    This was a new one for me...I wasn't able to delete a news show I watch everyday. Here what I tried:

    Clear button from the My Shows screen

    Delete button from the show (screen) itself

    Re-start the show; skip to the end; choose delete at the end of the recording

    Tried deleting from the TiVo app

    Nothing worked. The show is still there with a solid blue circle.

    I tried deleting other "Solid blue circle" shows...no problem.

    Not really that worried. I am curious to see what happens when it records tonight....

    Power cycle your TiVo. If it's still there, delete it.

    I've had this happen before, and a reboot fixed it. Not sure what caused it.

    Thanks!
    I chose to power cycle, which I take it to mean unplug..let it sit for a minute...and then plug back in.
    That did the trick. The show was already deleted when it rebooted.
    Curious: Would a restart have accomplished the same thing?

    It's a rare timing bug on button presses, I've seen it too maybe twice. Reboot takes care of it.
