TiVo wiped 50% of recordings

The day before the EPG update the 1TB TiVo in the front room decided to wipe 50% of the recordings, it's always on the limit due to the amount of garbage TV my wife records, in fact it was on 97%, it now shows 47%.

 

This happened in the middle of the day and exactly a day before the EPG update.

 

Can you explain why it would do this?

Conscientious rebellion against the garbage?

I assume that none of your series links were limited by number of episodes?

She's a TiVo expert ;-) and it was set to keep everything, it's deleted random stuff as well not just the oldest.

Re: TiVo wiped 50% of recordings

Keeping everything may well be the issue.

 

A bug which incidentally might have been fixed in the update.

As someone who makes extensive use of KUID and has never seen the "bug" I can only hope that any fix does not have the opposite affect on me Smiley Happy

 

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

For me it's not that big an issue but it is for the wife, it needed cleaning up in my opinion as it was out of hand.... my only issue is I've now got to source these missing episodes using alternative methods.

Re: TiVo wiped 50% of recordings

I had this problem months ago.  The only way to protect a long series is to padlock the series at the beginning by going to the further options page and changing" until space needed"  to " until I delete". It is irritatingly slow to do  but it does keep them safe - but always check on the status of each new episode and make sure it is padlocked.

A Virgin technician said it was the only way to guard against this mindless computer.!!

Apart from the fact that doing this to everything was actually the cause of another bug which deleted shows seemingly at random.

Re: TiVo wiped 50% of recordings

Ok this has happened again twice in two weeks, both on a Tuesday evening!

 

Seems to have randomly deleted 10% of recordings, some entire series and some random episodes.  Box was on 64% last night and now down to 54%.  Did the same thing last Tuesday evening as well.  It's also cleared out all deleted recordings despite having 36% capacity remaining so my wife can't get anything back that was auto deleted.

 

It's the 1TB box if anyone from Virgin Media can take a look what's going on.

 

All programmes are protected from deletion as well so the TiVO shouldn't be doing any of this itself!

 

Thanks,

 

Nick.
