    Last weeks NYPD Blue was on Tivo I went to watch it tonight and it was gone. I had save it untill I deleted it, and there was pleant of Recorder room, so I'm aty somewhat of a loss. My Wife Never touches it so I know she did'nt delete. Does anyone have a copy they could send me?

    Go to your "To Do List" then "View Recorder History". That should tell you what happened to it.

    I had the same horrific occurance happen to me with a new episode of Buffy about 2 months back. It is a faith shaking experiance because we put SO much trust in our mighty TiVo's.

    I found the reason behind my TiVo's benidect arnold impersoniation. I had buffy set to "save until I delete", but I _ALSO_ had "keep at most 5 episodes" set in my season pass. This resulted in TiVo saying "hey, you have 5 Buffies stored in now showing, and since I can't delete them, the only way to keep at most 5 is to NOT record the new episode". TiVo realized that this can be a surprize and the newwer versions of the software (2.5+) all warn you when you create a season pass that this could happen. Of course I created my season pass with v1.3 so I never got the warning.

    If you have a bunch of old episodes still saved on your Tivo, that might explain what you saw.

    Hope that helps,

    Will
