Confused Tivo User

I am so confused by how Tivo works - for instance I went to my deleted items tonight to look for something for my grandson.  In there I found LOADS of things that I never recorded let alone deleted - how did they get there? Why do some things record and others don;t? 

Please help ............................................

Hi brownowl58,

 

Thanks for coming by Smiley Happy

 

I just wanted to pop by and see how things are today.  As sjp123 mentioned it could be 'Suggested' Recordings that have deleted and now appearing in the deleted folder.

 

If this is a feature you would like to turn off you can do so following these steps:

 

HOME > HELP & SETTINGS > SETTINGS > RECORDINGS > SUGGESTIONS > ON/OFF

 

If you'd like to know anything else about TiVo®, don't hesitate to ask.  We're here to help if you need us. Smiley Happy

do you have suggestions enabled?

 

could be that the programmes you're not familiar with are deleted suggestions.

 

don't worry about the volume of your deleted shows, they don't count against your disk space used and will be removed when your TiVo needs to actual disk space to record a new programme.
