Over the last few days, I have tried to record program via the guide, pressing the record button. Later, when I want to watch it and go to My Playlist, the program is listed but when I go to play it, it displays the delete/do not delete choices and I can't play the program.

Has this happened to anyone else and what do I do about it?

Thanks, Gary

It has happened to a lot of people.

Reboot your system.

Happened to me with the OxFA download on 11/22. Just about everything I had in my list was "delete only". I did a full format and reboot. You lose everything - Scheduled stuff, your "Season Pass" stuff... It'll re-format your system but I will say that mine has never run smooter and seems to have a bit more giddyup - Until this next update coming out.

Hi, thanks for the almost instant replies from you and Coffey77. I asume I do that by pressing the button on the front of the unit.

Since I will lose what I have, I'll wait until I watch those saved programs before rebooting. Probably by then, I'll have the newest update.

Thanks again, Gary

Yes, just hit the button on the front.

And no, you won't lose any programs that you have....
THAT RECORDED CORRECTLY....

Those that are instantly comming up with Keep/Delete messages, are corrupted, and those will disappear when you reboot.

Ah, even better. I must say that I am happy I did the whole re-format thing - aside from losing eveything... It seems that everything's running a bit smoother and faster after it. Maybe wishful thinking - kinda like a sugar pill/placebo...:)

Since Oxfa have had intermittent problem of recorded programs showing only delete-dont delete at bottom. When this happens all recorded shows are gone for that day. I am connected only with HDMI to Visio P50. The other major problem is having to reset due to white screen flashing and no picture after TV turned on for first time after coming home from work. In the last 3 weeks approx 10 resets needed. I am now trying component connections to see if any improvement.

I do not think that is necessarily true. Others and myself have been able to play recordings that have this unplayable bug. In my situation I just kept trying to play them in the worst case situation it took 4 attempts. I only had this happen twice. There may be a situation where this happens and it did not record correctly but I never had experienced that situation with the same exact symptoms you outline. I guess if you try to play it 8 to 12 times and it just wont go then I would likely give up and just delete it or reboot. I never rebooted because of this issue but I only had it happen twice.
