    Especially since I unchecked most of the things in the prefs, it gives me stupid things like informercials sometimes!

    The Discovery bar is not kid safe. Sometimes it has shown inappropriate images for kids, so when I go to put on a show for my kids, they might see some bloody or scary logo.

    I would then recommend that you turn off all options except for Sports, which shouldn't have any scary images. Personally, I only have My Shows checked in the Settings, but sometimes it still shows other recommendations.

    I think Sports is the only option I have turned off in the Discovery bar.

    My only complaint is that it doesn't care about the channel selection. Telling me something to watch on a channel I have deselected is a waste. I have set it to Popular on Live TV, but that seems random. If it really asked the home office what was popular, perhaps it would be a good option.

    My 4 year old likes the Discovery bar as it shows images for shows she might want to watch (especially ones we didn't know we had recorded via Suggestions).
