I've been using Emby for a while now, but I just started trying out the Live TV functionality and so far I haven't been able to get a schedule recording to work correctly.
Today I had a program scheduled to record and I turned off sleep mode (see secondary issue below) so that the server machine was certain to be running at the time of the recording, and the recording never started. When I checked on the recording a little over 3 hours after it was supposed to start there were files or any other indication that the recording was even attempted. When I checked the Live TV settings it still showed that the program was supposed to be recorded. Interestingly enough, when I opened the server configuration it appeared that may have in some way triggered the recording to start, as the folder and associated files were created right after I opened the configuration.
Yesterday I scheduled a recording and then left for a while and when I came back the computer was asleep. The recording appeared to start and run until which point the computer reached it's normal sleep timeout (1 hour) and at that point apparently the active Emby recording task was insufficient to prevent the computer from entering sleep mode. When I started a recording manually and then set the computer to sleep within 2 minutes, it appeared that the recording task prevented the computer from going to sleep, so I'm not sure what the difference is between those two methods.
I don't know exactly where to start tracking this problem down, but hopefully I just have some settings incorrect?
I'd certainly like the computer the be able to go into sleep mode at some point, so the ability to wake it up for a recording or prevent it from sleeping during a recording would certainly be nice to have. I know that the wake timers are scheduled to be implemented soon, but hopefully there's a fix for the computer sleeping during an active recording as well.
The server machine is Windows 10 x64. TV tuner is a HomeRun connect quatro.
