    I wasn't sure how to label this, but I need to know if there is a way to tell if a show has already been watched once the whole way through. My wife and I don't always get to watch the shows at the same time and it would be nice if I could mark it in some way to tell her that I have seen it, then she can delete it after viewing. I know that I can undelete it if I have not, but it would be great if I could like it blue or have it add a dot so that I can see she has watched it ( or visa versa)

    Any thoughts ( or tips)

    There's a number of strategies you could use. I personally put a green dot on it to signify I've watched it, but my wife hasn't. (All my shows record with yellow dots.)

    Another strategy I've heard used is to position the show at exactly the 5 minutes mark (or some other of your choosing) after you finishing watching it. So if somebody starts to watch a show, and it was at the 5 minute mark, that means the spouse already watched it, and it's ready to delete once you watch it. If it was not at the 5 minute mark, then that means the spouse hasn't watched it yet, so when you finish watching it, you need to position it at the 5 minute mark.
