Donavan is the man! It turns out that my recording group was changed to
"". Literally, there is an option in the list that is blank. The other
two are "Default" and "All Programs". I've never changed it, I
promise! Anyway, I changed it to "All Programs" as before and all my
shows came back.
I'll consider changing the file system during my next OS upgrade.
Problem is you have to move your shows to another storage device in the
mean time, and I have a lot of shows I am trying to get around to watching.
Thanks to all who took the time to reply,
