    I want to set a UNC path as my recording location. Unfortunately because of a crappy issue with WSE2012, my server doesn't show up in the Network Browser (although it is perfectly accessible via mapped drives or typing \\server\TV Recordings).

    Because of this I can't use the "browse location" dialog in TV Setup as my server wont show up. I'd like to just type the path "\\Server\TV Recordings" in the Recording Path text box but it's read only! Where is this setting stored so I can modify it directly?

    In the TV Server database "Card" table, "recordingFolder" column. You can use visual/GUI-based tools such as MySQL Workbench, SQuirrel SQL etc. to modify it.
