Re: TiVo box - recordings disappeared

I'm nowhere near my box to check specifics, but if you follow Home > Help & Settings > System Info (IIRC), the disk space is shown in one of the entries. Does this tally?

Are the recordings in the deleted folder, at the bottom of "my shows"?

Re: TiVo box - recordings disappeared

I have an update for you, I’ve just been though my series links and it seems I’ve been recording channel 999 Welcome to virgin ultra HD on a series link could this have deleted all my other recordings without asking? I’ve deleted all the channel 999 recordings and seem to have my hard drive back at 2% used 98% available

Well, you've posted in the V6 board but referred to a TiVo, and while both boxes run the same software, only the V6 supports UHD. Check here if you'd like to compare them.

If your old recordings were set to "keep until space needed", then new recordings would have overwritten old ones in date order. And an hour of UHD would use the same disk space as several hours of HD.
