Gary, while I did find the solution to the recording issue elsewhere, I appreciate all your hard work and dedication in attempting to resolve my issue not to mention the other issues that you did identify and fix for me. Very few program creators would go as far to help as you have.

In these trying pandemic times I think it's especially import to show our gratitude to hard working support ppl like you, so I just want you to know I sent a donation your way.

Thank you again, so much!

Oops! Gary, while rechecking everything I realized my guide Favorites, and prior recording schedule are missing. Lineup is populated and I did do a Save & Execute from EPG123. Do I need to do another Manual Import in EPG123 Client to get those back again?

Open the client and click the [Transfer Tool], then click the [Open recordings backup file] and select a backup file from around 11/18 or 11/19. That should have all your previous scheduled recordings.

To restore your scheduled recordings and your favorites, rather than use the Transfer Tool, you could use the [Restore] button and select a backup from around 11/18. Since you found the solution, I think that might work. I'm surprised that even after removing WMC and adding it back in that the registrations weren't taken care of then. I have no idea why/how you lost those registrations in the first place but glad you found the solution!
