You know, the repeating manual record for the same time and night sometime in the future and say repeat every whenever then use the "really remote remote control" to force the net connect 15 minutes later thing.
What is "port forwarding" or "DMZ?" I imagine it compromises the security of my network to some extent. Could you please elaborate a liitle more on the advantages/disadvantages of doing so and how one goes about doing so.
If you set your router to forward an external request for a port, say, port 80, to a specific internal IP, then that port will be exposed to the net, but only that port, and only to the machine you specified. Currently there's no known virus that can take down a Replay, nor a significant amount of hackers that would even bother, so the only thing you'd really have to worry about is that someone would start leeching files from your Replay with DVArchive. However, they'd need your IP address for that, which while it can be resolved from your ReplayID, its not common practice to do so, nor is it to randomly force a random replay to randomly upload files to a random person.
DMZ opens all ports, not just one, to a specified machine. On a Replay, again, not a big deal. On a computer this isn't a good thing.
