Re: Where are "tasks' stored

Hi,

Your tasks (and the computation for figuring out what to record) are cloud based on our servers.

If you lose the NAS the DVR should automatically re-record things as the air again.

Hi,

Go to http://my.hdhomerun.com/ - you should see your device. If it shows a red X for Channel Lineup click on it to run a new channel scan.
