Easy option to delete all DVRed shows?

Is there an easy way to delete all "Criminal Minds" shows that we have DVRed? We're looking for a quick alternative rather than going into each individual one or driving deep down into a menu. 

 

I'd love a way to highlight the show title (with X number of recorded episodes) and delete them all (if for example, we know we've seen them all or we no longer want them).

Thanks,

On the DVR/STB, in Recordings, if you highglight the show with multiple shows grouped, press the delete key on your remote.   It will ask you to confirm, and then BOOM.  All gone.

No, sorry. Each individual episode must be deleted.

If the episodes were all recorded as part of a series recording, you can do a "bucket delete" as follows:

 

1. Press the RECORDED TV button on your remote

 

2. Scroll over to Series on the menu

 

3. Scroll down to the series recording who's episodes you wish to delete

 

4. Select Erase recordings and Erase

Yes, you can, but through WRA, using the "Recorded Shows" tab. Very handy.

I think you can also do it through the online guide.

I don't understand your instructions.  I've deleted a series before using A-B-C buttons, but don't remember the proper sequence.

What is the DVR/STB? 

I don't get an option Delete the Series - only single episodes and it's driving me crazy!

Re-read the messages above.  The instructions work to delete multiple episodes in a series recording.

 

DVR = Digital Video Recorder

 

STB = Set Top Box
