Well, well well.... problem solved...

So, I tried a re-install of TV-Server, with no luck, themI noticed a wee 'disk space low' icon on my taskbar. Recorded TV drive was chocka (208MB free) ...deleted a bunch of shows and viola... things are working great again!

I'm guessing the probelm was due to there not being enough space to allow for the time-shift files(s) ...Another trap for 'even the long-time' players I guess...Embarassed

Cheers everyone for their input and teaching me a few new acronyms! Laughing
