Umm, so to what button did you assign that macro? :)

FWIW, I don't think you need to program a macro for delete; you can
just program the "D" keystroke and get the same effect (more flexibly,
because you can also hit "D" in the "Watch Recordings" screen, whereas
I think your macro only applies when you're actually watching
something, and can't be used in the "Watch Recordings" screen).

So yeah, this was more a 15-2116-specific question, since it doesn't
have a WAF-fy "Clear" or "Delete" button anywhere like the TiVo
