Hi there cdndude71,
Thanks for reaching out! I had never seen that icon myself, so it took a bit of looking in to. Turns out it means the recording is being protected from automatic deletion, which is a PVR setting you can change if you'd like. Is your hard drive on the PVR almost full?
I only have 25 hours of shows recorded, Lots of room on my PVR
Very strange! It might just be a setting for the recording itself. If you go in to the recording that is scheduled, under "change recording options" what "keep until" option do you have selected for it? Please see HD Guide PVR - Recording Overview for more info on recording settings.
I Have experienced this symbol. It showed up next to a show that did not record despite being set up as a series recording. When I asked what the symbol meant in another thread a couple of weeks ago, the shaw moderator didn't know and said there is no official listing of Guide symbols anywhere to look up what is meant. He also guessed it was indicative of a too-full memory but mine was less than half full.
BTW I have a 3510 pvr.
