DVR program won't delete

DCH3416 Motorola DVR


Problem:  Program won't delete normally or through DVR Manager/Cleanup.  1st time I've ever had this happen.  It's a 4 hour program of Olympics that I recorded with 30 minutes extended time.  Any ideas how to get this to go away?

Sometimes you can clear up DVR problems such as this by unplugging the DVR power for a moment, then plugging it back in. You will temporarily lose program guide data, but it will be replenished over a few hours.

This happened to me as well. I unplugged the DVR, waited 30 seconds, plugged back in, and deleted it.
