    I got a Tivo Roamio 2 months ago. In the last few days, I noticed it was recording shows that (1) I did not set to record, whether via manual recording, One Pass or Wish List, (2) did not appear in my To Do list, and (3) did not appear in "My shows". Once it was recording a show on ESPN, and the other time it was recording a channel I don't even subscribe to.

    This never happens to my other TiVo boxes, from good old Series 2 to Series 3 to Premiere.

    Does anyone have similar experiences? Is TiVo trying to download certain features / updates via the cable company? Or do I simply have a bad box that I should get a warranty repair?

    Do you have suggestions turned on?

    I turned it off too. My OCD didn't allow for random stuff in My Shows. However, I have been told that the Suggestions have lowest priority and will be deleted first if you run out of room.

    Thanks for all the replies. It is indeed "Suggestions".

    Funny I didn't recall having to set anything to turn off "Suggestions" on my other boxes, but then not recalling doing it doesn't mean I haven't done it. :)
