This has "happened to me" (my own stupid fault, careless button pressing). I don't know how to recover it. Now,anything I record, I automatically select "KEEP" so a recording cannot be erased with one careless button-press.
Compounded by a muti - type remote, I've managed to do it a few times. Unfortunately when it's gone....... )-: As Kazuya says, use the keep! Nevermind, if it was a Sky program it'll soon be on again!
If only my remote wasn't so tactile & ergonomic, if those program schedualers just had more insite, if my Tv wasn't as big & watchable.......oohh got to go!!!
I've done this too. Most recently on the second part of a two-parter (sea of souls) just as the wife and I were about to watch it having just watched the first part. I'd only had 2 glasses of wine too. I was not popular. Stupid machine.
I now use keep for all programs. Anyone use 'keep' with a pin number?
Although i dont have sky+ at the mo until my cheep ntl football season ticket is up in theory if the hard drive works like it should the deleted data would still be on the drive so if the drive was connected to a pc a recovery program might be able to get it back(lot of trouble though) and thats how you catch Gary Glitter
