Windows 7: Wiped out TV recording again, how do I fix it?

Wiped out TV recording again, how do I fix it?

I just did a complete system restore to a client computer(Windows 7 Pro x64) from WHS 2011(x64) and I was trying to get the Libraries back in working order and didn't get very far, MCE would only recognize any new music & videos that were added recently. All the old stuff showed as already being added, but MCE wouldn't show them in the libraries.

-So I removed all the watched folders and then readded them, which did not help at all.
-Then I removed the features of Media player & Media center
-I then deleted my Homegroup because I'm having sharing issues with the server, then I created a new Homegroup on the server first, then I joined the client to the Homegroup (isn't that what your suppose to do?).
-Then I added the features of Media player & Media Center back to the system.

But now the recorder won't start recording any shows at all (they show on the schedule, but won't start recording). I have deleted the series and added them back in and nothing I do will make the recorder start working again.

I'm getting majorly frustrated at such a simple thing as "resetting the Libraries".

What can I try next? I am looking at all the services that are running and all seem to be started that deal with MCE recording schedules, so I'm at a total lose as to what to check next. Other than reload the OS from scratch.

Any Help would be appreciated.
