Ah you've just built this disc haven't you? I vaguely recall something about Tracker not playing nicely until there exists a programme for it to track. Try making a recording (or partial) and then deleting it; that should give Tracker something to play with if you then go to Create/Update

The disc has now been in use for about a week, so I have number of recordings and deletions, so I don't think it is that. I seem to remember reading somewhere that endpad plays a part, or was that just for an early version?

Ok, in that case I'd try:
1. Stop TWP
2. Remove (or rename) /var/hack/tracker
3. Start TWP

Then try Create/Update again.

(I don't think it would make a difference but I think there's a later version of TWP on the altepg site than that which comes with 1.0d)

Different error message this time:

I am running the altepg specific version of tivowebplus (2.1.b3)

Unfortunately there are several versions of TivoWebPlus all called 2.1.b3
Go to the home page of TWP and check it says
Code:
TivoWebPlus version 2.1.b3 (UK-20120723)

Create the directory manually with
mkdir /var/hack/tracker
and then retry

Actual version is TivoWebPlus version 2.1.b3 (UK-20120818) .

Deleting /hack/tracker and manually recreating results in the following error the first time I try to run tracker:

Code:
-------INTERNAL SERVER ERROR------  
--cut here--
action:tracker, path:, env:, code:'POSIX ENOENT {no such file or directory}'

    invoked from: "tracker_init"
    (procedure "MOD::action_tracker" line 2)

The full trace from the log file is

What you've described doesn't make logical sense (from a code perspective).

Ensure your /hack/tracker and /var/hack/tracker point the same place (the former is AFAIR a symlink to the latter) and are empty (apart from maybe tracker.cfg and backup/ )

If so then try changing the line (c. line 299) in tracker.itcl which says
Code:
variable trackerdir "/var/hack/tracker"
to
Code:
variable trackerdir "/hack/tracker"

Is that symlink the right way round? I thought /hack pointed to /var/hack but I don't have 1.0d so I can't be sure.

According to the error, the tracker script is finding a file a called "series" when it's doing a directory list but the file doesn't exist when it tries to open it.
Code:
find / -name  series
Also, check your directory permissions.

Smile Sorted

Ok. Seems to be sorted.

Tracked the problem down to ForeachChangedMfsFileTrans, which was never successfully returning. Seems it was never finding a program with a cancel reason that it was interested in (24, 6, 12 or 33). I was only getting 2 or 21.

So created a recording and deleted without viewing, and hey presto, it burst into life.

Surprised that it only seems to acknowledge that one file - the other things that I have watched and deleted, should they not be added to the list?

Thanks for all your help,

Lloyd

2 = Recorded a Different Showing
so it will track the one it did record

21 = Converted Live Cache
Don't know why it doesn't do this one; perhaps it hasn't got all the prog details needed to track it?

Glad it's working ok for you now.

It does not process the Converted Live Cache show because, like a lot of other shows that it does not find, it had not purged it from the disk - it was still in the undelete list.

As has been mentioned in other threads, the bigger disks we all have now often means things stay in the undelete list for a long time, especially if, like me, you don't record suggestions. For tracker to work well for me, I will probably do a regular purge of older recordings.
