Record TV show on Nvidia Shield to Synology NAS

Post by jberinga » Tue Sep 11, 2018 7:02 am

How do I configure recording and time shifting with TVMosaic Live+ on a Nvidia Shield, that will store the files on a Synology NAS?

If you need your recordings and time-shift at Synology side, it is better to install TVMosaic package directly onto Synology and use TVMosaic android app as a client. You will get exactly what you want.

Thanks Oberon, for the quick response.

I have been experimenting with that as well, but when I play a TV stream it stutters a lot.
Or do you have any tips for optimizing this?

What is the source of your TV signal and what is the Synology model?
Also, is shield connected via wifi or ethernet?

The source Ziggo DVB-C on the TVButler and the Synology model is the DS214se.
All equipment is connected by ethernet.

But to get back to my first question: it is not possible to record to the NAS from the Shield with TVMosaic Live!+?

TVMosaic Live does not have recording functionality.

Do you have any other peripherals (like USB hard disk) connected to your NAS at the same time with TVButler? It may cause stutter.
Also, which USB port have you used on Synology to connect TVButler?

The main reason to install tv mosaic on the shield was for transcoding. Most Synology´s don´t have the power to transcode.
I have tv mosaic install on a synology 1515+ with a hdhomerun extender and it doesnt transcode . The NAS just doesn´t have the power.
That´s why I want to install it on the shield and place my recordings on s share folder on the nas. Is that possible?
