    Ok, I just tried recording something, it's set to record on tv2 and I'm at tv2 with the corresponding remote. I went into my recordings and chose it, then chose delete, the exact message that comes up is This event is currently in use and cannot be deleted at this time. Please try again later.

    And by the way, I DID get it to stop recording by using what Bill said much earlier, I did menu 6 1 3 (not 6 1 1, as that's point dish) and it said "this will disrupt the recording", I answered ok and it stopped the recording. So guess that's the only way I can stop recording. Nuts.

    You can also just delete the timer while it's recording and that will stop it.

    That's a bit of overkill isn't it?

    Did you try the suggestion from post #15?
    A lot of this isn't making any sense.

    Actually that does not work, that's what brought me here to find answers. Apparently they don't want to make your life easy.

    Strangest thing I have heard of. Wish I used Dual mode on either of my 722(k). I have had a 622 and currently 2 722k's, only use single mode, and this is never a problem. Something strange with your system, hard to help remotely.

    I have 722k's, does it on the two I have. I've pretty much given up. Will wait patiently for my contract to end and go back to where I was.

    Yeah, go to the timer for the event and delete it... I figured that out a couple months ago... forgot what I did to my frustration over the past month or so, and just last night figured it out again.

    I've tried that won't delete while it's recording. And I don't want to completely delete the timer, just the recording at that particular time...

    I don't think in 4 years, I have ever heard of anybody having this issue.

    Leave it to me!!! I've tried everything that has been suggested and nothing works except to go into the menu and setup and then it tells me the recording will be disrupted and stops it. Just seems so strange to me. I wish I could figure out what's wrong with what I'm doing! It's pretty simple but keep getting messages...can't stop a recording in progress, etc.

    I've had that problem many times. I go to delete timer, then I can stop it and delete what was recorded, then reset the timer. A bit of a pain, but only way I found to stop a recording. Reason I want to do this (quite often) is if I am recording 2 shows and decide I'd rather record a different 2nd show, so I want to stop a particular show (may be TV1, may be TV2)... you'd think you could put it on the show you want to stop and hit "STOP"... no way.

    Yes, that's pretty much exactly what I'm trying to do. So glad that I'm not the only one with the problem, was starting to think I was the whole cause even after trying everything!

    You claim to have identical problems on both of your 722k's. Others have patiently explained to you that what you are seeing is not normal or typical. Why would you wait until your contract comes to an end? Get on the phone and explain exactly what you are seeing. If the Rep says that the behavior, thank him and call a second time. If you have defective receivers, Dish needs to replace them. Period.

    To sit back and accept improper behavior on the part of your rented gear. If you don't follow up it's your own darn fault - not Dish's.

    For this to happen on a 722k is weird. For this to happen on both 722k's something isn't passing the smell test.

    I agree completely. Why the OP would suggest that he/she will simply live with it is also strange. :grin:

    I don't see what his beef is with just watching it and deleting the recording if he has already seen it (i.e. live).
