    Wife recorded Gen Hospital. Just went away by itself a week ago. Was stuck for 6 weeks. Not a dud. you could watch it but not delete.

    After having an undeletable recording for well over a year, I did some more research and finally found a way to delete it. I used "Clear Program Information & ToDo List" and that deleted it. I have no idea why, but it worked and nothing else was disturbed or lost.

    One instance I found that has undeletable recordings ("zombie shows") has the symptom that the zombie show appears on both the My Shows and Recently Deleted Recordings lists.

    Yes, on both lists at the same time, and it cannot be deleted from My Shows and it cannot be permanently deleted from Deleted.


    The solution I found was to go to the one that is on the Recently Deleted Recordings list and recover it. Then I go to the My Shows list and delete it.

    For my problems with zombie shows, that always works.



    fwiw, I informed TiVo one cause of those zombie shows, but as of the latest software update, I still see them occurring.

    I had a couple dozen of my recordings deleted and lost when I tried using that "feature". I documented it in another thread.

    Be careful with it.

    I get a show I can't delete every once in a while. Only way I've found to get rid of it was use the Tivo app on my iphone. Deletes it everytime.
