Losing Recordable Disk Space
Hello. I'm having a problem with my recording disk space. I noticed it last week. Recordings were disappearing on me. I checked the disk space, and it was 96% full with just two one hour HD programs and two two hour HD movies. My first thought was, what the heck is going on. When I calmed down, I did a reboot of the DVR/STB. That seemed to fix the problem. But not so fast. Last night I checked my disk space again. This time with just two one hour HD programs, I had only 76% usable space available. Another reboot brought it back to 98% usable space available.
I haven't contacted customer service yet, because I know the tier one person will want to do a reboot, even though I've done it twice. It doesn't seem to matter if you tell them you've already done a reboot, they want to do it anyway. Any ideas what could be the problem? I dread having to get a new box. I'd have to set up all my series again. 😞
