Hi all.
I'm new to this forum and i hope that you will help me.
i'm trying to delete all of the recorded shows in a whole hog 3, some of them were deleted but the rest no, it is displaying can't delete directory '/home/gut-user/shows/new show' :access is denied.
is there a way to delete all of the shows?
maybe it's easier to make a factory reset to the console, but i can't find any information about that.
thanks a lot for your help.
cordially

    If you're trying to do a complete restore you might as well download the latest HOG III software from the Highend support page and do a clean install. This way you'll have all the current files to start fresh.

    Hope this helps....

    No Problem....To answer your question, a clean install will completly erase everything and install only the software needed to run the console. You'll be able you add your own shows then. Keep in mind that once you erase those shows there's no turning back.

    If you are trying to delete a show and you get an error saying that it is unable to delete, this fix will work just about everytime.

    -Load the offending show (Open it) and allow it to completely open.
    -Log off of the show.
    -Once you're back to the logon screen. Delete the show.

    Has this issue ever been resolved? I have a few shows on my H3 running 3.0.5 that won't delete all of a sudden.

    This has not been resolved, but will probably go away with a major change to the underlying Linux code in the near future.
