I presume the answer is no. This is NOT manually “permanently delete”-ing shows, but my TiVo nuked over 25% of my recordings when I tried to transfer BACK a ~3 gig recording with pytivo. Oh, and the transfer actually didn’t happen. It put it on the to do list for some reason even though nothing else was happening. So I deleted it from to do and rebooted to hopefully interrupt a “go delete stuff” operation. I turned off suggestions, but will let other recordings happen. Since it was almost all old stuff, I don’t care TOO much about most of it, but if there is a way to recover in a computer, great. I know the actual recordings are encrypted, I just don’t know if the directory structure, etc is known to fix that way.
