I recorded 'Rocky' on the DVR at 4/16/10. Once I saw it on the recorded movie list, I made sure to protect it, and it was fine until today, when it just suddenly disappeared. The event list is currently...

Hi, my name is Phillip Chang and I work with DISH Network's Technical Support Team.

We are sorry to hear that Rocky was not recorded like you had wanted it to be. If this were to ever happen again unplug the receiver for 10 seconds then plug it back in.

If the issue continues after this give us a call at out 24/7 technical support number for additional steps:

Can't record won't recognize blank

Not sure, but could be as simple as switching to a dvd-rw disc. Not all recorders recognize all formats.

I want to copy the programs recorded on my dvr 510.

According to engineering aspects of the 510 it is not designed to allow the recordings to be transferred. The only option you have is the option you mentioned or purchasing the 510 and having it incorporated into the new system so you can access them. I am sorry I did not have any better news for you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know.

Copying recorded footage from the DWD490RE without DirectTV Service.

Make sure the cables that used to run from the satellite are still connected even though u dont have directv, the unit will still download any software updates it needs. if the dish is no longer available, wait until the dvr is trying to aquire satellite info before u hit the menu button. it will allow u to watch saved recordings while it searches for a signal. Also you can plug a dvd recorder to the unit and transfer recordings to dvd

Black screen

80% or more of the issues with your DVR can be resolved by unplugging the box for 90 seconds and plugging it back in. There are some features that will be avilable immediately, and others that will take time to download. IE: all of the quide. I can't stress this enough - reboot your DVR occasionally - just like your computer its hard drive might need this.

I have also seen the hard drive inside this box appear bad when it was actually a problem with one recording. In my case it was a recording on the wrong channel, one that did not broadcast anything in my market. I was unable to access any of my recorded programs and when I tried to play the one in question, the screen went black. I deleted the program and all was well.
