DVR Recordings now blank/won't play - DirecTV

I tried to switch to DirecTV, but they were unable to get a connection because of the trees where I live. They weren't supposed to cancel my UVerse until DirecTV was installed, but for some reason it was immediately shut off. I called and had UVerse turned back on (shouldn't have been interrupted) and they got it turned right back on. Now when I go to my DVR, all of the recordings show up, I just can't watch any of them at all. I don't see how they could still be there yet I can't watch them. Any help would be great on how to fix it since clearly I still have the recordings, and the mistake was clearly not on my part as to why the service was interrupted.

This question, "DVR Recordings now blank/won't play," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
