Tivo records random programmes

As it says on the tin.

My Tivo box keeps recording random programmes (30 or so on some days).

I have got no planned recordings or series links set up and have carried out a full reset and delete a couple of times (one is in progress as I am writing this).

Any ideas?

Re: Tivo records random programmes

they're probably Suggestions

to turn off...

Help & Settings > Settings > Recordings > Suggestions and select No if you're currently ticked on Yes and you want rid of them

They don't count towards your free disk space so don'r worry about them filling your disk preventing your recordings

You might find over time that Suggestions will pick up something you're interested in though, TiVO learns your watching habits

Re: Tivo records random programmes

Thanks for that.

I have switched suggestions off and will see how it goes.

As an aside, after the full reset & delete the menu navigation is almost instantaneous.
