Can't delete & remove a recorded show.

One of the Weakest Link shows we recorded is stuck on 'recording'.  All our efforts to delete it, stop recording it, cancel series recording have failed.  Do we need to reboot the system or should we do something else?

DVR/Receiver model number?

You can reset it using the red reset button. Location depends on the model.

Hi joadams422. Getting content you removed on your recordings is not usual. Let's get your programming to the right place. We will contact you for personalized assistance.
