    In my case I'm not sure it ever went away. The amount of lost recordings did diminish but IIRC I kept seeing the occasional missing program. Now it seems like I see the problem daily. Yeah, just the thought of trying to explain this problem to one of those nitwits upsets me. To assume I actually believed one of the CSRs is even more mind boggling. Let me say this one more time...I don't trust ANYTHING an ATT CSR will say.

    I don't know if this is any help but I had an issue of recorded shows just disappearing from my HR44. I still don't know the exact reason for the issue but I have an external HD and somehow some shows were recorded on the internal drive and some on the external.

    I'm guessing that somehow the power to my external drive was turned off sometimes (I choose to blame others in my family since I don't want to take the blame :)).

    So, it's a long-shot that this is your issue but if you have an external drive, check it out. Make sure you have good solid connections and reliable power to it!

    Good luck!

    Good guess, no way the internal drive could record anything with the external drive active. What I see almost every day is at least one ballgame missing from the 44's Playlist. Then I have to go to the menus and find it. It's always there, it just doesn't show in the Playlist. Once I start watching it, it shows up in the Playlist. You seem to have a much different problem.
