Need some advice please on my 2020 with a new 80gb harddrive-drop-in.


All has been working well until today.

There is a free preview on Stars and I have been recording since last night.


My Replay shows that I have over 6 hours left at best recording.


My problem is that it is erasing my recorded programs at will.


It shows them recorded and then when I check back later, they are not there anymore.


I am lost to say the least.


Any ideas?

That's odd, are your recordings set as guarenteed? I've never used a 2k box, it's pretty close to the 3k box. Unlike the new software I don't think the 2k software would ever delete programs.


It's not that all of your shows were deleted, right?

If the programs are non-guaranteed the Replay will delete them to make room for guaranteed recordings. The 6 hours indicates the amount of free guaranteed space available. Count up everything you have recorded (1 for each hour at standard, 2 for each hour at medium and 3 for each hour at high) and see how close that number is to 80.


(it's been a while since i had to think about guaranteed/non-guarnateed)

Thank you for the prompt response.


The recorded shows that Replay are deleting are all guaranteed.


That is what I cannot understand.

Sounds like a ghost problem. I would extract the shows you currently have, and then do a factory reset (382 zones). Reprogramming should fix it.


If you have one channel that disappears, it can create a black hole. It is very uncommon for this to happen, but a reset fixes it.


Also, if your drive is going bad, this will happen. Pull it and run a fitness test.

Hi Heathriel,


Thank you for the response.


The drive is new from Maxtor and reset with the proper software by Noel Valero.


Your "ghost" idea is something for me to think about.


I just added "Stars" to my program guide yesterday to take advantage of their free weekend preview.


Some where Replay is not to happy about it. he.he.


I shall keep on trying and thanks again.


Tom
