Delete button on Roku Playon Screen

After I have watched an episode on via my Roku I would like to delete it from my PC via my Roku.  We already know that the Playon on Roku can communicate back to the PC because it has the ability to request that the PC record an episode.  So I see no technical reason why a delete request cannot be made from the Roku screen.  The Playon app on the PC already has the delete ability.

    I agree with this request. If cannot be done from Roku then at least make it available from iPhone or iPad. Having to go all the way back to PC is inconvenient.

    I agree.  Every client used to stream playon recorded videos to a TV should have the ability to delete a recording from storage.  I us a DVR on my cable service to record programs I'd like to watch, then after I've watched them (once) I delete them.  In essence I'm using the DVR to time shift programs and create a play list.  The lack of a client based delete function means I cannot use Playon as such and hence cannot "cut the cord".
