Have mounted a hard drive on PC using CIFS protocol

Am able to record using the web interface.

I would like to set up Timer record


I am able to bring up the timer record window by pressing reb button then green button, however the only option i have after setting the timer and channel options are ngrab and switch in the drop down menu.

Question is, how do you get CIFS or NFS into the drop down menu?

Is this the correct method for setting up timer record on DM 500?

Regards

Carlysun

PS: I have hydra phoenix

Have you tried setting the timer "as is"? Does it do anything?

(In the Gemini image you have the dropdown options switch, nfs, ngrab)

Yes, with Gemini I've recorded to my PC harddrive using the remote and using the timer. I've also mounted my plugins on my hard drive. All using cifs (and thanks to the guides by pcd).

Dont have ngrab configured yet, I have read that the best quality is from CIFS.

I will try ngrab and post the results this weekend.

I will load gemini image this weeknd and try timer record.

thanks for all your help so far
