Glad it is working now.  Just for interest, which Mac model and OS 
version are you running.  What tuner(s)?  Using antenna or a cableco?

What kind of recording rule have you set up?  Record at any time on 
any channel is usually the best option.  The backend log should 
indicate why a recording failed.  Look around the time the recording 
was supposed to start.

Did you know the backend has a mini web server built in?  The address 
for mine is -- obviously you need to 
substitute the ip address of your backend machine.  With it, you can 
quickly check what your tuners are currently doing, see upcoming 
scheduled recordings, and any jobs that the backend is running.  See 
Information>Backend Status.  Some of the other bits are experimental 
(HLS) or not functional (Hardware Profile) on the Mac, though.
