read basco read! Wink
is there a threshold at which tvheadend starts buffering to disk? or does it start writing immediately at 'pause' press?

Same problem like basco. Version of tvheadend is the same described in post #12. XBMC is the latest build from today (RC). What I'm doing wrong?

Code:
git clone https://github.com/tvheadend/tvheadend.git
cd tvheadend
git checkout feature/timeshift
./configure --enable-timeshift
make
make install

Gone to Configuration -> General and setting the Path for Timeshift /srv/Timeshift (which exists), pause works but nothing appears. No files are written.

Check the filesystem permissions. The user under which tvheadend runs has to be the owner of that folder and needs write access to it.

that does not explain why it still works?

ps aux | grep tvh
hts 11050 7.8 0.3 1112104 32288 ? Ssl 05:06 39:50 tvheadend -f -u hts -g video

i did a:
chown hts:hts /mnt/storage/timeshift

i will check this evening if it makes any difference

ok, tested it with previous tvheadend.
i can now confirm that in tis version timeshift works:
tvheadend_3.3.199~g759b5b1-dirty~precise_amd64.deb

in this version of tvheadend (latest) timeshift does not work:
tvheadend_3.3.207~g8276b58-dirty~precise_amd64.deb

built like this:

git checkout feature/timeshift
./configure --enable-timeshift
make
./Autobuild.sh -t precise-amd64
dpkg -i ../tvheadend_3.3.207~g8276b58-dirty~precise_amd64.deb
