Entire recording library got wiped from my Contour overnight - why?
Over 100 programs disappeared overnight. Today, June 8, 2021, I was about to watch a saved show and saw ZERO items in my Saved view in Contour. Checked another of my Contour devices and the app - gone. Worse yet, the deleted items was empty so no opportunity to retrieve. I was at 84% of capacity last night which is why I set aside some time today to binge a few items. Called 3 times and 3 times the agent conveniently (intentionally perhaps?) dropped my connection. Guess the whole script about getting our number at the start to call us back is just empty words. On my final call, the agent did say that she had been getting a rise in calls about this issue today. So at least it wasn't just me. All I want is for this system to work as advertised. What's the point of promoting that we can use Contour to build a digital library if they are just going to dump it indiscriminately without notice.
We're on to you Cox. I saw a similar thread posted about this was already locked after just two hours.
Very unhappy with the indifference you demonstrate to your customers. First chance a new cable provider comes into town, you are gone.
New problem detected. After trying all of the recommended steps (reboot, system refresh, etc.) I tried starting over with recording a couple of shows. Went to bed and next day found they didn't record. Tried again, same issue. Then it dawned on my what is happening.
Cox systems are clearing out all recordings the next day. Recordings are only preserved on the day they were recorded.
To test this, I set up 9 different shows yesterday from 8 AM to 1 PM. That evening, I found all 9 and was able to watch, stop, rewind, all the things I normally would do. Woke up this morning and all 9 were removed. Not deleted, because that would at least allow be to recover them. Gone. As if, never recorded at all. I just see a message that I have no recordings yet.
Somebody somewhere in the massive Cox enterprise that I pay hundreds of dollars a year to is pushing buttons they aren't trained for. And you need to find a solution soon or consider cutting big refund checks.
