Yes, it did.
OK now I call uncle!! as I am at a loss as to how this could happen, something going on in your setup that not going on in the rest of the TiVos' community setups but i don't know what it is.
Just so we're clear, you were watching "live TV" through the TiVo? In that case, it makes even less sense. You are always watching a recording, even if it is just the live buffer. Maybe you have some weird disk gremlin who is throwing away part of the disk h/w buffer on a new recording, and not writing it to the disk. "Nightmare at 32 Million Bytes".
The only thing I can think to try that would perhaps be fairly easy is to swap the TA's. I can't see how it would cause this problem but I can't think of anything that would that hasn't been eliminated.
Disk gremlins and uncle--LOL!
In all the years I've had TiVos I've never had to ask for help because I always found a way to solve the problem. If I can't figure it out myself I come to this forum--so far I've always found an answer here. But this one has me completely stumped--and now you too! Maybe it IS gremlins!
The last time I fiddled with the TAs I lost reception on my other TiVo for several hours! They're behind the TV in the giant mass of wires (they run so hot I keep them away from everything). Next time I have to move the 600 lb. TV stand with the giant TV and all its boxes, I'll try that. If the problem ever resolves or I find a way to solve it, I'll let you know.
Thanks for everything.
Report this in TiVo Margret's update thread and/or crxssi's change log thread.
E-mail TiVo Margret your TSN along with a description of the problem.
TiVo seems to be making an effort to get this place (TCF) back to how it used to be, I just hope history doesn't end up repeating itself.
Will do. Thanks.
There is no such thing as "maximum capacity" on a TiVo. There is only, "Zero unused space". Zero unused space is the optimum recording state for a TiVo.
Not functionally, it doesn't.
