Recordings gone

Any ideas?  Previous recording have all gone today, turn on tv/ box, went to recordings and it says I have 0 recordings ! 
I had a few. I understand they can’t be retrieved but am right to assume a box issue?

I’ve been unable to access the on line chat service. It simply does work so virgins offer of help is an empty promise

Looks like it might be a wider fault https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Virgin-TV-360/I-have-a-360-box-Suddenlg-today-all-my-recordings... 

I'm not a Very Insightful Person (just a little bit, sometimes). I don't work for Virgin Media (but then nor do any of the offshore customer service agents).

Hi PA5656,

If the 360 has deleted your recordings and planned recordings it's a sign that the box is faulty, especially if it does it more than once. You can either call Virgin on 150 from a Virgin phone, mobile or landline, or 0345 454 1111  from any other phone to report a fault, or wait here for one of the forum team to pick this up which might be 2 to 3 day's.

When phoning choose the option to report a fault, then ignore all the options offered and you should then be placed into a queue to speak to someone.

You could also try a factory reset of the 360, and if you haven't got any recordings you might as well go for the format disk option and if or 'when' the box deletes everything again then phone Virgin.

They might suggest you set the Auto delete option to off, it probably already is and shouldn't affect planned recordings but you can check by doing the following;

Press Home > Recordings > Recorded > View All > Manage Storage > Enter your pin > Auto delete when space needed > Set to Off.

Spent a longtime last week trying to get a response, Vurgin Media “customer service “ isntbrealybisvut! It is clearly designed to waste your time or put you off. I do wish these web designers would actually test their work. Anyway after a long chatbthevkadyvordered me a new box delivered in 5?days.  5 day came and went - no box. Had to start over, hope this time it  arrives Seems the lady Inchatted to didn’t actually follow up the order but barked it as sorted! 

Thanks for your post on our Community Forums @PA5656

Can you please confirm if you have since been issued with any updates in regards to the replacement of the box you're referencing?

Thanks,
