Recorded programme can only be deleted, not watched (360 box)

Up to speed

I tried to watch a BBC recording on my TV360 box from about 18 months ago just now but the only option i was given was to delete it. I then noticed one or two other programmes in my list of recordings, each BBC, could only be deleted, not watched. They were all at least a year old. There are still BBC programmes in my recording list that are older but I am able to watch them.

What has happened to cause these programmes to be delete only?

BBC 1 SD got replaced by BBC1 HD on the TV guide in January 2022, so 108 is now BBC4 and 101 is BBC1 HD.

 It does say on the link that "Recordings will last up to 12 months before being removed", and that date has passed, they might still be available on iPlayer.

Ah thank you. That explains it. Both will have been BBC HD ch 108 recordings at the time. Yes, one show did say it was still on iPlayer.

I recall a similar thing happening to some BBC4 SD recordings after they switched off that channel a few years ago.

Still, at least I managed to inadvertently free up some space on the box! 

Thanks.
