How do you delete a movie from the "Recently Watched" list? Is this possible?

Split your post from the Connections issues thread, as it doesn't belong there.

I don't think, off-hand, that it's possible. That's a Netflix-side thing. I believe it only shows the last 10 recently watched titles, so some will disappear eventually.

Not possible. That has been asked a bunch. (Often due to soft porn that the watcher did not want others in his/her household to know about.)

What you can do, as RokuShawnS implied, is watch several shows and it will go away. You do not need to watch the whole thing, just start it and run a few seconds and it should join the recently watched list and bump the oldest off. It does need to be 10 different shows however.

Does the recently viewed list from my Roku show up on another player such as a LG Blu-ray player. I really don't want to shock my elderly mother with my late night viewing choice. Having to watch shows to push it off the list is a waste of time. Netflix needs to put a choice column in their database!

Recently viewed is a NetFlix feature so it should be on all devices that show your NetFlix queue and include a recently viewed display section.

Remember you can scroll all displayed shows off by just watching a little bit of several shows.

Here is another idea that could work. Purchase the Instant Watch Browser channel (which is awesome for a variety of reasons), and then go into your Netflix settings on the Roku and disable the search function. What that will give you is only the queue on the Netflix channel. You do all of your searching from the IWB channel, which doesn't display previous viewed. The only place the recently watched will show up is on your computer, not on your tvs.
