I had recorded Celine Dionne's , A New Day, about 3 years ago. Every now and then I would watch it. I keep from 65 to 90 percent FREE space on my drive. Today my recording is gone. I checked the History and it is not in there at all. I did a Menu, Reset and checked again. It is just gone. I have 2 or 3 more that are about that old and they are still in the Playlist. I thought they would stay if I kept plenty of Free space. It appears that was not correct. New Subject: I do love the DVR. Saturday I was going to watch the Sprint Cup Race. I set it to record. Then I watched an hour long recording I had from a couple of days ago. Switched to the race and watched it ( fast forward 2 on all commercials ) until I caught up to live TV. Watched another hour long show I had recorded and then went back to the race. By the time I caught up with live TV the race only had a few more laps to go. In 4 hours I watched 6 hours of programming, skipped 2 hours of commercials. Holey Moley. One of the things I noticed is that I left the recording of the race once without pausing or stopping it first. To my surprise I did not have to back up the recording. It was right where I left it.
