To think Sky Plus Planner should ask if you are sure you want to delete?

Just deleted 'Robson Green's Extreme Fishing'. DH and the DC are going to be really cross.
It should say are you sure before it does it. sad

Sparklingbrook Tue 26-Feb-13 14:52:41

Ooh yes Thing. Good Luck Charlie alone should be enough to break it. grin

I do this all the time to DH's stuff by accident. I am so so so so so so happy that geekster shared that tip. If I never learn anything else on MN I will have learnt how to save my marriage from the "accidental delete of the last episode in the series" trick I keep pulling. We have the Sky HD box and that option on planner does exist grin

cheesebaby Tue 26-Feb-13 15:25:32

Bunny the youview box has just had an update which means you can go into the settings and select the option to 'confirm delete'. This box is definitely a work in progress! hmm

Are you sure it was an accident?
<stern>
I may have often done this but now DH and DCs have found the undelete page

Sparklingbrook Tue 26-Feb-13 15:45:16

Yes it was an accident much as I hate RG secret. grin

We are down to 14%. hmm Someone needs to delete something though.

I haven't posted on MN in a while but I had to post to say THANK YOU to the poster on this thread who told me how to restore deleted items from my planner. I had spectacularly managed to delete the first episode of The Following and have had to endure hearing how brilliant it is from absolutely everyone. thank you!

Sparklingbrook Wed 27-Feb-13 07:35:14

envy from everyone getting the benefit of my question, and me realising our Sky Box is OLD. grin

ThingummyBob Wed 27-Feb-13 09:27:29

14% you say Sparkling? I have to poke the dcs to remove their shit programmes as mine seems to be permanently at 2% shock

Re the new box envy grin, try calling sky and telling them you are leaving as the box is knanckered and you can't afford a new one... I didn't pay for my upgraded box last year wink

This is the exact reason there is the option to "KEEP" - if you press the blue to keep it you cant delete without using the pin number!!

My Ds puts all his stuff on keep!! I usually have a mad deleting spree when he is in bed and then act all vague if he notices.

Sparklingbrook Wed 27-Feb-13 09:37:44

When the 'to record this programme you need to choose one to delete' comes up I run around looking like this. grin

Neeko Fri 17-May-13 20:08:59

Another thanks from me. You just saved the doc's favourite Peter Pan.

MrsPoglesWood Fri 17-May-13 20:27:17

Wow! Thanks Geekster I knew nothing of the 'deleted' section. We've got it! Well pleased!

Euphemia Fri 17-May-13 20:43:39

I want to be able to create folders in Planner, so that I don't have to search for my Mad Men high-quality dramas amongst DH's umpteen movies.

I search under the heading Entertainment, which narrows it down, but it's still a bit shoddy.

Euphemia Fri 17-May-13 20:45:28

Sparkling DH goes into meltdown when that message comes up! grin He switches everything off and leaves the room, hoping he's got away with it. smile

Meerkatwhiskers Fri 17-May-13 21:43:09

Thanks for letting me know about the deleted folder. Me DH will be very happy. He is the one that accidently deletes stuff not me lol. And gets angry as it's always his stuff lol.

Meerkatwhiskers Fri 17-May-13 21:43:57

My not me. Although i am part eastender so me would actually work lol

Sparklingbrook Fri 17-May-13 21:46:57

My DH does that Euphemia. He can't make the decision. grin I just panic.

Tubemole1 Fri 17-May-13 23:27:38

Thanks geekster for the tip. Accidentally deleted last two EPs of True Blood the other day. I don't care for it but my husband just sat on the sofa, his eyebrow twitching with rage. So, cheers, no legal fees for the foreseeable future.

minibmw2010 Sat 18-May-13 08:08:00

It's worse in our house. If we get below 5% the flipping box deletes stuff itself with no input from us!

limitedperiodonly Sat 18-May-13 09:50:16

I do the Scream face when I get the message about having to choose which programme to delete because I'm trying to record three programmes at once and the system can't cope.

That might be because I've got an old box too. wink

<sniggers childishly at Robson Green's Extreme Fisting and other euphemisms>

we have had sky for years and I never knew we had a deleted items folder! Am going through it now in case there is something we need to save

although it must only save them for a short while in the deleted folder as there wasnt that much there

up to 62%

mikkii Sat 18-May-13 10:02:13

We have a terabyte virgin box and it hovers around 8% free due to the kids recording crap (10 episodes of Peppa pig a day?) and DH hoarding 22 episodes of countryfile a whole series of coast and other wired stuff.

I just clear the kids stuff on a daily basis and purge the box when I go away. Virgin has a recently deleted folder beneath the other folders.

limitedperiodonly Sat 18-May-13 10:08:03

Who watches Countryfile in the first place, let alone records it and saves it?

mikkii LTB. No one will blame you.
