Tivo keeps tuning to channel I don't get

I constantly find my Roamio basic on channel 9. Nothing broadcasts on channel 9 here. It's not selected in my channel list. I can have all 4 tuners on 4 different channels (Not 9), leave, and when I come home, normally at least one tuner is on channel 9, if not all 4. I live alone, no animals, so nobody is using the Tivo or accidentally hitting the remote. The Tivo is doing it on it's own. Any ideas? No, not really a problem in any way (I haven't noticed any missed recordings because of it), but I'm definitely curious.

Do you have suggestions on? After a suggestion is recorded, Tivo tries to tune to the previous channel. If you happened to last tune channel 9, it may be using that as the channel to return to after the suggestion completes recording. I had this occur just this week and recalled typing the bogus channel number that it kept tuning across several tuners.

I do have suggestions turned on. However, as I said, I can manually tune it to 4 different channels I do get, leave, and when I come back, at least 1 will be on the channel I don't get. If it were recording a suggestion and going back to the previous channel, wouldn't it go to the channel I manually set it on?

Yea, I know. Maybe it thinks channel 9 is the last channel not currently tuned across your 4 tuners. I.e. if you change just those tuners on channel 9 to something else, then channel 9 is still the last channel not a tuner. Its my only theory that makes sense.

Anyway, I had the same thing as you, tuned 6 tuners to subscribed channels, and came back again with 3 tuned to the bogus channel. After the 2nd time it happened, I went through and changed each tuner multiple times to subscribed channels. So far so good.

What does tivo think channel 9 is in your lineup? If you go into the channel list where you have it unchecked, what is the description?
