Integrated recordings list removed in this version

There are some nice improvements in version 5.3 (see vendor’s list). However, I miss seeing the integrated list of “recordings” from all cameras that was easily viewed in the previous version.

UPDATE: The recordings list is back in rev 5.3.1 ! Thank you to the software folks for restoring this feature.
