Hi all,

After a Windows crash, I have installed this computer 5 times with no luck.
everything works except the record now button on the clients. I cannot record at all on the client. If I load the client software on the server it works, but it seems to be that the record commands are not being recognised.

Please help, I'm at my wits ends.:D

Thanks in advance

Not that I got any responses here but I thought others may be interested in my findings.
I swapped the motherboard from the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P to a EP45-DS3L.
Problem disappeared.
Nothing to do with the six Windows installs.

The main difference I can see on the two boards is intel RAID and dual nics on the original board.
Anyway, I couldn't get it to work with the first board.:confused:

Just wan to say to everyone who helped solve this problem :D ..lol.

I fixed it.

FYI for anyone who has this problem.
Check the time on the server motherboard. If it is out by a substantial amount of time the client won't be able to record or stop recordings.

Once the time on the server was adjusted all my problems went away.

The clue was this post

I lost two weeks of my life on this :(
