Maybe I didn't make it clear what I'm wanting to do. I want to be able to lock a recording to stop me accidentally deleting it. On Sky you can lock a recording and a padlock icon appears against it meaning it cannot be deleted until the padlock is undone using the PIN code and only then can the deletion be done. It's just a double safe protection on a valued recording. I have definitely read on Virgin guidance pages that something similar is available on the Tivo box but try as I might, I cannot find how to do it. Many thanks in advance.
wartroll54 on sky you can do that because they have options for you to do that because their service is provided to do that but on virgin tivo there is no way you can do that buy locking a recording instead of deleting its impossibble that virgin havent got the service to provide that i havent come across that you can lock you can lock channels but not on recordings you can request pin for watching recordings this isnt available what you have in mind
Thanks for your responses. I am aware that I can recover deleted items but that is SUBJECT to me (1) firstly realising that they have been moved to that folder in error and also (2) the TIVO box itself potentially deleting it from the my deleted recordings folder to make room for further new recordings before I realise that it's gone. There are lots of intentionally deleted recordings for my accidentally deleted recordings to get lost amongst. Thanks anyway.
