    Anyone know of a shortcut to delete shows from list view without having to individually go into each one? I have 120 TiVo suggestions that I want to delete and having to go into each one is taking forever.

    Hit the clear button at the bottom left of the remote and it'll delete the show without even asking you if you're sure. I just did this yesterday to clear out over 40 shows. Of course, if you get a little button happy and accidentally delete something, it'll be in the Recently Deleted folder for you to recover it.

    Also if you are using the group view, you can delete a whole folder at once using the clear button. It will prompt you for confirmation in this case, however.

    My wife doesn't seem to like to delete anything. So about once or twice a month I use kmttg and go in and clean up things. Seems a lot faster that way.

    There's another very old thread in the main forum about someone whose wife won't delete recordings.

    You can delete shows w/kmttg? How so? I've missed that somehow.

    For Series 4 TiVos only once you enable "ipad communication" option under kmttg config->TiVos tab for a Series 4 unit (which enables the iPad remote tab) then you can select entries in Now Playing table and use keyboard "delete" button to delete the shows from the TiVo. FWIW you can also select an entry in table and use "space" bar to start playback of that show on your TiVo. (Make sure you are using recent/latest version of kmttg). The kmttg Wiki documentation on iPad remote has more information on the iPad protocol related capabilities as a whole.
