Client can't record (1 Viewer)

Hi Guys, hope you can help.
I recently have a Windows crash on my server, and the thing wouldn't boot up. Eventually I reformated and loaded windows again.

The problem I now have is that I can't get a manual record to work from any client. Everything else works.
I think I may have missed something quote basic but I'm at a loss.

Just a note, when you are sitting at the MyTV Screen and use record know, it asks whether to record the current program or until stopped, and then sets the schedule, but the recording doesn't start.

If I set up the client on the server machine this works fine, so it seems to be a network or permissions issue.

I'll answer any questions require to get this fixed

I also just found out that the miniguide data is incorrect although the normal guide works okay

okay, sorry guys, logs attached.

I noted in the server log that it says remote control error.

I know this is the problem but I don't know how to fix it
