You're wrong. A TiVo group is not really a folder. It is just a list of recordings that match the criteria of the group. An individual recording can be listed in multiple groups (wishlist, series, HD). As noted above, you delete it, the only group it will now be listed in is "Recently Deleted".
One normally should not give technical advice based on an "opinion".
If the OP is still confused, temporarily turn off groups and you should see 16 instances of "The Mentalist", not 28.
