This request is over two years old. Originally I requested that we use the red button to erase a recording while playing it. At the time, as I recall, if you pressed on the red button while playing a recording you got a SWIM status. That's no longer the case as now you just get a "bonk". The SWIM status is now combined with internet connection status and displayed when the dash is pressed once. So the red key seems available. Why not use it to erase a recording while it is being played, just like it is used in conjunction with erasing an item on the List. Why not?
Ffwd, skip to end and then choose delete, or hit stop and choose delete. I think that's the best you will ever get for deleting while watching a recording.
And dash is now in use all over the place, but for those who haven't noticed yet, with the latest firmware update to the hr2x units,pressing red twice while in the playlist is now the same as pressing dash dash used to be to delete.
