What happens when my PVR storage space is full?

If all your recordings are protected and your PVR storage space is full, a pop-up will warn you and your PVR will stop recording. You can free up space by deleting old or unwanted recordings.

What happens if I don't protect my recorded programs?

If your recordings are not protected when less than 10% of disk space is remaining, your PVR will start deleting, starting with the oldest unprotected ones. To protect your recordings from being erased automatically:

  1. Press Recorded TV on your remote control.
  2. Select the recorded show that you want to protect.
  3. Navigate to Keep until and press OK.
    • Select either Keep until space needed to erase the program automatically when space is needed.
    • Select Keep until I erase to store the program until it is manually erased.
How many programs can I record at once?

You can watch or record up to 4 HD or SD shows at the same time.
