    I recently noticed that once my S2 540 TiVo running 7.3.1 finishes recording a suggestion and without asking first, it changes the live TV channel even though there are no scheduled recordings and it's not recording another suggestion. Once this has occurred, the enter/last channel button does not return to the previous channel (there is a tone but other behavior). I thought this was strange so I figured it was a good reason for a first post. This does not occur for recordings that I've scheduled and I am not using KidZone. Is this the intended behavior?

    After it records a suggestion, it returns to the channel it was idling on before - to seem as though it never affected your viewing.

    Yeah, people used to complain that they'd leave the TiVo on a channel and come back to find it was on a different channel, and they didn't like that. So TiVo now has Suggestions, and any other non-user-recording, tune back to the channel it was previously on to act as if nothing had happened. That was introduced a few code revisions back.

    And welcome to the forums.

    I guess I didn't notice until now that it changes the channel back. I also thought you could hit the last/enter button to get back to what was on. Either way, no big deal... Just thought it might be new. Thanks for the info.

    it is somewhatr new. Version 7.2 something I think. Good eye for detail on seeing the channel change.
