    you press green button while watching any channel
    your planned recordings will show up,highlight the one you want to delete
    press red button, then click on yes

    You don't say what you are running.

    If OpenATV:

    Menu -> Timers -> Auto Timers

    Delete what you don't want from there.

    As woosh said if ur on openatv its menu/timers/autotimers. Then highlight the one you want to delete there and press yellow.

    But i had the same problem as u as it kept coming back, because theres one extra step i hadnt done. And thats after you delete it, you then have to press green to save changes. It should then delete any planned timers as well permanately

    have you checked both locations. Timers > timers, and Timers > autotimers. As you can set a repeat timer in timers not just autotimers.

    Also I think once you delete an autotimer, you have to also manually delete the timer it created to.
    After you have done that, you shouldn't be getting anymore.

    What skin are you using. (I ask that as maybe the timer is there, but not displaying the list on that screen)

    just can try deleting it from the xml files then.

    Not 100% sure, but I think its these files

    /etc/enigma2

    timers.xml
    autotimer.xml

    open them, remove the phantom timer, if it exists
