I'm thinking about converting my LinHES system to a VirtualBox guest system. I'd like to put recordings on the host file system using Shared Folders.

For those who are running LinHES in a virtual machine and using shared folders, could you share how you configured your system? Can you use add_storage.py to add the shared folder to the available storage? Did you change the mount point of /data/storage/disk0 to point to the shared folder instead?

How have people been successful at using Shared Folders?

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I cannot comment directly on virtualbox, but my backend is virtualise in ESXi VMWare and I store my recordings on my NAS and I have no issues with this whatsoever. From memory I used mythtv setup to add my storage directories after mounting my NAS.

Thanks for your input; Storage Directories were just the thing.

Now I'm struggling with time sync after resuming a paused MythTV virtual machine.
