    I record CBS Sunday Morning every week. Turned the tube on a little earlier this afternoon to watch it. All of my recordings of other shows were gone, probably between 40-60 hours.

    The list showed 617 recordings of CBSSM, all today. Clicked on it and it showed a 39 minute partial. Watched that and everything was normal. Must have taken 5 minutes to delete all of them.

    There was a thunderstorm in the area about 5:00 AM, but no power outage or spike and all electronics are OK. Did this on both DVR's.

    Really chaps my butt.

    Are you using an eSATA drive or just the stock internal drive?

    Have you tried a reboot?

    All that rain might have caused the signal to go out and come back on, but that is an extreme amout of recordings for the same time frame.
    Wow.

    I would recommend sending a report and then doing a Menu Restart.

    Using the standard internal drive. Sent the diagnostic report. The key # is 20121216-2183. Rebooted. Seems strange that it did this on both dvr's of course it seems strange that it did it at all.

    Did the Menu Restart help at all?

    Do you have your HRs on an UPS. If not, you should seriously consider it. You don't think you had a poweer problem, but it sure looks like a momentary drop and surge that did you in, especially if both boxes were affected.

    I had a similar issue, where I tried to record a show that was 30 minutes long, but the show was repeated every half hour on the channel. Although I tried to record just one show, it recorded for a straight day and a half before I caught it.

    Shows set for KUID were intact; shows not set for KUID were mostly gone. Ever since, I have been setting everything I can't afford to lose, to KUID.

    In my case, other than the mistake of continuing to record all night and day, my DVR was doing exactly what I told it to: keep these shows and don't keep those shows.

    And that raises the question: were your recordings set for KUID? And were programs deleted even though you still had plenty of space on the HDD?

    But in my case as well as in yours (especially since it did it on both DVRs) I think you can chalk this up to a programming typo from DTV. The only protection against their failure to do due diligence is KUID.

    I have had the same issue with a hr24/100 i now have no programs to manage no history and 100% of space available to record.
    Talked to tech service and they are looking into why this happened , i told them i received an update at 3:32am 12/19/2012 0x62c
    My hr24 is like it was they day the installer put it in. there are no user settings at all.
    Such a shame there is no back up.
