722K, Software L690. and in reply to another response, i do not use groups or folders)What software version is on your ViP722 (and be sure to say if it happens to be a ViP722K)?
If you did delete them, they are gone. That means that no amount of pleading, reasoning, griping or re-asking the question is going to get them back.
I really do believe Dish should redesign the prompts to EDIT the entire HDD and make it more clear that we are about to erase EVERY recording on the HDD.
Only works if you LOCK the receiver.Suggestion...if you have ANY recordings you don't want to risk losing then select PROTECT for them. Then if you ever accidentally (or intentionally) attempt to delete recordings by hitting SELECT ALL, you will immediately get a prompt for a password. This is because you've selected one or more protected recordings.
Only works if you LOCK the receiver.
I would think a simple workaround would be instead of the warning prompt asking "Do you really want to delete these DVR events?" It should ask something like "Do you really want to delete these ___ DVR events? e.g. "Do you really want to delete these 230 DVR events?" "WHAT!?!? No!!!"
Not sure they could on that now. To many other units have similar features, I think.Yes, SOMETHING, like in bold RED letters and a SECOND or THIRD prompt to make it cumbersome to do. Then people would get the heads up and think, "Hey, this aint the usual steps."
As much as Dish DVR's are better, I really do LOVE the Restore feature on the TiVo and had to use it TWO times this WEEK ALONE! Of course, if Dish tried to design such a feature, TiVo would probably SUE.
Jim5506 said:Tivo runs differertly that Dish DVR. TiVo fills the entire drive shortly after you start it with video similar to what you are alreadt scheduling, then if anything is deleted it is just marked as area of the drive that is recordable. Dish on the other hand actually frees up real disk space when a program is deleted. Your TiVO drive is always full, it just has programs marked as "record-over-able".
