Change order of programs to be deleted

Message 1 of 4

Here's a newbie question for you:

 

I have a large "queue" of recorded programs on my DVR.

 

When I was a customer at RCN, their DVR would allow me to re-arrange the priority of these recorded programs.  By doing this, I could put my favorite programs at the top, and my least favorite at the bottom.  When the DVR got full, it would start deleting from the bottom of the queue.

 

But with Verizon, it doesn't look like this is possible.  I can mark a program as "save until I delete".  But its not quite the same. 

 

Is there anyway I can change the order for when progams get deleted?

No other way other than the Save Until I Delete option which you found.

I'm not in front of my tv, but i'm pretty sure in the recording options there's one that says "save until space is needed".  Not sure if its under manage the series, or can be done for each individual episode.  Check under "Manage my recordings".  I've also changed the priority of my recordings,  and I think it will delete the lowest priority items first.

The Verizon DVR's only delete from oldest to newest as far as I know. The only exception to this would be to use the "keep until I delete". Other than that, I dont think there is any other method to use.

 

 

At least none that I've found yet.
