Recordings labeled "Manual: xxxx"

Our Roamio Plus regularly records programs which are shown as "Manual:" followed by a title. Currently recording is "Manual: Dorian Grey". We have no ideas what causes this. Is this a new TiVo feature to create "super" suggestions?

You must have repeat Manual recordings setup. Check your Season Passes page. All recordings setup as Manual will get that prefix.

I haven't seen it myself, but I think some folks have reported that the "extra" recordings made due to lots of extra padding made to a SP show (a bug that started a couple of months ago) are labeled "Manual". Could this be it?

Yes, there's a bug in a recent update, where (IIRC), if you add padding to a recording in the To Do list, then you will often (??) have the ORIGINAL airing actually NOT padded properly, but get another 'manual' recording happen with the new padding.

Though I ran into it the other day again and I think both had padding.. I am 99% positive I've seen it where the 'named' recording doesn't get padding but the manual one does.. which of course makes it slightly a pain, PLUS it takes up another tuner..

True, this.
