    Is there a way to undelete anything on the HR-20? I did the double dash click to delete a show but had my Battlestar Galatica folder selected instead of what was supposed to be deleted and now I've lost all of Season 3 so far. Help!

    The dangers of "double dash delete"! No, there's no way to undelete. I no longer use the "double dash" shortcut for exactly this reason. It's too easy to accidently nuke something forever.

    Use Red button to delete instead. You'll get a confirmation dialog to delete. Sorry to here you lost BSG.

    Probably not but they usually do an entire day of all the seasons episodes so keep it in your season pass manager and when they come on again it should record them again.

    Why? You couldn't undelete there either.

    Learn the lesson. Don't use double-dash. Use the red button and at least you will get a confirmation but if you get used to confirming and don't use the confirm to think, you will just lose stuff anyway.

    Well.. I could, but that's not fair I suppose, because I had installed hacks on it. But yeah, no more double dash delete for me!

    I record BSG on both the HR10 and HR20 just because the HR20 missed it once and yes the undelete feature is nice on the HR10. BSG is much better in HD though. You could always download a BSG torrent.

    Cool, I didn't realize they were that fast. Thanks! So this little mishap only costs me a few bucks.

    Ummm, why would you pay for it when SciFi makes it available for free on Hulu TV? ;)

    Actually, I stopped using double dash so long ago, I forgot it will delete stuff. I never liked it. Too error prone and no recovery.
