I've moved your question from Blue Ray / DVD to DVRs.
The particulars will depend on the make/model of your recorder (I'm assuming we're not talking about video tapes here) For a TiVo, go to the My Shows menu, using the remote, select a show (you may have to enter a folder first), and then use the 'Delete' button on the remote. You can usually also open an options menu for a given show that will have an option to delete it. Often, you can delete whole folders at once, if, say, you really don't need that 'Every Star Trek Episode Ever Marathon' anymore. You may also have a 'suggested shows' folder where the recorder has recorded stuff based on preference guesses. that's a good place to start since you likely care less about shows you didn't try to record in the first place.
Beyond that, the details will run wiht what sort of recorder you have.
I cannot help with your problem but unfortunately the same thing has just happened to me this morning. I woke up and every recording is apparently gone, but I cannot record because it says there is no room on the HDD and for me to delete titles. Can anyone help!?
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.
what you will need to do to correct this problem is delete the series recording. in your list (push list button) highlight the program you wish to delete, push select go to "rec. series" press select. and delete ALL push select... get "ok" message, select again. and reset receiver on front panel of receiver there is a door you can open, hit the red reset button and then setup your series record again by going into the guide and pressing record twice. this will fix the problem by deleting ALL of the series record and resetting, and resetting up series record
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.
Turn off the receiver, unplug the receiver, wait 30 seconds, plug it back in, and go through the setup again. This hard restart clears the memory and restarts the DVR software(clears any software glitches) This should fix this problem assuming that your satellite signal is good. Check that during the resetup. Most transponders will show between 70 to 100 signal strength. (Minimum is 70 for error free reception) Several transponders will show 0 as they are dead on the satellite, and not a receiver problem) If your satellite signal is in the 70's or less, you either live in Maine or you may need to realign the dish or something is blocking the signal like a tree or bush growing that is partially blocking the signal causing the signal to drop out(partial recordings)
TiVO also plans for other upcoming shows in total recording time. So if you 12 hours recorded, and another 20 or so hours scheduled in upcoming all as don't delete, then it won't allow additonal shows manually
