TiVo suddenly wants to delete everything after 3 days

Hello all,

All the shows in our TiVo box have suddenly started displaying an icon saying that they will be deleted after 3 days. 

Up until yesterday we could keep shows in there as long as we liked. Lots of things like Planet Earth etc we like to keep to re-watch.

Anyone know what's up?

Thanks in advance!

James

if the recordings has been watched they will be deleted to make room for new recordings that are due. you should be able to make a recording to keep to stop it from deleting when space is needed.

It is actually that TiVo will delete them after 3 days - if it needs the space.

The wording isn't good - but as long as the disc is kept tidy with space then recordings are not deleted automatically.

OK great, I have only used 22% of the memory in my box so should be alright!

Many thanks,

 

James

That, ozsat, is brilliantly well put. I was away for 6 weeks over christmas and for a little while my box was hovering around 90% full, and a little more at times...sailing pretty close to the wind I suspect

I'm now down to 70% or so and getting less of this error - but it's reminded me of the bad wording. "If tivo needs space, these recordings will go, but if it doesn't then ignore me" indeed!!

MPEG4 for HD would be nice :-)
