HTPC Disk Failure

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

Nothing much has been going on lately so I haven't had anything to write about. Tuesday nights Rachelle has her grad classes so it is the night I usually watch all the crap I've recorded over the week that Rachelle doesn't want to watch. So I go to watch family guy and find my Home Theater PC is OFF! Thinking back I realize the power went off briefly Friday morning (I know because it reset my alarm after Rachelle left and caused me to be an hour late to work) and I never turned it back on. Bummer...all the shows I scheduled to record between Friday and Tuesday didn't get recorded.

No big deal, it was only a few shows that'll probably be rerun sometime soon. The big deal was that when I started up the server it would mount the disk where the recordings and tvbuffer are stored. I tried everything in my l337 toolbox but couldn't get it to mount. Finally I had to just reformat the drive and then it started working great. So I lost all the recordings I had. Suck. And to add insult to injury since mythtv stores everything (except recordings) in a database the system thought the recordings were still there and wouldn't let me delete them because It couldn't find the associated files. It took me a while to figure out how to get rid of the phantom recordings but it's all set now.
