My 240 series 2 with the latest service update has recently refused to play many shows that previously worked fine.
This unit was originally hooked up to a digital cable box from Comcast and I recorded many shows from digital channels. I moved to Verizon Fios when it became available but did not get a digital tuner for this TiVo. The new S3 that got the lifetime transfer got the cable cards and this unit reverted to the analog channel lineup.
Another S2 in the house did get a digital tuner and I had been transferring shows to the S2 240 fine.
Now the TiVo tells me that:
Error playing a recording
The TiVo DVR was not able to record this program because there was no video signal on the channel. You may have been trying to record on a channel that you don't receive.
Press select to continue
The shows take up space on the hard drive and the info screen is complete except for the channel number. These recordings used to play fine. Now they will not transfer to another TiVo or the TiVo Desktop application and they simply do not play.
Has anyone else seen something like this? Are these recordings gone or just mis-indexed?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
