    It's easy to tell if your Tivo is affected by the suggestions bug by simply checking the suggestions list. If suggestions are enabled and the suggestions list is permanently empty but will populate with the tuning adapter disconnected, then your box has the Tivo software bug.

    If your suggestions list is populating but the actual recordings are failing, then you might be the victim of a denied speculative tune by your provider. This type of failure will show in your recording history.

    Tivo Margret has announced a planned fall update for the Premiere line for this suggestions and tuning adapter issue. I doubt we'll ever see a fix for the HD/S3 platform.

    Seems like the simple fix is to lie to the TA and tell it that all recordings are user-selected. What's the TA going to do, report you for recording "too many" shows?

    That would only fix the issue of denied speculative tunes, which is not what is preventing suggestions recording for the majority of users.

    OP here. My Roamio Pro has been a suggestion recording machine. I have almost a hundred in about a week.

    BTW I have Charter, a tuning adapter and a Motorola M card.

    Same here, my Roamio Pro records sugestions nonstop. Charter, Cisco tuning adapter, Cisco M-card.

    It's nice to have suggestions again, after years of going without them on my Series 3.

    mine started recording after about 2 days. It failed at figuring out what I like. It recorded a bunch of stuff that will never get watched. I shut suggestions off.

    You need to use thumb ratings and give it a chance. It can take weeks/months before it "figures out" what you like.

    People give up too easily. How does it hurt you to have it turned on?

    You are a complex person -- give it time. Help out by giving a :thumbsdown: to suggestions that are wrong/abysmal and :up: to those that are right on.
