How do you Re-Compress a list of recorded shows on the DVR?

I have a DVR with a bunch of recorded shows covering several Seasons.  When I first access the DVR recorded lists , all of the shows are compressed under their particular Season.

 

When I want to see the list of recorded shows, I just go to the Season I am interested and hit Select to see all of the Episodes under that Season, and that works fine.

 

But my question is, how do I cause the list of Episodes to be re-compressed under the Season heading.  I have over 30 episodes recorded under 7 different Seasons and it is real annoying to expand the season, looking for the shows I have watched -- and then not be able to re-compress the lists.  Surely there is a way to do this, isn't there.

Re: How do you Re-Compress a list of recorded shows on the DVR?

Yeah James, thanks for the tip(s) -- but I pretty much know how to do all of that stuff.

 

I am just looking for a solution to this one specific annoyance -- once I expand (Select) a Season in the DVR list of recorded programs, I can't get the Season list of Episodes re-compressed.

 

I didn't mention in my initial post, BUT some of the Seasons are already expanded -- and I don't want that either.  

 

More Details:  If the Season is not expanded, I can highlight the Season and then click on Select to see all of the recorded Episodes, but once the Season is expanded (see all Episodes), I can no longer "highlight" the Season line and Unselect it (i.e. compress all the Episodes).  Looking for something along these lines of operation.

Using our test account, I am not seeing a way to accomplish this.  The only option is to select "back" and then navigate to another program, but i see how that does not help with navigating between seasons of the same program.  I will pass along your feedback and suggestion for future guide updates.

OK James, thanks for checking -- and confirming my suspicions that there isn't a way to do this -- at least at the present -- but we can hope.
