Why does TiVo record random programmes?

My TiVo keeps recording shows which have not been programmed.  Do I need a replacement box?

No, you just need to turn off the Suggestions feature.

Re: Why does TiVo record random programmes?

Thanks. It must have been turned on by the last software upgrade. Not easy to find out how to turn off suggestions! But found it in the forum. This is a feature I can do without!

Re: Why does TiVo record random programmes?

I know this is an old post but this happened to me last night, it recorded a programme from a channel I have never watched and to me has no relevance to anything I watch. My suggestions have always been off and on double checking... were still off,  and there is nothing in my series links or manual recordings ever set on this channel in the past, I just thought i'd add this to the post in case it happened to anyone else last night? It's a mystery. Smiley Indifferent

Hi ekg,

 

Thanks for posting!

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with recordings.

Has this ever happened before or since? Hopefully it's just a one-off but I'd like to make sure there's no issues there.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Josh,

No this has never happened before or since, a complete one off, I just posted in case it was the start of something or other people might have had the same thing happen.

Cheers though!

Erica. Smiley Happy
