Tivo recordings are not visible but Space used has not changed
My Tivo box appeared to be a bit sluggish - slow in menus and pausing every few seconds when playing back recordings. So I switched off and on. When it had restarted all my recordings were no longer visible but the space used is still 95%.
Can I retrieve these recordiungs? Nothing in Deleted folder.
Planned recordings details are still there but I noticed that whilst in standby the planned recordings did not start until I manually woke up the box then the recording started from that point resiulting in a partial trecording :-(

Thanks for getting back to us. Collette isn't in, so I've picked up your post, I hope you don't mind. I'm sorry to hear that you had a dud TiVo® box. While it's good that our engineer was able to get this fixed by replacing the box--I certainly understand how frustrating it is to lose all your recordings.
I don't know if you are aware that you can copy some of your TiVo settings from your old box to your new one--unfortunately not the actual recordings, but settings such as all of your previous series links can be copied over to your new TiVo. This is available for up to 14 days after your new box installation. After that, the old settings will not be available.
