No Videos in Suggestions folder, why?

I am noticing that only 26% of hard drive is being used. However, there are no videos in Tivo suggestions folder. That seems odd to me.

Do I need to turn on the suggestions folder somehow?

Have you received suggestions in the past? Occasionally, TiVo will go through a dry spell where no suggestions are recorded. Verify in the settings section that you have suggestions turned on. If you do, then you'll get them eventually.

Yes I have. The setting is checked to record suggestions when space is available.

I just find it odd since there is plenty of space but nothing recorded.

Yes. There are items in there to record. Not sure why you are asking though?

What cable company do you use? Do you have a tuning adapter?

Also, I forget the exact issue, which probably isn't affecting you.. but IIRC, if you turn off suggestions then back on, you don't get the suggestions folder back.. you have to reboot.

From reading these links, the issue appears to an issue with Tivo and they will be providing a software update soon to fix.

Not much I can do about it until then. Is that your understanding also?

I have 3 Premiere's in my house. 2 of them record suggestions while the 3rd does not.

The 3rd unit which does not record suggestions does everything else fine.
