    Hi Suzanne, Sorry but Unfortunately there is no way to retrieve your recordings. Once deleted they are gone. To get them back you will have to wait until they air again and re-récord.

    No sorry, try to do a smart search for the program and if it plays again, set it to record

    Sorry, but no, there is no way to retrieve them. You can do a smart search as "Tech" suggessted and re-record them. Are you set up with the Cinema Connection Kit with DTV? If so, you can do a search and watch some previously aired shows of some programming and also some movies. Some may cost a little and some are free. If you do not have this, call DTV at 1-800-531-5000 and ask about the kit. You may even be eligible for a free kit upgrade.
