Delete a recorded show while watching it?

Hi All,

I just switched to DirecTV and I'm loving it so far. I have the HD Genie setup.

If I'm watching a recorded show and decide to delete it, is there any way to do that without going to the List first ?

FF to the end then a popup will ask if you want to delete it.

LEFT is the BACK function, assuming you came from the playlist, pressing LEFT will take you back to the playlist, it will NOT delete

Exactly the OP question. "is there any way to do that without going to the List first" ?

what you suggest means going to the LIST.  and LEFT will not always take you to the list

Right but you offered as a solution which is not, pressing LEFT is the same as pressing LIST
