    I recently "Cut the cord" and sold my BOLT, but kept my 2 tivo premieres because they both have lifetime, and I use for OTA.
    They see each other but when I open the "Bedroom" premiere from the living room box, all shows have a Red X next to them and I can't play them. Same from Living room box to Bedroom box.
    When I open any show it shows "X this program will be deleted within 24 hours" even tho it was recorded this morning and both tivo's have expanded hard drives so are only about 10-20% full. I use mostly for Local sporting events.
    Is this because they are OTA? Even shows that are on tivo that were recorded via cable I get the red X. I have done multiple reboots of boxes and internet.

    Do any shows every get deleted?

    Check your account on TiVo.com because they may have deleted your Premieres also.

    Just flaky TiVo interface like everything else (Why I cut my cord)...
    This morning I could see bedroom from Livingroom no issues.
    But couldn't see ( getting the X to be deleted) Livingroom from Bedroom.
    Decided to reboot again... and now I can see livingroom from Bedroom, but livingroom cant see Bedroom at at. I don't watch one from the other that much, but geez going through hoops to get it to work. Tivo strikes again.

    Can you play the shows?

    Listed as going to be deleted is very different from being deleted or not being able to play.

    Shows often get marked for deletion, especially with an upgraded drive, but never do get deleted.

    I can play from shows on Bedroom tivo from Livingroom but not other way. But before I rebooted both, it was just the opposite.
    Understood listing as being deleted is different from being deleted, like I said MUCH free hard disk space available. I can delete shows I can watch from the other room, but the tivo that is showing X next to each show I can't do anything.
    I'm sure if I played around with it did more reboots, it might "Catch" and see both from each other, but right now, it's just not worth it.
    I only pretty much watch Local sports on the OTA Tivo's (I am 4 miles from HD antennas and get GREAT picture), for it's great slo-mo and replay ( I have YouTubeTv now, and their FF and RR sucks).

    Force a few TiVo Service Connections on both boxes and throw a couple Reboots in for Good Measure?

    Done that Many times.
    I'm not too worried about it, I just thought if others had this issue, and had a fix it would be great. Rebooting and force connections isn't it.
