My HD Tivo machine recordings are deleting themselves in an odd priority system. I still have software version 3.1.5 since I understand the newer version will muck stuff up.
I do let the TIVO suggestions record as they want. I also have SD recordings that are hanging out with the yellow exclamation point (may be deleted). I have noticed when any of my season passes have new recordings, some of my yellow exclamation point files will delete before my TIVO suggestions. All my other non HD TIVO machines do delete suggestions first and then yellow exclamation programs.
Any thoughts on what I can do ( I did a search but did not find this specific problem). I don't mind having the yellow ! programs, but I want them to delete after all the suggestions delete. I agree with some people that use the suggestions to estimate how much space is left, so I try to use them that way. I also enjoy watching some random show it records just because I might like it. (the surprise element, especially movies). Anyone else get this problem?
