(semi-OT) My DVR's misbehaving on me!

For the most part, I absolutely love the Toshiba DVR/DVD recorder that I 
bought last year. The Fybushes went away for 9 days last week, and I 
didn't have to stock 3 VCRs with blank tape and double-check a dozen 
programs before we left. It's a wonderful invention. Buuuutt.....

This Toshiba, or perhaps the TV Guide On-Screen software within it, 
seems to have a glitch when it comes to retaining a "regular" program 
for certain Fox prime-time shows. In particular, it seems to routinely 
lose its program for "24" every week...and it did it to me again while I 
was gone. (This happens to "House" frequently, too, but NEVER to any of 
the other non-Fox shows we record.)

So, two questions: 1 - anyone else had a similar experience? And 2 - 
anyone out there in BRI-land happen to still have the two-hour "24" 
season finale on tape/DVD/DVR hard drive, and willing to share?
