    Is there any place to input to their algorithm?
    After years of having TiVo, I turned on suggestions again, and find that 2/3 of what's recored are Spanish programs. Unfortunately, I don't speak any other language, and it's just clutter in that folder.

    The easiest way to tweak the algorithm is to just give the Spanish programs a thumbs down. It will get the message . :)

    The only thumbs the OPs Tivo probably has are those from OnePasses. They start to learn pretty quickly, give three thumbs down to anything you will never want to watch and that similar items are also unwanted, one thumbs down to things that you don't like, but that similar items may be interesting. Do the opposite for thumbs up and you have a tweaked suggestion.

    Are the recordings from spanish language channels? Remove them from your channels list.

    Here's what I see all the time. I Explore a program. I go to the Cast. I see what seems to be duplicate credits in Spanish. I have no Spanish channels checked. TiVo just seems to have a Spanish bias. o_O

    Be cautioned about doing any triple thumbs down. It says never view anything with any one who has ever been involved. There's a saying "Actors act. Waiters wait." It means any actor not currently working on better material will take infomercial gigs. Doing a triple thumbs down gets problematic very fast. I recommend double thumbs down for stuff you'll never watch.

    I used to do double thumbs down on infomercials. Then I recorded those Best Commercials shows near the Super Bowl. Now I do single thumbs down on lots of infomercials, sports and such. Plus single thumbs up on movies with actors I like and double thumbs up on my very favorite shows. The absolute best top notch shows like Babylon 5, M*A*S*H and West Wing are the only ones that I give triple thumbs up. I treat it as an exponential scale.
