Add the shows you want to delete to a playlist and delete all of them
with 1 delete command. The hint here is that you can add all of the
programs in a group to a playlist by selecting the group on the left
of the Watch Recordings screen (hit M(enu) then Add This Group to
Playlist). Then M(enu) again and choose Playlist Options. Delete on
the bottom will delete everything in your playlist.
If recordings for something like The Daily Show build up I add the
whole group to a playlist, then remove from the playlist the last
couple and then delete the rest. I don't typically delete programs
from mythweb so I don't know if there's something similar there.
