Recording show lock icon?

I recorded a football game a week ago and it shows as recorded but it won’t play, the loading icon just spins forever. Or gives me a black screen. Tonight, I noticed a “lock” icon in the title:

What does this lock icon mean?

I recorded two games on two previous weekends and those recorded just fine. Any idea what I did wrong this time? Or does this just happen with Tablo sometimes, that is, a recording fails?

Thanks!

The padlock means the recording was marked as “protected” which would prevent it from being automatically deleted if you were using some of the recording logic like “keep X recordings” of a show and it was an older recording.

It shouldn’t be directly related to your playback issue. You can get rid of the padlock by selecting Unprotect on that recording.
