Dish Hopper DVR
I don't see a "create folder" option in my folder list anymore.
Is there a limit to the number of folders I can create?
Is there a way to change the name of an existing folder?

    Accepted answer

    1) In the Event Timer screen (when creating/editing a Series Timer): Folder drop down > Create Folder

    2) In the DVR screen: Select Edit All > Select the recordings you want to place in a folder > Edit Action (Green Hot Key) > Add to Folder > Create New Folder.

    There can be a maximum of 5 custom folders.

      You should be able to ---
      Press the DVR button to show "My Recordings"
      Press the green button and choose "My Folders"
      Find the shows you want to move (most likely in the "No Folder" folder)
      Press the blue button to "Edit All"
      Select the progams you want to move to a folder - a checkmark will appear on the selected programs
      Press the green button for Edit Actions
      Choose "Move to Folder"
      If your folder does not exist yet, choose "Create New Folder", select and type a name.

      You can also set your timers up to place programming in a folder as it records. This includes Primetime Any Time programming.....

      SAMan,
      You nailed it. I already had 5 folders defined.
      I really surprised that the max is 5.
      Thanks for your help
