Whole-Home DVR service: How to delete a recorded program from a TV other than the one connected to your HD DVR?


With Whole-Home DVR service, you can delete recordings from any room on any TV connected to a receiver in your Whole-Home network.

Step 1

Press the LIST button on your remote to bring up the DVR playlist.

Step 2

Use the ARROW buttons to highlight the recorded program you want to delete.

Step 3

Press the RED button and select Delete Now when prompted.

Note: If the show you want to delete is playing in another room, you'll see a message saying, "Can't delete [program title] because it's playing in another room." You'll need to stop the playback in the room where it's playing before you can delete it. You'll also be unable to delete from a receiver other than your HD DVR if you've set your DVR playlist sharing to prohibit deletions from other rooms. Click here to see a demo on how to change your DVR playlist settings.
