Thanks for the help this solved the issue on both units, FWIW on the Elite unit I tried to restore and recde a message indicating the show had already been removed ( it was still listed ),so I reset and was able to delete, on the Premier Unit I tried restore and play to end but wasn't able to delete,so went ahead and rebooted and following that was able to delete..
Appreciate your help.
