Recorded TV files don't show up in Windows 8.1 app

Hello:

 

I installed the trial version of Media Browser on my son's Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet (Windows 8.1). After setup, I noticed Recorded TV wasn't listed, so I went to my main PC (server) and added Recorded TV to the library. I then went back to his tablet, restarted MB and Recorded TV was listed, albeit in the Folders section.  I went back to my PC and, in the MB dashboard, selected the hamburger icon in the upper left.  I found my way around to where I was able to place and then reorder the Recorded TV to the main menu.  I thought maybe that would help (but not really, because how could a simple reorder make the files appear?) but it didn't, the recorded shows were nowhere to be found. 

 

Does someone have an answer as to why the show don't appear in the Recorded TV folder in MB on a Windows 8.1 tablet?  I'm sure I'm missing a setting somewhere, but so far haven't been able to locate what that something is.

 

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

how did you classify the library on the server? i would use home videos if the folder structure is not following normal tv naming guidelines

Thanks Luke, that solved it!

 

One quick question; I tried to play a recorded TV show on the tablet as well as my phone but it constantly went into buffer state.  Is that a result of the WI-FI signal?  Or is there a way to correct it within Media Browser?  As it is now, it's almost unwatchable because it stops and starts too much.
