    I have two Bolts (and have owned a series of TiVos since 2005) but the newer of the two Bolts won't record suggestions no matter what I do. I'm familiar with the menu selection where you can choose whether to record suggestions, but it doesn't do anything.

    I transferred OnePasses and recordings from a Premiere (offhand I believe suggestions were disabled on that box) when I set the Bolt up a few years ago. New recordings record but my Suggestions folder remains empty.

    Anyone else have a similar issue? Any suggestions? The other Bolt records suggestions just fine so it's mostly a minor inconvenience.

    How new? It takes about a week or so. Have you been giving thumbs to content? Transferring content and OPs does not transfer the thumbs ratings.

    I've had it for a couple of months.

    I'll check thumb ratings - that might be the issue (although IME insufficient ratings has resulted in widely inappropriate suggestions rather than a complete lack).

    Months is weird, I figured it was days.

    I have a Roamio which very nearly completely stopped recording suggestions when the Rovi data switch was made. It used to record 2 or 3 old movies from random channels every day, now it has recorded 2 or 3 in the last year.

    Wait -- I actually had a suggestion record yesterday. It's in Spanish so we've made it to the "widely inappropriate suggestions" stage. None of my transferred APs had thumbs, so thanks for the heads up on that. I went through and gave 1 Up to most of them just now.
