Can I Bulk Delete Recordings?

Hi,

I am a relatively new Tivo user and have just discovered a mass of recordings in My Shows>Suggestions. Is there any way to delete these quickly rather than one by one which will take for ever?

Regards,

Charlie Simpson

Yes just press the Clear button on the remote while the folder is highlighted and it will delete all inside. You can also turn off suggestions in the menus.

Hi unfortunately no, but you can turn off suggestions to limit the number of recordings that you don't want. Go to Home>help&settings >recordings >suggestions >off. Regards Micky

There is no need to delete the suggestions, they do not count towards the used space on your box and are automatically deleted as and when the space is required.

Hi Tavis75 I think he is making the point that he has to scroll through a lot of unwanted recordings to get to things he wants to watch, so doesn't want them in the first place.Regards Micky

The suggestions are all tucked away in the "Suggestions" folder at the bottom of "My Shows" as mentioned in the original post, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Re: Can I Bulk Delete Recordings?

You can press CLEAR multiple times on the list.  It does need to catchup occasionally but can be used to selectively delete multiple programmes fairly quickly.
