    The PDF Hooper manual states:

    It's probably right in front of me but I can't find a delete option (only a save option.) If I can delete things I'm not interested in, it will make it a lot easier to find what I am interested in.

    Looks like ANOTHER error in the manual.

    The manual is not a finished "official" product. That caveat was noted in the "manual" thread by Scott.

    I would love to be able to delete PTAT items as well. I find it VERY difficult to determine exactly which items I have seen. The only thing I have come up with so far is that when you cursor over an item, if the message is "press > to resume", instead of "press > to watch", then you probably have seen it. Of course, this doesn't work for those items that you have only partially viewed and need to get back to at some point.

    Personally, I would like to be able to "hide" some items "permanently".

    I've found the best option is to save the series of all the PTAT shows I watch. Or create series timers from the guide for new episodes. That way every show I want to watch automatically appears in "my recordings". I don't have to worry about the show disappearing after the 8 day period if I still haven't watched it. And after I do watch it I can delete it from my recordings. By doing this I rarely ever have to look at the PTAT folder and it avoids the clutter.
