Lost Saved Programs on Explorer 8300 HDC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've saved about 40 hours of non-HD programs on my 8300. Tonight, when I flipped on the TV, it says "No Shows Saved." If I try to record something new either directly from "live" programming or from the guide, I get an error message saying that I am out of storage. It gives me the option of pressing A to eliminate some shows to free up room -- if I do so, I then get the message that I haven't saved any shows. The box works fine as a cable converter.

I'm a Time-Warner customer in Manhattan (New York City). I can't get a technician to come until Monday, but I also have the option of lugging the DVR to a TWC center and swaping it.

My questions:

1. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

2. Is there any chance at all that the saved shows can be resuscitated (this would be the only reason to wait for a technician call)?

3. Is there anything I can try? (Obviously, hard reboots haven't worked).

Thanks,

Clammy

I've been having a similar problem. My scheduled recordings would record, but then after a day I lost them. They weren't deleted either since the hard drive keeps on getting fuller, until the point where I can't delete any shows (since I can't access them) nor record anything new. Have you figured out a way to solve it yet? Thanks!
