Question about Televison & Video
Have tried erasing various programs and none of them can be erased. I will appreciate any advice. I don't want to wipe the whole drive.
On my DVR there is a "protect" option that will prevent me from deleting a recording. You have to press the "protect" button again to unprotect it.Once unprotected you should be able to delete the recording.

SOURCE: Timers & recorded events erased
Ocassionally these receivers have been known to do this. It is not an issue that normally repeats itself however it is very frustrating. The upside is it ussuaaly will result in 150 hrs of record time. If you did not receive the150 hrs delete all timers and recording and reboot the system. You should have the 150 hrs once it comes back online. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

You can erase the contents of the drive or set the drive to overwrite when full. Erasing the drive is the equivalent of reformatting (you will not be able to recover the images easily).
To Erase/Format, enter the Menu system and select Hard Drive Setup (seventh line in the list). Press Enter, then go to HDD Format (fourth item in the list) and press Enter. Then enter your password (set up under System Setup) but the default password is 111111, if it is on. If you entered the correct password, the screen will flash HDD Formatted 3 times. Press Menu to exit the menu. (If the incorrect password was put in, Incorrect Password will flash.)
To overwrite, again go to Hard Drive Setup then select the first item, Drive Full. Press Enter to toggle Overwrite On or Off. You will be able to recover the images until they are overwritten.
I hope this helps.
