    How do I delete the recorded show I am watching?

    On my FiOS DVR this is easy, play stop delete.
    On Roamio this is difficult, play tivo recordings find what I was watching delete.

    Surely there must be an easier way?

    I use the left 'arrow' next to the Select on the upper portion of the control which brings up the menu, arrow down to Delete, select.

    Ive been having an issue with Amazon tv shows, havent recorded much OTA so not sure if its a bug there yet. If Im not near the end of a program, and use the arrow back, the show I was watching keeps playing in the window in the corner, I end up having to use live tv to get the tv show to stop playing.

    Also, if you let the show you're watching reach the end of the recording, a screen pops up that gives you the option to keep or delete as well.

    That is normal behavior if you use the preview window.

    Just hit pause to stop progression or slow to close the window.

    Related to this, that maybe people don't know - using left will also return you to the last place you were in the menus, as opposed to the tivo button which takes you back to the top menu. Can be handy for many things.

    FYI you have to be within 5 minutes of the end of the program for it to offer the delete option. So if the show ends early hold down the skip button for a second to jump to the end and then press left or TiVo and it should present you with the delete option even if you're using the preview window.
