Why does my Tivo box record programmes I have not requested. This can interfere with recordings I do

Why does my Tivo box record programmes I have not requested. This can interfere with recordings I do wish to record but cannot as the amount of channels being recorded has been exceded. Nor does the Tivo box say which unwanted programmes are being recorded and I have to check the TV guide to find it and delete it.

Easy. Follow these instructions.

Turn off auto recording
If you don’t like TiVo Suggestions making recordings for you, you can turn it off.
1.Go to Help & Settings from the main menu.
2.Choose Settings and enter your PIN (if you’ve set one up).
3.Choose Recordings, then Suggestions to change your settings.

Hi 27melton,

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

I'm just adding to what HowardML has already mentioned. To learn more about suggestions you can look here.

 

If you ever want to know what's recording you can follow these steps on the remote:-

Info > Press down 4 times > 'R'

 

Please let us know if there is anything you're still not sure of.

 

Thanks
