Random record lights on!

!st visit on this forum I noticed a similar fault posted. Random record lights on but no recordings corresponding. Nothing listed in "My Shows" but if you look in the channel listings it shows programmes in record mode, but are not actually recording!

The lights lit can be one, two or all three depending on "real" recordings.

Any advice?

Thanks

Re: Random record lights on!

Your box will be recording suggestions, programs that the box thinks you may like based on other programs you have recorded and rated. They don't show up in the main area of My Shows, they have their own folder called Suggestions.

Re: Random record lights on!

You can turn off suggestions 


Go to Help & Settings from the main menu.
Choose Settings and enter your PIN (if you've set one up).
Choose Recordings, then Suggestions to change your settings.

Re: Random record lights on!

Thanks. That's something I will try. Is it then true to think the lights up to "suggest" a recording for you as I have never found any programme actually recorded?

Re: Random record lights on!

Thanks. It seems the "suggestions" is my problem so I will follow your guide to change the settings.
Thanks again.

Re: Random record lights on!

Hi Arelle63,

I just wanted to pop by and see how you got on with turning off the 'Suggestions' feature.

I also wanted to pop this article here: How do I teach my TiVo® box what I like watching? in case it maybe useful.  Suggestions can be pretty handy when it's taught to record things you may like. Smiley Happy

Anything recorded via 'Suggestions' can be found in the 'Suggestions' folder.  Go to: MY SHOWS > SCROLL DOWN THE LIST > here you should see the suggestions folder.

If you need anything else or have any further queries, don't hesitate to give the community a shout Smiley Happy

All the best.

Collette.

Re: Random record lights on!

Hi. Turned off Suggestions in the menu (must be default "on") and all is okay.

Thanks for your reply.
