@DIRECTVhelp - once again, a rep didn't actually read (or comprehend) a poster's question.  They didn't ask how to delete a recording, they asked how to delete a scheduled series recording.  So no prizes, but thank you for playing!

@JThrelkeld44 - the DVR feature unfortunately doesn't have a schedule manager feature.  So to delete the series schedule, you will need to go to the series page, where you will find a "Cancel Series Recording" button.  To get to that page, you can search for the series (using the search bar) or select the series on the DVR Recordings page, then select the header (series name).  Different devices' apps do the latter differently, so it may be simpler to use search.

Hi @JThrelkeld44, thanks for reaching us.

If you want to delete recordings, you just need to follow the next steps:

1. Go to DIRECTV STREAM and select My Library.
2. Check your recordings list for the title you want to remove.

Please try and let us know how it goes.

That wasn't the question. They want to know how to change a Series Recording to record ALL episodes instead of just NEW episodes.
