:

    1. # mount your disk to an existing directory (create if necessary)
    2. UUID="03029c93-f6c9-4530-9198-d69f96c2fe8a" /media/Data ext4 defaults 0 0
    3. # do a mount-bind to bring your files to the yaVDR-directories for media
    4. /media/Data/Musik /srv/audio/ none bind 0 0
    5. /media/Data/Filme /srv/video/Filme/HDTV none bind 0 0
    6. /media/Data/Serien /srv/video/Serien none bind 0 0
    7. /media/Data/Bilder /srv/picture none bind 0 0

    If you want to allow access to these files via NFS exports (e.g. via another yaVDR system), you have to modify /etc/exports, too. Add the option "crossmnt" to all exports by creating a custom template.

  • Thanks - that'll work, but it's a but crude.

    What is the recommended way to handle this in yavdr?

    I suppose I could manually mount my existing partitions as /srv/vdr/Video.00

    Or should I be creating a .service for the RAID, using the zeroconf setup?

    Any other ideas how to permanently make a new home for vdr recordings?
