Recovering a deleted DVR show

I noticed my DVR was filling up with space so I was trying to delete shows that had been watched or that somehow had gotten double recordings. I fixed the double recordings issues.

In deleting some programs, I deleted something that I did not mean to and want to know if there is a way to recover it. I tried searching in this forum before I posted for a resolution. When I go to the DVR button on a TV in a bedroom and go down to configure & upgrade, there's no option for the recently deleted. I only see "skip" "replay" "change dar service" "DVR promotions." Do I have to do it from the main hub? Or am I completely out of luck with not being able to find it?

They are referring to the FiOS App.

You can also do it straight from the DVR.

From the DVR menu go to Configure and Upgrade.

Choose recent deletes and the select the program you want.
You will then have the option to recover it.

Keep in mind that you can only recover recently deleted shows.

The more shows you record and delete, the less time you have and disk space gets reused.

What model STB/DVR do you have?

Have you tried it from the DVR itself?

if you go to the app on your phone and go to TV/DVR/slide down till you see deleted and all of your show will be there that you deleted - click on the particular show and it will ask you if you want to retrieve it back you will click yes and it will go back for you to view

If you deleted them from recent deletes, they are permanently deleted, much like emptying your trash on an e-mail app, or emptying your recycle bin in Windows.
