I have a Series 3 and an HD - and both of them have stopped recording suggestions! I've had these boxes for many years and this has never happened. Just noticed it today.
The Series 3 has not recorded a suggestion since 7/18 and the HD since 7/23. They both have >100 GB of space in deleted shows, and they both (historically) record suggestions daily.
I rebooted the Series 3 since it was the worst offender and it didn't record in 12 hours. Just followed an instruction I found online to change setting to not record suggestions, restart, change setting back to record, reboot. Have done that but won't know until tomorrow I guess if that worked.
Anyone else experience this with tried 'n true Tivos?
Also - haven't restarted my Tivo in forever, but didn't get the Tivo guy just static when it restarted. Got the wait screens but not the animation - that used to be the best part! Where's Tivo Guy? This isn't right!
