    I have had it turned off Suggestions so it won't record but "Tivo playlist" says I have 8.4GB taken by "Suggestions".

    I'd like to have that space if possible.

    Your TiVo will automatically delete any and all suggestions the moment you want to use the space for something else. So you DO have that space available for your use, without doing anything. Just go ahead and record some stuff!

    Suggestions will NEVER prevent a scheduled program from recording, and your TiVo will never delete a planned recording to record a suggestion. They are for unused space only.

    You can manually delete all the remaining suggestions if you want, but it'll just be cosmetic.

    The number of Tivo Suggestions recordings is actually a good indicator of how much free space is available for your own recordings.

    Turn Suggestions off and be happy.

    One feature of Tivo that is a waste of time. My Tivo does not even know me at all, otherwise the suggestions might be a little on track :D

    Are you saying that you have Suggestions turned off? (wording a little awkward).

    And you are getting this message even though your folder is empty and it is turned off?

    All I did was go into Settings and say "Don't record TiVo suggestions". That's my "turn off".

    Sorry bout being vague.

    Use the thumbs up and thumbs down ratings on shows as you go. Within a couple of weeks it starts to know your tastes pretty well.

    At first I was amused by the randomness of the suggestions. Then I was impressed by how accurate they were as it built up the database. Now if I clean them out i figure the record light will go on all the time recording thumbs-up stuff until it fills the disk.
