DVR Recordings disappeared from my DVR listing

DVR Recordings disappeared from my DVR listing

Message 1 of 2

There was an apparent Verizon Fios update yesterday in that my box shut off & rebooted while I was watching TV.  After the reboot, I realized that all of my recordings which were on the hard drive of my box had disappeared.  The recordings saved to my external drive were fine however. 


I have completed an "In Home Agent" reboot, an "Auto-fix DVR Issue" check (and subsequent reboot) and done a "Soft Reboot" by shutting the box off, unplugging the cord, waiting 30 seconds and restarting the box. 


Nothing has worked.  


Is there anything else I can do? Or am I to resign myself to the fact that the recordings from my box hard drive lost forever?  I'd also like to know how I explain the lost movies to my 2 year old who keeps asking to watch "Finding Nemo" and "Cars" which were lost.


Any help would be appreciated.
