    Did you open the ports on both server and client?

    Did you restart the recording service on the server?

    Hi

    This may help, or maybe hinder

    I assume this is the Workgroup list as seen on the client PC; but it only shows the server Rod-PC, there's no sign of the client PC itself? What is the client PC called please and is it a member of the Workgroup?

    also could you run netstat -n -b please? (The foreign addresses look a bit weird? e.g. www:xxxx is connected to the local IP address 127.0.0.1??)

    This is probably a[nother] dumb question, but the client PC is a physical machine, not a virtual machine?

    cheers

    I assume it is? How do I make sure? Here's a screenshot:

    I assume this is where the problem is?


    Maybe I need to add 127.0.0.1?

    But did you share the actual NPVR data-directory as it is pointed to in the registry entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\NPVR\DataDirectory ?

    I guess so. In the registry it points to C:\Users\Public\NPVR.
    So this is what I put in the Database Share field:
    \\Rod-pc\Users\Public\NPVR
    I set the folder as shared in the Server Pc. I can access it through the client pc using Windows Explorer.

    Now if you share the actual data directory (NPVR under \Users\Public) with the share-name NPVR, you should NOT give the whole path to the client, the share will point directly to npvr directory, so Server would be "Rod-pc" and Database share would be "\\Rod-pc\NPVR" (without quotes).

    Just want to quickly thank everyone for their patience.
    Well I tried using only:
    \\Rod-pc\NPVR
    But still no luck. At this point firewalls on both client and server have been disabled.

    Can you post logs (Nrecord.log and npvr.log) from both client and server when you try to start live-tv on the client?
