I have an issue where my TiVo box records random things that we don't even watch. Have shoddy woring outside from an engineer who could care less, could this be the issue or is there something else at play here?
My Tivo box is doing exactly the same. I changed the suggestions and I have been back in to check it is switched off. However, tonight it was recording News At Ten. I have just switched from Sky to Virgin and to be honest it is really annoying me. How can I stop this, does it mean there is a problem already with my Tivo box?
I'm sorry to hear that the unwanted recordings are being persistent after turning off the suggestions.
Have you checked your planned recordings to ensure there's no series link or planned recordings showing there? If so and the programmes involved aren't showing, it's worth trying to clear data that may be lingering. Follow these steps:
HOME > HELP & SETTINGS > CLEAR OR RESET TIVO BOX > CLEAR THUMBS RATINGS AND SUGGESTIONS > ENTER PIN > PRESS THUMBS DOWN X 3 > LST CH
This can take a few moments and best done when not recording at that time. If it's a recording you want it will be disrupted. Let me know how you get on with this, I hope it helps.

I have also had this problem, you can see it showing as being recorded and the red light is also showing but if you go into 'My planned recordings' its not showing as recording, likewise if you check in 'My Shows' it does not show up as being recorded. Very annoying as it sometimes stops you watching/recording another program without going into it an manually stopping it.
