TiVo startup channel

My TiVo box seems to have a mind of its own on startup.  It just seems to select any random channel to show and not anything predictable (like last channel watched etc).  Anyone have any idea why?  Can I modify this behavior or do I just have to live with it?

Re: TiVo startup channel

TiVo will either start up on the last channel you were watching or a channel that was recording in the period when the box was in standby.

Re: TiVo startup channel

Hmmm. That is certainly the sort of logic I would expect but it seems to start up on channels that I wouldn't expect.  I'll have a good look just to make sure it's not some sort of series link issue.  However it may well be that it's doing some random recordings too.  Thanks for the help.

Re: TiVo startup channel

It'll be down to the Suggestions that TiVo records which record from any or all available tuners - they don't however then count towards your recording usage.

So if a suggestion is recorded using the tuner that you've selected to view, then it will change to whatever the last channel the suggestion was on.
