Looks like I was successful... Tivo recorded 2 suggestion-programs today. I read somewhere that using 3-thumbs-down "too much" can cause problems for the algorithm. I don't know if that's real or not (I have had many 3-downs in the past, and it didn't cause a problem back then.) I imagine something corrupted the DB. I wish I could have troubleshot it deeper, but I can't seem to find any direct reference to the actual location of this DB, nor how to repair it. At least the clean function worked to restore my machine... F.Jones - you may consider doing the reset suggestions I mentioned above. Or just give it some time? Do you see any items in the Pick Programs/Suggestions menu pick?
