Empty guide listings? ...and can I customize TiVo suggestion channels?

    I'm using my first TiVo (Premiere XL4) and I have a few questions after using it for a couple of days:

    1) Some of my guide listings are empty. Why is that? I'm using a cable card and it seems to be working fine, and 95% of the guide is populated, but certain channels or even certain items are just blank for seemingly no reason. I've forced a TiVo network update and they are still empty.

    2) TiVo suggestions are really neat, but I don't want it to record any SD programs or any SD channels. Is it possible to customize this?

    1) I don't really have much on this one, sorry.

    2) What I do is remove all SD channels (that I have an equivalent HD version) from the lineup. Go into settings and channels that you receive and uncheck anything that is a duplicate of an HD (or all SD if that is what you want). This takes a little time, but if you happen to channel surf or look through the guide they will be gone from there as well.

    How new is your unit? It takes a few days for the full data to populate.
