Advertisements So I have one of those new TiVos that has six tuners and I was looking forward to discovering new shows based on my likes and dislikes. I knew that I'd have to start over with my likes/dislikes as there is no way to port that setting from the old device (there is a suggestion for you right there, let us migrate likes!) But I discovered that the new unit doesn't respond to the thumbs button. Yes I read the docs about the new "feature". Yes I reported it as a bug. And I got the response that this "degrade" is supposed to reduce confusion. Now my TiVo records sports. I hate sports. And I cannot make it stop. Now my TiVo records soap operas. I loathe soap operas. And I cannot make it stop. Now my TiVo records shows in languages I do not understand. I did alter the channel list to fix this one. Now my TiVo records reality TV shows. Does ANYONE actually like those? And I cannot make it stop. I missed the first 5 episodes of Batwoman because I'd failed to set up a Season Pass. But given the number of other hero type shows I watch (I record most of the Arrowverse already) a properly working recommendation system would have included Batwoman already as a suggestion. So without thumbs my TiVo records things I dislike and ignores things I do like. I've got six tuners and a highly ranked Season Pass for NCIS, yet the newest seasons episode 6 was not recorded because it was recording a suggestion at the time. That's a bug. You recorded 1 conflicting show and 5 suggestions instead of the show I'd told you to record. LAME. That's a bug. And if I had control of the preferences a tuner might have been free to record the Season Pass show. So please restore the function of the thumbs button. I'd like for the suggestions to actually be based on MY preferences, not on the preferences of whoever is paying you to recommend those thing.
