Deleting content from DVR

I watch TV on my Mac. I record shows, watch them and delete them. Apparently that doesn't delete them off the X1 DVR. If I delete them off the DVR using the TV Remote on my iPad then they also delete from the Mac (presumably that is cloud stored). That's fine. What I need is to go the other way, in other words delete them on the Mac and that also deletes them from the DVR. How do I make that happen.

deleting on one deletes on the other. may take 5 to 30 minutes depending on server busy times.

Re: Deleting content from DVR

Deleting saved content on my Mac (stream) does not delete the content on my DVR. Deleting it on the DVR does delete it from the stream. I have hundreds of shows dating back months to manually delete off the DVR. That. old DVR content does not show on the Mac.

the home physical DVR has a hard drive. the Mac does not use/see that hard drive it only can see the cloud DVR.
