I installed Boinc, installed the project seti@home. Allowed access through firewall (McAfey) Now I get continuous "Scheduler demand in progress; Communication deferred for 05:00". Have set preferences to allow participation always.

OK I see Event Log says "Project has no tasks available". Does this mean they have enough resources in the pool?

"Communication deferred for 05:00" is normal message that appears for everyone (not only now but at all (good) times BOINC contacts the SETI@home scheduling server).
Even if you get tasks you will see "Communication deferred for 05:00" after that.

This only means that BOINC will not ask again for tasks from SETI@home in the next 5 minutes.
BOINC will try again and again every ~5 minutes until is gets tasks.

The downloads (green) appear to be at a reasonable speed (but not maxed)

Thank you. BOINC is running well.
