DVR deleted our recordings. Shrugged it off. Recorded some new shows. Cannot record ANYTHING now.
A few weeks ago we had a series of brown-outs that completely reset our box a couple of times (when the system came back up on the TV, there was a big X on my screen). I kept worrying about my recordings, which I've been meaning to pull off of there through my PVR, but still hadn't. Luckily, the recordings remained though, and I felt pretty secure about it.
Well, we had some electricians over to fix our problem and they cut the power completely. After they fixed our issue, when the cable box came back up, to my horror... our recordings were completely gone!
I did a lot of digging into the issue and it doesn't seem like there was much choice but to deal with it. Occassionally I'd see an AT&T rep respond to someone here and say "send me your account info." No idea what the resolution is/was to that.
I reluctantly shrugged it off after a couple of days. The previously scheduled series recordings remained, and so I had new shows to watch.Well, back when I had my old recordings, we had only about 15% capacity left. We have another 10 - 15 shows on our "new" setup. But now, any series recordings I had simply don't happen. I can't even record new shows as I watch them. Nor can I even rewind a live show.
I have a suspicion that all of our old shows are still on the disk, and we have now completely filled up our space with these additional 10 - 15 recordings.
Is there anything I can do? I would positively *LOVE* to be able to get some of those old recordings back. I'm on a news broadcast on one of them, and a cousin of mine is on a TV show on Food Network on another recording.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
