The TiVo Premiere protects all new recordings from deletion for 72 hours, but does a much better job of reporting when the DVR will delete older recordings. It no longer labels every recording as may be deleted simply because it is 48 or 72 hours old. Instead, it calculates the disk space requirements for scheduled recordings to report what recordings the DVR will delete and when. It only flags recordings as will be deleted when recording space runs low, or when an upcoming episode will replace an older one, per the user's own series setting for keep last X episodes.
My Premier is deleting new recordings as soon as they are done, to make room for future recordings, even though the deleted recordings wouldn't even push my HD past 80%. Is this normal? I'm losing recordings, even though i have plenty of space (well, plenty being a relative word). Last night, it deleted the 2-hour finale of Amazing Race and The Simpsons, and my HD was only at 68%. Is there anything i can do to stop this?
