    On 2/27 my Tivo Roamio Basic recorded 2 blank Cnet recordings. I click delete but they won't go away. Never had this problem in the 10 years I've had Tivo. I called Tivo Support and they asked me if I had the new software update. At the time I had it for around a week or so. He said, yep, that's a problem, just be glad that's all the problems you've had. Offered no help, just said they will go away eventually...it's been over 4 weeks now and I still can't delete them. Any ideas on how to get them to go away???

    Have you rebooted it?

    I've had recordings (both podcasts and regular recordings) that have failed to go away.. and unfortunately rebooting does usually fix it.

    (unfortunately since rebooting should NEVER be necessary for ANY product)

    I've rebooted numerous times, deleted the entire OnePass, tried changing settings in OnePass...Can't think of anything else. The files won't play, saying there is no video to playback. They really aren't hurting anything by being there, but there should be some way of getting rid of them short of a Clear and Delete Everything...

    Yes, I had contacted support when it first happened and they asked if I had the new software update. When I said I did, they just said just be glad that all the problems you have, his exact words, and offered no fix, only that it will delete eventually. Its been five weeks now, and still can't delete the 2 duds.

    I've had an empty recording of a movie in My Programs for weeks (before 1P). Reboot doesn't get rid of it.

    I have one recording I cannot get rid of as well. Have an open service ticket with tivo. They tell me it will be corrected in the next software release this spring....

    Mine is still there, hoping 20.4.8 due next week will finally get rid of it.

    Do these show up on the App? Can you try and delete them that way? If you don't have a device with the app you can always try kmttg. For some reason, I have it in the back of my mind that using one of those worked for people in the past. I could be misremembering, but it probably doesn't hurt to try.

    Using kmttg to delete has worked for me in the past when I had one of these.

    Mine has been there over a month, and kmttg won't even delete it. I've tried every method dozens of times.

    I also have a cnet video that will not delete. I've learned to live with it but it's annoying as hell seeing it in the List. It's been there for several months and through at least one software update. Maybe two.

    Any hope of this ever being fixed? I am approaching the 1-year anniversary of my undeletable recording.

    After 1 year, I would think the question answers itself.
