    We upgraded to Premiere 4 last year. I'm pretty sure at first the suggestions were working normally, but at some point they stopped.

    I've searched for answers but none of the solutions has worked. Most of them are solutions for Tivo not *recording* the listed suggestions, but my problem is that the list of suggestions is empty to begin with. But here are the things I've found:

    1) Tivo might be out of space -- No, it is only about 30% full.

    2) Tivo might already be recording stuff -- No, we have 4 tuners and very rarely are all 4 in use. Most of the time, NONE of them are in use.

    3) You need to rate more stuff so Tivo can figure out what to suggest -- No, we have hundreds of things rated...on older Tivo boxes, this was definitely more than enough to get suggestions.

    4) Turn suggestions off, reboot Tivo. Turn suggestions on, reboot Tivo again. -- Didn't work. Most pages seem to list this as the "ultimate" fix and assume it will magically work after you do this. But I've tried, and it doesn't. I just saw some thread saying to do this a second time, I suppose I could try that but I'm dubious.

    Anybody have other ideas on how to get the suggestions working? Thanks!

    Well, I just found the following thread which says that just having a tuning adapter in the loop will stop the suggestions list from populating. Some people are working around it by powering off their tuning adapater for extended periods of time. Still reading the thread, maybe a better solution has popped up:

    EDIT: Mods can close this thread if they want, the link above is the exact same issue and has more information.
