Humax recording. How do I delete?

Hello
I have a Humax digital recorder attached to my Samsung Smart TV. I only have one problem and it's bugging me! I'm fairly new to this system, so please bear with me.
When I have recorded and watched a programme, whether it be a one-off, or part of a series, I can't always delete it. The manual says to bring up the prog. to be deleted and press OPT+. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't give me that option. Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?

Hi and welcome to the forum.
Let me know whether this should be in the Freeview or the Freesat forum so that it can be moved from Remote Controls.

Press <Media> to select folder/programme - just as if you are going to play a programme.. press <OK> then it's on the menu of what you can do... just arrow down to 'Delete' and press <OK>.

There are other ways... one of which involves the <opt+> button

The easiest way I find is - having reached the end of watching the programme while it's still playing - to press <media> check the current playing programme is highlighted (it sometimes isn't) then press <OK> down arrow twice (to 'Delete') <OK>

NB Same process on the Freesat HDR as well as the Freeview one.

I've seen that. It can't delete a file that is currently being accessed (I think) so the delete option is greyed. I can't remember exactly what happened but I think if you try playing another file then return to the one you want to delete, it will be released.

I have a similar problem deleting files from the HDR via the web-if (custom firmware), it accepts the instruction but the file persists.

Hello nvingo. That doesn't work on my HDR. I've tried sneaking back at a later time. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't! I'm getting SO frustrated. Why should the machine cherrypick what it will delete and what it won't, and why. GRRRH!

Hi.
I know the FoxsatHDR won't allow a recording to be deleted if another recording is being background deleted nor can one delete a recording that's in progress; not sure about the HDRFoxT2...
