    Maybe this is something i have not figured out yet or the way it is. When i finish watching a program, and say FF to the complete end, i am not prompted to delete or keep the episode right away. instead it basically pauses it self and i have to 30 sec skip or FF again to get the delete prompt

    left arrow (not rewind, the navigation pointer) will flip you right into that choice.

    That's what I do (left arrow) and it gives me the 'delete' choice every time.

    You can 1FF to the very end, or play to the very end.. But if you try to 2 or 3FF to the end, you'll get what you describe.. (at least that's what I see on my TivoHD).. Sometimes you basically get "stuck" at the end and can't rewind, either..

    To delete recordings, go to the Now Playing List and select the title or folder you wish to delete by pressing CLEAR on your remote. This is not the shortcut by any means but it is also another way to do the work. There are many tricks and tips that are very useful to manage your TiVo. Just visit myTiVO and look for trips and tricks. They have listed some shortcuts also.

    And compnurd, just FYI, you don't have to be all the way at the end to get that keep or delete prompt. Pressing 'left' anywhere in the last five minutes will bring it up.

    (Oh, and if you bring it up accidently either 'jump back' or 'rewind' will dismiss it without totally losing your place)

    If you hold your finger down on the skip button you will move to end of program. Or is this only working because I have 30 sec. skip enabled? Useful so you can quickly erase by moving left.
