upon researching this machine before purchase, i was told that even if you lose internet. you will still have X days of data available until your eat it all up and your internet is restored. I have router issues and lose the internet frequently and this never happened in the past 2 months i've had this machine. this morning every single piece of guide data was gone. my router did go down overnight but it goes down a lot and i never had everything disappear. strangely enough when i got it reconnected, it took a few minutes but it ALL reappeared, not like directv that took forever after you did a clear and delete. it's almost like it was 'hiding' or did it really d/l that fast? is this a bad sign of things to come? i have no trouble losing my 13th day out if my dsl dies, but if i am not home and tonight stuff doesnt record thats unacceptable!
