    I've experienced this once on a Premiere streaming from another Premiere (both have the priority software updated).

    After completing a show, I try to delete the episode. It did not delete. My spouse also tried to delete the episode but it did not delete -- or at least appeared to not delete.

    I'll update this thread if I notice it happening on other streamed shows.

    Is the other TiVo playing that episode or is it paused on it? My wife has this habit of always pausing the TiVo on something before she turns it off. When she's using my TiVo she just picks some random show from the list. If I later try to watch that episode remotely, either from my other TiVo or from my Stream, it does not delete when I'm done even though it offers the delete option.

    That's a good question. I'll test it out. Like I said, I haven't run into this problem before, and I stream from Premier to Premiere quite a bit.

    I use MRS every day between my Premiere & Elite (both with updated software) and have not run into this problem. In fact even HDUI "Stop & Delete" option which didn't always work properly before now seems to work reliably every time for remote unit show delete.

    I think Dan has it exactly - this is how it works if a show is being played/paused on another TiVo on your network. It would be nice if TiVo could put up a warning window saying why the program can't be deleted, but that's just fit and finish polish.
