    No season pass, no wish list, no manual recording, and these are not Tivo suggestions either. Rather, since upgrading to Series 4, all New Shows This Fall are being recorded for some reason, mixing into my list of requested shows. What's going on and how do I turn I off?

    Do they show in the To Do list? Perhaps you inadvertently selected a Guru Guide for the new Fall Season. I'd check your Guru Guides as the behavior seems to fit.

    That might be it, but I can't figure out how to turn it off. To get to "Guru Guides," one actually has to switch from HD to SD menus (wtf?!), but there isn't a "Guru Guide" for "New Fall Shows," rather that is a "Collection" (accessible through HD menus), but I can't find option to record or not record. I've seen some suggestions to Repeat Guided Setup, but I'm not that desperate yet. And then there are the links to non-existent web pages. I was an early adopter of Tivo, and I love it, but I really think that by now they should have been able to completely fix the UI to be completely elegant, flexible, and powerful, with no hidden crap like this.

    If it's the newer New Fall Shows collection, it should appear in your Season Pass Manager and you can delete it from there.

    If it's the older Guru Guide, you have to cancel it via tivo.com:

    Do you have folders turned off? Suggestions will mix into the list if you do.
