Go to Watch Recordings in the frontend.  While in the "All Programs"
group (left column), hit Menu ('m') and "Add this group to the
playlist".  Then hit Info ('i'), "Playlist Options", "Delete this
playlist".  (I may have confused the Menu and Info keys, so try both
'til you find which it should be.)  This approach will mark all the
recording to allow re-recording.
