If you think about it - you have no channels in the database, so no 
recording rules will match any available channel. So it's correct 
that you'll see no recordings scheduled.

As to whether they will automatically re-appear - well I don't know. 
Logic says that when you put your cards in, and configure your 
channels, in theory the scheduler should be able to schedule your 
recordings again.
