    I've had a Tivo for 2 years, and I have it set to only record shows that I want it to record. Lately it keeps recording Bill O'reilly. I have No season pass for Bill O'reilly and I have No wishlist for Bill O'reilly. When I look in my "To Do" list, it is never scheduled to record. However every day it show up recorded . I'm the only one using this Tivo. So, I can't understand why it keeps recording.

    What does the recording history say when you look at it? it should give some clue as to the source even if it is an ARWL.
    Do you have pets that are conservative?

    Was this Tivo ever owned by someone else? I have a friend that owns one of my old Tivos and never put it on her own account, I occasionally tell it to record things for her then tell her after the fact :)

    I looked at the more info on it and it is definitely not a regular recording. It has no channel. Also, it is only 3 minutes 14 seconds long. This is definitely Tivo forcing a recording on me.
