It's permanently deleted. You can always check to see if the episode is on VOD though.

I miss that feature from my old TiVo. Un-delete is rarely needed, but when it is, it's really nice to have it!

Yes, I have used the undelete feature on my Verizon DVR a couple times in the past two years. Nice to have!  :grin:

That's really helpful, but you're just bored I guess.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I would assume there is a reason why the receivers asks you twice before the show is deleted

Delete can be such an automatic process.  Yes, I know it asks you to confirm, but I have made a mistake.  It would be nice to have this feature.

Its funny, a lot of us think the "recycle bin" idea for deleted programs would be awesome.  But then people talking about the Comcast X1 DVR are complaining that they have to "delete twice" because deleted programs go into a deleted area.

 

I guess you can't please everyone.

That is actually easy to handle but I agree you still wont please everyone. All you do is make the recycle bin available space.  The programs in there would not be counted in the space used calculation and when you need the space they would get auto deleted just like it does now for a full disk

I agree.

 

Some people though freak out when they see it and "think" it's wasting valuable space.  In reality stuff in the "recycle bin" is first to go when space is needed.

 

I think a "recycle bin" folder at the very bottom of the playlist would be a nice feature for DirecTV.  Also they could put in an option to disable it for those who don't care, or the same types of people who freak out about it who post on the Comcast X1 DVR threads at other sites.

TiVo owners also complain about "delete twice", or ask how to remove everything from the "recycle bin". The usual joke response is that they want to remove evidence of porn they watched.

I have used the undelete feature on TiVos and would like to see it on DirecTV DVRs. Perhaps it could be made an option.

Dish recently added a deleted recordings folder to the Hopper software. The deleted recordings stay in the folder for 2 days and then go away permanently. It was about time - and solely done in software.

I used undelete three times yesterday on my non-DirecTV DVR. When the feature was added I thought I'd never use it. Kind of like when I first got a DVR ... I thought I might get some use out of it but didn't realize how much I would rely on DVR viewing over live viewing.

I understand that the "space" taken by deleted programs can be confusing ... but the programs roll out of the deleted programs without a second click (I'm not sure when).

The "delete all porn" issue has been around for years ... and as long as there is a timer history (mine goes back a week) there is already a record of what has been recorded. The difference would be the restore - if you wanted something gone from the DVR and not able to be restored an undelete feature could be a bug.
