Yeah, my wife added what she thought was a single episode coming up that wasn't being recorded in her series.  The problem is the title of the episode was slightly different, so it was being interpreted as a new series.  Instead, she got a whole series of episodes she didn't want.

 

Concerned she would be deleting the original series from future recordings, she deleted the episodes individually.  There were *many* of these episodes, like the DVR was trying to record old episodes from previous years.  Despite deleting all of these that constitute a different series, they still show up in the scheduled list as "Cancelled recording".

 

This series is not in the series priority list, so there is nothing to be deleted there.  If we attempt to try and add the series back in with the intention of then deleting the series, that doesn't work.  As soon as a "Cancelled recording" entry is in the future scheduled list, it cannot be undone other than to add it back into the schedule (as far as we can tell).

 

I can understand why the entries remain there if the series is a regularly scheduled one, as they serve as overrides.  But you would think if a series is not in the series priority list, any cancelled recording(s) should be removed from the future scheduled list.

They will drop off the listing once the time/date has passed for the cancelled asset recording.

does anyone know why? If I cancel a recording that means I don't want to see it in my list anymore. How do I get rid of them? It makes no sense that it still leaves it out there.
