I have an LS-VL that I have successfully updated to firmware v1.53, but I cannot set it up for Time Machine. In webadmin, I navigate to Extensions : Time Machine, click the radio button to "enable" Time Machine and then select the folder that is set up as an Apple share with read/write access. However, I never get any form titled "Mac Information". There is no place to input the Target Host Name or Target MAC address. That form just does not appear below the Time Machine form. What's going on? How do I get to the form to input the Target Host Name and Target MAC address? Thanks.

I am going to try and configure my unit with Time Machine this weekend. I had the same problem before not finding the Target Host Name and Target Mac Address section so I can use the backup feature. I still didn't get any answer as to using Time Machine backup on my older PowerPC Mac G5. This is where the first unti I had crashed while attempting to set this up -- and I'm not wanting to destroy everything I've setup so far now.
Products: WZR-HP-G300NH, LS-VL

Are we really a week into September already with no word on the TeraStation updates? Please, as it was put in the early post 'these are commercial class devices' so why do we not get commercial (as in "we've already paid a hefty price for them") class support?
A simple "sorry all but we ran into problems and no updates yet, wish I could tell you when but I can't" would suffice. At least then we don't feel completely left out in the dark.

Is there a beta for hardware revision 1 of the LS-CHL yet? I haven't done a backup in 3 months and I purchased my unit new less than a year ago.
Any word on the LS-CHL V1's? Or are those owners just SOL?
If there will be no update, ever, then Buffalo needs to admit this ASAP so that V1 owners can start planning to upgrade to a different NAS solution that is compatible with Time Machine on Lion.

@portal: re "...but then probably didn't before Lion anyway"
Please take care with your statements so that you do not mislead other readers.
The issues here are related not only to the fact that Apple changed the allowed user authentications mechanisms (as required by the Finder) but *also* that Time Machine simply will not work if the storage mechanism allows the now deprecated authentication mechanism DHCAST128 regardless of what UAMS are (en/dis)abled for AppleShareClient.
It is perfectly valid for a NAS to have worked prior to Lion for both Finder (AppleShareClient) *and* TM but now after the workaround of re-allowing DHCAST128 UAM in Lion to only work with Finder (AppleShareClient) but not TM.

I agree wth ngarimu, My LS-QL work perfectly with backing up both my MBP and iMac. It was supported before Lion.
Your workaround is one of a few that allow the afp connection back to the NAS. But a majority of the people were need/want Time Machine to work they way it did with a SL installation; hence the title of the thread..."issues with Time Machine" .
Thanks for the post on the workaround, I am sure it will help a lot of people. But we also have to stay on top of Buffalo and get them to support their products the way other companies in the same market are doing.
