I’m a bit stuck w/my transcoder. I think the transcoder died yesterday. It looks like I was able to restart it, because it’s showing active in the Explorer.
Here’s the output of the ./livepeer command I ran -
liveuser01@localhost:~/livepeer_linux$ ./livepeer —transcoder -ethUrl ws://127.0.0.1:8546 -publicIP 184.108.40.206

My transcoder’s current state in the Explorer shows the last reward round as 1055 and that I didn’t claim it.
I’m trying to figure out what to do next -
1 - How can I confirm the transcoder is active, is seeing the explorer indicate “active” enough?
2 - Is there anything I can do to claim past rewards?
3 - How can I get my transcoder claiming automatically claiming rewards again?
I hope this topic will be helpful for others. In addition to recovering from a failure, I imagine it would be helpful when bringing a transcoder back online after schedule downtime too.
