    Since I got my replacement Tivo last week, it records every show on MSNBC and nothing else under Suggestions. I guess I probably had it tuned to that and turned off the TV leaving the Tivo on so it thinks that is all I want to watch all day? But, I have watched lots of other live TV, etc. and still all it records is MSNBC all day. I'm tempted to clear everything again and start off leaving it on a movie channel all day to see what happens.

    There is a "Clear Suggestions" function. Your logic implies you performed a restart while on MSNBC and that put all tuners on MSNBC. Also, will it record all MSNBC shows tomorrow?

    Since I received the new Tivo a week ago, Suggestions has recorded 105 shows on MSNBC and nothing else. As far as I can tell, it is pretty much recording every show, every day, as there are 7-9 recorded episodes of every daily show.

    Right now it's recording Alex Witt?

    It only seems to record David Gura on Saturdays for some reason. It is on its 10th episode of Katy Tur right now.

    MSNBC has a lot of metadata problems. They did a lot of additions & deletions over the last month. Notice the missing data at 4am CST for First Look. Katy and David recently moved their time slots. TiVo will record shows with missing data (Up with David Gura). Good luck, but you might look into Wishlists. I use one for "Comedy Central Programming".

    17 days in with my new Tivo and suggestions are 100% almost everything on MSNBC. This is just crazy.

    Nothing based on Thumbs. Nothing based on the 20 or so shows I record on other networks. I do have a season pass for Morning Joe, but really? The winner is Rachel Maddow, 16 episodes!

    Of course, TiVo Support didn't know what it was talking about and set you off on a sad wild-goose chase. People here know more, having heard the word from the mouth of the TiVo administration.

    Mine finally started recording things other than MSNBC. Got a couple of episodes of Big Bang Theory and some Madame Secretary reruns. Still waiting for the "magic" to happen.

    Mine is primarily MSNBC as well until I thumbs downed the channels. I will put it on in the background while working from home a couple days a week but it doesn't record any of the shows I actually have thumbed up.

    Mine records shows after Season Pass recordings. Worthless. No apparent correlation with the thumbs ratings. I have turned off recording suggestions on one of my units, might do the same with the other.

    Was a great feature, now completely broken and useless. Why can't they just go back to how it used to work? I'm guessing no one really uses it so no one notices or cares.
