The Roamio manual does seem to indicate that you should see them even if you don't have recording turned on. And that you should see an upcoming Suggestions list under Browse TV& Movies - TV - Suggestions but I don't see Suggestions there.
You can rate any show — whether it’s live, recorded, or listed in the program guide — by
pressing the THUMBS UP or THUMBS DOWN button on your remote. You can give
a show up to three Thumbs Up (great!) or three Thumbs Down (terrible!).
TiVo Suggestions uses these ratings to create a list of shows you might like. The more
shows you rate over time, the better TiVo Suggestions will get at finding interesting shows
Auto-recording TiVo Suggestions
When your TiVo box has available space, it automatically records TiVo Suggestions. But you
don’t ever need to worry about recorded Suggestions taking up space — here’s why:
• TiVo Suggestions never replace shows you record, or prevent your shows from being
• TiVo Suggestions are always the first shows deleted to make room for your recordings.
If you’d prefer not to record TiVo Suggestions automatically, you can turn them off. From
the TiVo Central screen choose ‘Settings & Messages,’ then ‘Settings,’ then ‘Recording,’
then ‘TiVo Suggestions.’
On the TiVo Suggestions screen, choose ‘No, don’t record TiVo Suggestions.’ You can still
see the TiVo Suggestions list and choose to record individual shows.
Watching TiVo Suggestions
Want to see what TiVo Suggestions are ready to watch? Here’s how to find them:
• TiVo Suggestions appears as a category in the left column of the categorized My Shows
list. Highlight it to see all of your recorded Suggestions.
• Alternatively, when you select a category in My Shows, you'll find a Suggestions folder
for that category. For example, in the TV Series category, you'll find a TiVo Suggestions
folder that contains only suggestions for TV series.
Viewing the upcoming Suggestions list
To review the list of upcoming TiVo Suggestions, choose ‘Find TV, Movies, & Videos,’ then
‘Browse TV & Movies,’ then ‘TV,’ then ‘Suggestions.’
To make sure a show records, highlight it and press SELECT on your remote. You can also
use THUMBS UP or THUMBS DOWN to rate shows in this list and improve future
To display a list of all shows that you’ve rated, while viewing the upcoming TiVo
Suggestions screen, press ENTER on your remote to see the Review Thumbs screen. Then,
highlight a show and use the THUMBS UP and THUMBS DOWN buttons on your remote to
change its rating.
