Somehow I, or the DVR, has choose to mark a number of recordings that I am making on a daily basis as locked. I am not recording a locked channel. But the DVR says they are locked. Any idea how to remove the lock, other than a case by case basis?

Also how do you tell the DVR to stop recording something you have set up as a daily recording, on a permanent basis?

Big67red,
Other members have run into this issue, and I've seen the work-around posted. I don't think it's ever been established the cause. Have a look at this thread:

If you're asking how to unprotect a block of recordings, from the My Recordings menu, select Edit and mark each one then select Unprotect.
