Re: Tv programs selected for record

it's probably recording "suggestions"

you can disable this in Help & Settings -> recordings -> suggestions

Re: Tv programs selected for record

And if it's not suggestions, then your wife might be using the TV Control app to do this remotely.

Less likely, but still possible.

Re: Tv programs selected for record

We my wife and me have seen these recording appear on the tv guid screen that we have both not selected 

this just makes me think the network has been hacked in some way.

That'll be suggestions then - have you checked the menu option previously suggested?
