I have a question about Nowhere DVR as relates to file storage.
As I see it, when I export for iphone, the MPEG2 file (.eyetv) in my eyetv archive directory is converted to iphone or ipad format. This process exports it into the iTunes directory tree. When I view a show on NowhereDVR, I presume I am viewing the mp4/m4v file in the iTunes directory. However, in order for NowhereDVR to know that there is a show in iTunes, there must also be an MPEG2 file for the show in the eyetv archive directory. I gather this has something to do with the way that the native eyetv server is leveraged.
Now, I know that I can use plex or to view the shows in iTunes. And that's probably the most space-efficient way to go [storage being the matter that brought this to my attention]. Is there any way to use the nowhereDVR to see the files in iTunes without a corresponding MPEG?
Best to you, Chris, for the great work on this project.
Short answer, no.
The Roku is not playing the iTunes export, in fact you don't have to export the video at all for it to work with Nowhere DVR. You have to prepare it for iOS. Exporting
are different things in EyeTV. The prepared file lives inside the .eyetv package with the MPEG2.
