EXACTLY!!! Finally, someone knows exactly what I've been going throuhh. This software is Really Really screwed up, its not a simple fix of deleting a few shows as others have been saying. I've been going through the same issues and The DVR thinks it's in the middle of recording shows from the To DO list, even though they broadcast in the near future. I almost collapsed when I read you got rid of 30 hours and it's still at 0% and can't record new shows. I was pissed that I got rid of 8 and still couldnt get past 0%! 30 is mindboggling and inexcusable on DirecTV's part!!!
I wish I never got this stupid software update, it messed up everything for me. I'm gonna call DirecTV as well, and I encourage everyone else that experienced this problem to contact them as well, so they can make this issue more urgent.
Any luck contacting them? I've had five calls with no resolution. They, as a last resort, want to reformat it, which will wipe out everything. That is not an option and I will demand a new receiver, while keeping the existing one, so I can watch everything I have recorded. Totally agree with you on everything. Seems as if everyone else on this thread is not having the issues that we are having. Keep me updated.
