DVR says memory is full when all programs previously recorded have been deleted

When I try to record and save a show, the DVR says that the memory is full, but I had deleted all programs in the memory. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: Humax Tivo will not record to DVD

After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!

SOURCE: Dish Network DVR 625 Problem with playback of recorded shows

It sounds as though the hard drive is about to go south on you soon and the receiver is going to need to be replaced however, in the interim you can change the options of the recordings and make it a default so that the recording continues past the end of the show. It is possible that extending this time will allow you to view the portion you want before it skips to the end. In order to do this press the guide button and select a program in the future. On the create timer screen select the option icon. You will now be at the timer options screen you can extend the time the recording will last after the end of the show and when it will begin recording prior to the show. I would also set this as your systems default so that it performs the same way regardless of what you are recording. According to the latest known receiver issues this is not identified as it is a common indication that the hard drive has an error internally. If this works I suggest that you have a replacement sent to you so that you do not lose the use of your DVR un-expectantly.Remember to watch all recorded events prior to replacement as you will lose that info when the receiver is swapped. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

As the R15 DVR recievers have been updated, you should be able to hook them up by using the usb port in the front bottom left.

Is there anyway to get recorded shows back that were accidently deleted?


Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. There is unfortunately not any way to get recorded shows that have been accidentally deleted. What you can do for next time is connect an external hard drive to your receiver. The external hard drive will need to be a minimum size of 50gb and maximum size of 2tb for DVR receivers and minimum 50gb and maximum 1tb for non DVR receivers. This will save all recorded shows in case anything should happen to your DVR receiver. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns feel free to email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com.

We keep losing shows! They record just fine, but then a few have disappeared, even when protected. Any ideas where they might be, and/or how to keep this from happening?


Check to see how full you DVR is. This happened to us and our DVR was filled up. When that happens the DVR starts to delete stuff, even protected things. It will first delete non-protected shows and then if there are none left to delete and room is still needed, it will delete other shows. Not sure, or can't remember how it prioritizes the deletion but it happens.
Check how full you DVR is and that may be where your problem lies.

I just deleted (remotely from my mac) all the files in Folder A of my Olympus DS -40, b/c I'd gotten a memory full message. Even though it shows no files in Folder A, it still says memory full.


I found the answer on this site: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_faqs.asp?id=1126#22 I held down the menu button--got to the sub menu and restored it to the original default setting. It cleared everything and now I can record tons again. Note for future--don't delete on your mac--only delete the files on your dvr to save you the trouble of having to do this.

Dvr is programmed but at times "chooses" not to record show and other times it does record


Be sure that a DVR timer is set to fire, instead of an auto tune. Also if it is a series then make sure you select new episodes, your dvr will not recor a program if it has already recorded the same program once, ( re run) you can also check your scehdule in your dvr to check if timer has been deleted or modified.

Dvd recorder can't read disc it previously read


Take the Disc out and put it aside. You must clean the Laser Eye, and clean dust and other matter from inside your recorder. Clean Eye with rubbibg alcohol and q-tip. A regular CD/DVD cleaner disc will not work. After cleaning, reinsert your Disc and Finalize it.

Dvr won't record


Unfortunately there will be no fix for this, at one point your receiver might have asked you to delete all files when you tuned it on when it deleted your files it reformatted the hard drive incorrectly so you will need to contact dish network for replacment. if its leased it can be replaced at no charge maybe a shipping charge. If its purchased you can get dhpp warranty for 5.99 a month and that will cover replacement or repair.

Program prompting to be deleted before it was finished


Sounds like your DVR is running out of space try to free up some space on the DVR.Also there is a little bit of space at the end of the show after it prompts you to delete the show not much though.If you have plenty of space on the DVR simply increase the time it records by 3 minutes.that should take care of your problem.
