Is there a quick way to empty "Recently Deleted"

I have 3 THR22 with 2TB drives. When "Recently Deleted" fills up (500 or 600) programs it slows down the units. Is there a quick way to empty the "Recently Deleted" folder?

Thanks

No - this is a common TiVo complaint/request.

Why do you think it "slows down" the DVR, though? I don't know why that should be the case.

How do you end up with 500+ items in recently deleted? I don't ever see more than 20 things in there.

I wish some one would come up with a hack for doing that. It would be great to put in some 3 digit code and the recently deleted list go empty. Maybe Tivo could set it up that after 30 days a file deletes itself from that list.

I'm guessing the OP has suggestions turned off. I have suggestions on, and never see more than a dozen or two items in recently deleted. The get nuked by suggestions. My drive is only 1Tb, but still.

I notice when I clean up the ToDo lists it is more responsive when the "recently deleted" is empty. Also I find the menus more responsive. BTW I do have suggestions turned on, and I keep that cleaned up, so a lot of stuff in the "recently deleted". I also notice less HD activity when the "recently deleted" is empty.

With all the other things that don't work the same on the THR22 as the DVR40/HDVR2's, it's minor. Right now I can't record VOD, and I've been told to wait for a software update, and Swivel Search only works on 2 out of 3 units. With all the time it took, and the extra cost, the THR22 is still not ready for primetime.

It's not a folder that contains anything, think of it as 'undelete'.

They are already deleted, there's no reason to do anything more with them.

I agree Bring out the pitchforks Its mostly a cosmetic bug, but it would be nice if it could be fixed. Maybe the problem is inherent to the forum software though, and Telltale has no control over fixing it?

It's not a bug, because it's not a problem. Recently Deleted is the equivalent to undelete. You don't need to do anything with it.

FWIW, I've noticed that my 'deleted' folder seems to hold programs for about two weeks before automatically removing them. (I have Suggestions disabled, and the 'available disk' stat stays around 80%.)

All of the programs show their date recorded. The date range in my folder today is July 11 to July 27, or 16 days. I'm pretty sure that tomorrow the shows from July 11 will have disappeared.

Two weeks of deletions varies from 130 to 160 programs, which I suppose is a rough guide to how many television programs I am recording, and then clearing. That means I watch an average of ten programs each day. I'm a cable news junkie, so more than half of those are CNN, MSNBC, or FoxNews (yes, I like to follow both sides of the 'news' spectrum).
