DVR programs erased suddenly

I never allow my DVR to get more than 75% full. Today, when I turned on my TV, all of my recordings > 1 year old had been erased. They varied in age from 1-3 years. What happened? My DVR works fine, and it was probably around 50% full. It happened to multiple games and TV shows I had saved that I never wanted to erase. Is there a way to get them back?

I will also add that all of my shows are set to keep "until space is needed". I am certain I was not close to being 100% full.

Re: DVR programs erased suddenly

this happened to me yesterday when I recorded the MLB game, Yankees vs Nats. i came home from work, viewed the DVR options & the baseball game was not in the DVR que. vanished. as if i never recorded the game.

my settings are the same as yours and yesterday i think my DVR was at 72%. nowhere near the 100% capacity. 

very, very frustrating!
