Purging HD DVR.

Message 1 of 6
(9,797 Views)
We got an HD DVR today and love it.  When I go into the settings screen and look at DVR status, it says it's 23% full.  We haven't recorded anything, just watched TV and reviewed some things, so why is it 23% already?  Is there a way to delete it all so it's at 0%?  I don't want a DVR that will record like 2 or 3 HD shows.  Any help is appreciated!! Thanks!!

Telco,

Would that also work for someone who has recordings but the wrong percentage, or would it wipe out their recordings? Thanks!

I'm not sure. You want to be the first and try? I only know that fixes the bug when you first get the box.
