Is there an easy way to delete a show. When I go to the list and select a show it displays all the shows it has recorded for that series. Is there a way to delete it by highlighting it? At this moment I have to select the show and select delete. I wondered if there was another button to delete like the red or yellow or something.

Highlight it and press dash dash. Be careful because you can delete the folder.

When you have it highlighted:

Hit the DASH button twice "DASH" "DASH" (bottom left corner of your remote).

You can also delete an ENTIRE group, highlight the GROUP and hit "DASH" "DASH"

You can also BULK delete.... when in My Playlist... hit MENU->Mark and Delete

Just put it where the "+" is. You will use it all the time. (Don't understand why it's not in the initial setup for the harmony. Just one of those unsolved mysteries of life, I guess.)

The dash is also used for entering OTA channels (9-1, 9-2) and for confirmations in other parts of the system (such as doing a menu reset).

FYI the dash is also used for OTA channel input (like 2-1) so it definitely deserves a place on your Harmony.
