Backup Exec 2012 Home Tab on Monitoring Screen

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I've got 2 issues with the Home Tab of the Symantec Backup Exec 2012

1. Once in a while I get my graph of Backup size messed up as in the screen capture attached. Something happens that renders the graph wrong and in wrong color code. I can fix it by changing "Show Last:" Day(s) field but it's going to be a pain when I'm going to issue #2. This happens once a day on regular basis and flipping between tabs does not reset the view.

2. I want to set htis home screen on one of spare monitors that I us for monitoring. I'm not sure if BE2012 has an auto-refresh feature of the home screen (as for me, having such feature for such a nice interface is a must) So I'm not sure if setting up this view on Monitoring Screen will work at all.

Can someone point me to the right direction or is there a patch or some plug-in to make it work. Or is there a web interface that can be configured to display similar to Home Tab screen?

BE does not have a web-interface.  However, you can set up a remote console and use that to take a look at your media server.  See this article

Seeet, that'll do the job. :) I'll give it a try this upcoming week.

What about the chart being messed up? Is it only me or anyone else has similar issue?
