Recordings Not Saving or Working

I've Been Here Awhile



For a while now, I had set some programs to record. However, although they are shown in the grid and the Scheduled panel, none ended up being saved. While searching online, I found that performing a System Refresh would fix the issue and/or the connection to the Cloud Ignite save area. I did so and managed to get a couple of programs - they did record and appeared in the Recordings panel. Now, two weeks later, these saved recordings are gone. This does not appear to be a “running out of space” issue (since there is nothing there) nor is it a “delete if running out of space” for the same reason


How can I get this functionality back so that it works reliably?

Hello, @JGoudreault


Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!


Thank you for posting your concern to the community. I know how important it is to have your favourite shows recorded properly so you don't miss any episodes. 


  • When was the last time you can recall these programs recording properly?
  • Does this only happen on certain programs or channels?
  • Do you have more than 1 Ignite TV box? If yes, do you notice the recording issue on all of the boxes?
  • Are you able to view the recording via the Ignite TV app/website?
  • Can you confirm how the recordings were set? It is a series recording or a single episode?


We look forward to your response.

To your questions (not in order)
- Series were scheduled
- one single Ignite box (out of the 7 we have - all got Refreshed with the last System-wide one)
- Different days, times and channels
- those recordings that disappeared also cannot be found in the app either
- I checked day after recording and it was saved. 3 days after that and it was gone. Future recordings still appear under Scheduled

Should you need more information, please advise

Thank you
