I _think_ the only way to achieve this through the MythTV interface is
to enter mythtv-setup and then choose to delete all video sources on
the video sources page. Deleting a single videosource does not appear
to do this - it just removes the videosource from the database
(someone please correct me if I am wrong here). However, if you want
to keep your videosources intact, this isn't a solution.

If you want to keep your video sources but delete all program listing
information, the only way to achieve this is to edit the database
directly - remember this is more risky, and you really need to remove
the information from all the associated program listing tables
(program, credits, programrating, programgenres, etc).
