DVR program won't delete

DCH3416 Motorola DVR

 

Problem:  Program won't delete normally or through DVR Manager/Cleanup.  1st time I've ever had this happen.  It's a 4 hour program of Olympics that I recorded with 30 minutes extended time.  Any ideas how to get this to go away?

This happened to me as well. I unplugged the DVR, waited 30 seconds, plugged back in, and deleted it.

Re: DVR program won't delete

Sometimes you can clear up DVR problems such as this by unplugging the DVR power for a moment, then plugging it back in. You will temporarily lose program guide data, but it will be replenished over a few hours.
