Random channels

Can someone please tell me why my Tivo box starts up on different channels every time I turn it on. I leave it on the channel I want and it seldom starts on this. Very frustrating!!😠

Re: Random channels

Hi MikeCH1,

 

A warm welcome to the community Smiley Happy

 

It may be down to 2 possibilities that your box is on a different channel in the morning:

 

1.  You have multiple recordings set and due to clash at some point the channel will change.

2.  You h ave Suggestions turned on which may contribute to recording clashes.  If this is the case and you'd like to turn off the suggestions, then follow these steps:

 

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

 

They are the 2 immediate things I could think of that may cause the TiVo® box to be on a different channel the next day from where you finished off.

 

Let me know how you get on Smiley Happy

 

Collette.
