Most of my records on my Gateway have a orange exclamation mark beside them, but some have a green dot. What is the meaning of the green and orange dots.
Good afternoon webguy
Each colour icon does indicate something different:
Red: The show is recording
Blue: The show is scheduled to be recorded
Yellow: The show is recorded and may be deleted if space is needed.
Green: The show must be deleted manually
You can see further information about this any other features in the Gateway Manual. Search "icons" to see the information we have just given.
Hope that helps. Let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Question to follow up on this initial thread - I have the same issue (a yellow exclamation mark on the recorded show), however I am not sure what is meant by "may be deleted if more space is needed". I just had the Gateway system set up earlier today and have also just added on a Shaw Expander (so at 0% capacity + the expander I have a ridiculous amount of available space right now - more than I ever will again!) So not sure why this icon is appearing on the first recording I've ever done. Does this sound typical??
Yep, that's normal. The icons are not a representation of the hard drive status, but of the program's properties.
In other words, "the show is recorded and may be deleted if space is needed" is not the same as "the hard drive space is full and may delete this show if needed".
That make sense?
Yes, thanks Andrew...so really all programs will show that icon once they are fully recorded? Thanks...new tool for me so just getting used to it from the last pvr! Thanks for the quick response. - nadia
That's correct! If you change the recording settings under "Save Until..." to "I delete", you'll see the green icon beside a recording instead.
The green box is probably showing up if you were using the mobile app and didn't change the default settings to "keep until space is needed" The default to right now within the app is "keep until I delete".
