That's a really useful post but can't seem to find any way to do it. My colour for options is green not yellow and going into that there doesn't seem to be any way to ask for shows 'about to be deleted'. Can you help?
There's an option for Going Away Soon, which I presume is some wags way of saying Being Deleted Soon. I set it like that and the option doesn't show, so that presumably means there is no content. Would be interesting to hear from someone who has something show in it.
Sorry, yes that's what it's called - Going Away Soon. Didn't appear on ours until there was anything in it but now it has appeared on the left and we have 2 shows in there. Will make life easier, just need to keep checking for the day that it dumps everything in there - although I'm not convinced when it 'panics' and suddenly deletes 20% it will give much warning! We'll see!
No I think you'll find when it has a moment it won't be curteous enough to let you know, it will just delete it. I think that is more for when your hd is getting full and it shows what it will delete automatically if you don't delete anything. This is different to it just randomly deleting a load of stuff when it doesn't need the room
Just joining this conversation because last night my Tivi deleted a shed load of stuff unnecessarily. It was only at 50odd % now it's at 38% but it's deleted the first 2 episodes of Grantchester, leaving me with the following 3, when I'd watched none of them. Deleted a load of other unwatched stuff too. And when it deletes things, why can't it stuff them into "recently deleted" so that you can get them back? There was plenty of room to do so.
It should never make space for future recordings, only space it needs for recordings now. That is faulty logic. You should be able to leave your hard drive 99% full and assuming there is nothing set to record for four days then it should delete nothing until day 4 when it records the new program, and then should make space for that program only. Any other actions it takes are illogical.
