I guess I'm just really dense but I cant seem to figure out how to delete my old timers that have no upcoming recordings.

The only location I know of deleting a timer is from the Info screen with the update and delete buttons. I've never stumbled on any other locations of a delete button. The prioritizer doesn't bring up any info for items in the list that have no scheduled episodes when the info button is pressed. Like I said I'm probably just really dense but please help... 75% of my 50 timers are shows that aren't likely to come again... :(

Removing items with no upcoming episodes can be done by highlighting the selection and using the DASH DASH delete shortcut.

Was able to find it browsing through a couple days worth of posts while waiting for any replies. But the good news is I'm not as dense as I thought and the solution was non-intuitive.

Solution: From prioritizer press the - key twice. (key to the left of the 0 on the number pad).
Note: Would not work with my harmony remote with a default key setup, will need to modify button layouts.

Thanks for the reply, I was writing this at the same time. ;)

There are a lot of informative tips and tricks available in the Information Resources subforum. Milominderbinder2 has done an excellent job of organizing them into a PDF.
