    In the past I've been able to remove the What to Watch Now suggestions from My Shows, but it has been sitting at the bottom of the list for the past couple of weeks now. Is there anyway to get rid of this pesky hindrance?

    Is it really hopeless?

    There are some things I could compare it to, but I think it's hopeless. :(

    How did you do this in the past? I believe it has always been permanent.

    yeah, I sure never knew how to remove it.. I would remove it..

    heck, I would PAY a one time fee to get rid of the stupid bar at the top, too... which is completely useless.

    I HAVE A TIVO. I don't need any reason to find MORE stuff to watch.. I already record FAR more than I can watch!!

    As much as people like to knock apps like TubiTV & Vudu its good for those who cannot afford even basic cable and get by with minimal internet speeds. [and who doesn't love Space 1999 ;)]

    But one does wonder why the app hand [as opposed to pimp hand] is so sadly weak on Tivo; I got mine half a decade ago and its still basically the same apps it came with : where's HBOnow for those with OTA only Roamios, Crackle or even Smithsonian Channel [which IIRC is free on AppleTV] New apps are few here and there and usually for some very niche audience [YuuuuuuuupTV]

    Tivo should have sought out and helped build apps for for their Tivos especially since the want by US to rival other streamer devices and thought by now there would be an AppStore/GooglePlay way of placing new apps on your Tivo.... But I have the feeling in maybe a decade Tivo's Lifetime contracts will be worth the same as ReplayTV's

    Now onward & upward to crippled EnterWebz to see who "Can Have a Cheezburger"

    and nowadays for some reason the bar at top is showing me a lot of infomercials.. I have the shopping channels turned off AFAIK (I turn any new ones off when I notice), but it still shows me infomercials on other channels (which does happen seemingly at all hours of the day on some channels that _also_ have real programming). So I keep three thumbs-down-ing the informercials that show up.. (and nowadays thumbing on the top bar DOES seem to stick.. for a long time it didn't.. you'd thumb, then move to another and back, and it didn't save your previous thumb-ing)
