They do seem to come and go, don't they. I didn't have any at all yesterday.

I currently have over 80 suggestions listed. Thursday I had none.

Most definitely erratic but I'm not complaining.

If you are talking about Tivo's Suggestions accessed from Pick Programs To Record on the Tivo I currently have 101 in the list. If you are talking about Scheduled Suggestions (viewable either only on Tivoweb or through some complicated code sequence on the Tivo after enabling Backdoors) I only currently have one shown because my Tivo drive is rather full up and I need to delete some Keep Until I Delete recordings on it in order to allow more Suggestions to be scheduled to record.

Suggestions are most numerous after the weekly data refresh of the five main terrestrial channels on Saturday/Sunday and decline in number during the week as the amount of future data for the five main terrestrial channels reduces.

I find Suggestions are currently working better than they have ever been and if I use my Daily Mail email to actively give one thumbs down to any new series that startup that Tivo wrongly predicts I might like then I can keep Suggestions very relevant indeed.

I've had my TiVo 5 or 6 years and never looked at suggestions or understood what the thumbs were for - Am I missing out?

Maybe, maybe not. It depends how much TV you currently watch and if you have the time to watch any more.

Basically, a means you like show and a means you don't.

When you a show, Tivo will then 'suggest' other programmes you might like on the basis of your thumbs data. A show is automatically when you first select it to record, unless you it first.

Full details in the User Manual.
