I have a 722 which over the past few days will not record and I have lost all of the shows saved....also the Movies and More tab is greyed out and not accesible....Is the hard drive now shot? or is it some other problem?...I have reset and unplugged many times still with the same result...

Make sure the unit is not over heating. This will cause the HD to shut down.

Needs lots of air circulation.

Does the info guide read "no info available"?
I too have been having a problem with my timer settings. I have to do a check switch, then get the satellite signals, download my program guide info, then shut the unit off and back on again.

I have done this 3 times last week. Thank goodness for the locals in CA for a backup.

I have a VIP 722 DVR.
