I may not be asking in the right place, so I'm happy to be bumped elsewhere. I'm not very computer-literate, though I've been running BOINC and WCG for a decade+.

BOINC - 7.22.0
Apple M2 Pro, Ventura 13.5
World Community Grid

Problem:
This is a new Mac Mini (and updated). I set the Mini up from an existing MacBook Pro using Migration Assistant. BOINC installed OK but I checked for the latest version anyway. WCG ran for a little while, with the fans running fast so I dialled the CPUs and time back to 75% (a couple of days ago). From yesterday, the WCG Project is listed, but there are no Tasks. I've tried Update, Reset Project and then did a BOINC reinstall, but still nothing. For what it's worth, there is a statement at the bottom of the screen "Connected to localhost (7.22.2)"

Under the WCG Device Manager page, the Mac Mini is not shown - the MBP is there. I suspect (but what would I know?) that the problem is BOINC rather than WCG. My MBP is running with what appears to be an identical configuration to this Mac Mini, without any problems at all i.e. it is downloading Project units , executing them and uploading the result.

I am very close to certain that I'm doing something pretty dumb, but have no idea what.

Any help to get BOINC/WCG working on this machine please?

Thanks.

And the missing devices are a well known problem with WCG, since many months now.
It's discussed in many threads on the WCG forum. I suggest that you post about your problem (and the device ID) in this
WCG forum thread. The WCG techs, can then manually add your missing device:

Missing Devices in My Contribution


Edit, added: If the missing device is totally new to WCG, it can take up to a week before it shows up. So, wait a week or so, and if it hasn't shown up by then, use the above forum link, and post about your issue.
