"Deleting everything. sit tight this could take up to an hour"
Tried to nuclear option to clear TIVO to get back to an acceptable system. The "hour" has now been going for 17 hours with still the above caption. I turned the TiVo box off after the 17 hours and restarted, it then just moved in to the same deleting mode, with the same caption. Looks as if this might go on for ever. Any suggestions how stop this and try and get back to normal.
