I have had the issue with Verizon coming into my DVR and deleting recordings. I have had entire Seasons deleted. When I took the time to record and go in and change recording permissions with reference to deleting due to space. I made sure I selected manually deleted and made them Top Priority. My recordings were still deleted. Now those shows are All pay-for-view. How do I Stop this?
What model DVR do you have?
When you look at DVR list of programs, do you see that the programs you want to save have a lock symbol next to the titles?
