This has just happened to my TIVO. 97% last night. 56% today and a ton of stuff has just gone BUT the biggest issue is that none of it was in recently deleted folder just a couple of programmes there.
This is a big pain in the harris Virginmedia !!!! I've lost a lot of series linked episodes on series I hadn't got around to watching like Arrow, Elementary and Flash. As well as all of the recent Doctor Who series.
Not good enough and is it actually enough of issue to expect a refund for the TIVO services that we pay for ???
I know in advance that some people will disagree with this but it has worked for me since I got my Tivo nearly five years ago. In that time I have never had a programme deleted, unless by me, and I still have programmes recorded years ago.
I record everything I watch, even if I intend to watch it live, and whenever I set up a new recording, single or series link, I always set it to KUID, except for football matches as I expect to watch them live or nearly live. I also tend to delete most recordings once watched although, as I said above, I still have some long-term unwatched programmes recorded some time back.
I am aware that some people advise against using KUID as often as I do but it works for me.
I have a Cisco 1 TB box with Suggestions on. As a result of the recent box-swap programme, my V+ was swapped for a Tivo, another Cisco 1 TB. I have deliberately decided not to use KUID on this box, I am not deleting any recordings at the moment and I will see how this goes.
Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team)
It's hard to say exactly what programs went missing but for definite there was a half watched episode and a full unwatched one of the BBC's Napoleon documentaries. There were also a number of episodes of Place in the Sun (I think the "winter sun" version) but when on your advice we rebooted these seemed to come back.
We also seem to be missing episodes of Cradle to Grave.....
As I hinted at earlier, very easy for VM to fix. Just turn off the automatic disk management and let the users control what gets deleted, contrary to what they may believe we are not a bunch of idiots. As an ex software developer I do not believe this would be rocket science.
At the moment I have to waste considerable time doing the opposite, fighting the system making sure it does not delete stuff.
A response from VM here would be appreciated, waste of time calling support !
From my point of view this only became a major problem in the last couple of months, though I recognise others have seen it for longer.
Thinking of sending the TIVO back and asking for a V+ instead.
