My TiVo box does not seem to store any programmes for more than 6 weeks. I don't record a huge numer

I have had my TiVo box for 9 months. It doesn't seem to store any programmes longer than 6 weeks. It doesn't ask me before deleting them. At least I assume they are being deleted, or are they hiding somewhere? It's hopeless if I want to keep something. I really don't record a huge amount but definitely don't want to lose the Ashes highlight programmes. Help.

Set those you want to keep 'keep until I delete' in series links or if it's an individual program highlight it and pick 'more options' (I think that's right. I'm not in front of my TiVo at the mo)

 

BUT do not put everything to KUID as it will cause a bug that will see a lot of deleted programmes with no way of retrieving them. 

 

Try ray looking in recently deleted folder at the bottom of the my shows page. Not guaranteeing it but they might be there.

It's also worth checking the series links settings to make sure your series links aren't set to keep only 5 episodes. I usually set my series links to keep 25 episodes.

 

Edit: I should point out that this setting can be applied as a series link default so doesn't need to be applied to each new series link but would need to be changed for existing series links.
