    I just encountered an odd problem with my HD Tivo. The last few days it records programs in their entirety as requested, but when complete the red dot doesn't go away- it stays red as though it's continuing to record. After viewing the program, I try and erase the program but it's still there. Now my hard drive is getting clogged with programs that I want to delete, but I can't figure out how to get rid of them.

    Anyone seen this before? Any idea how to get rid of the unwanted programs? :confused:

    Have you tried rebooting the unit? I've had that happen before and the reboot fixed it.

    Never seen this before, but the first thing I would try is the universal fix. Reboot.

    I had this happen about a year ago, rebooted, and it was fixed!

    So the concensus is to reboot- thanks for all your help.

    OK, so I'm going to sound very ignorent here- how do I reboot? Just unplug it for awhile? Or do I need to enter in some sort of code? I did a search on "how to reboot" and couldn't find anything, so it must be pretty simple. :eek:

    Yank the plug or do it from the menu. Messages and Setup - Restart or Reset System

    I would definitely unplug the unit for at least 15 minutes to reboot it. I had a guide data problem and when I rebooted from the menu without unplugging it didn't fix the problem. Unplugging it for a few minutes fixed my problem.
