If the recorded programs are not in Media, Watch Recordings (or 
something like that), you might check your settings for how long it 
keeps recordings before deleting them.  The first few shows I recorded 
seemed to get deleted before I ever watched them.  It was set for one day. 

I don't know if that's happening to you, but you might check that if you 
can't find them.  I set mine to NOT delete recordings, just LiveTV.  I 
delete recordings when I specifically don't want them anymore.
