Recording Services Not Broadcasting

Recommended Posts

I've had RS running on an older PC for some years now without a problem. However, this PC has developed a nasty habit of crashing and resetting the boot order, so basically if I'm not around to fix it it can't be rebooted. So I've moved the satellite cards and RS over to a newer more powerful and reliable machine. I've got the hardware part to work fine using unicast, but I can't get RS to connect, also the option for this service is not available in the drop-down list only the original service and if I manually enter the values the connection test fails. Furthermore, when I click on the web interface option on the RS tray icon nothing happens. I have tried disabling my security software in case that was blocking. Is there something I've forgotten? I've been through the online help and can't see anything else that I need to do. I've also looked at how the original PC was configured compared to the new one and can't spot any noticeable differences, excepting that the original was running windows 7 32bit and the new one is windows 7 64bit.

Mostly such problems are caused by firewall settings. AFAIK the Windows firewall automatically kicks in if other security software is disabled.

Griga, thanks for the thought but no joy. I even tried completely disabling windows firewall, along with all other security but still can't get RS nor web interface to work. I have a vague recollection of installing something like a http client server when I did it on the previous PC but as I can find no reference to this in the installation instructions it remains just that, a vague memory. Also if I look on my network the old machine is displayed as DVBViewer Media Server under Media Devices, the new one is not.

Cheers

Steven
