    I've had a Premiere since it was released a couple of years ago. Why does it ignore a show with 3 Thumbs Up to record two other random shows at that time with no Thumbs Up and aren't even close my interest level?

    For example, I have a strong interest in World War II so I 3-Thumbs up every thing I can on there. The Military channel show 8 episodes of World War II in Color and Tivo doesn't record any of them, but does record random cooking shows and other nonsense at those times of which I have absolutely no interest.

    The TiVo isn't THAT smart. :) Also, if you have no interest in cooking shows, ever, make sure to thumbs down those. Nobody knows the EXACT methodology TiVo uses to select what suggestions to record, except the programmers/designers.

    In your case, you would do better to also enable wish lists and add "world war 2" or whatnot to the keyword searching.

    I've been able to coax several of my Tivo's in to recording NASCAR but no other motor sports, that takes some time however. (and many bops on the nose with a newspaper)
