    The only Tivo Suggestions List I know of is in Find Programs, yet several people are telling me there's a suggestions list in Now Playing.

    I don't have a suggestion list in my NPL. Am I missing something?

    Okay, the first thing is, do you have the recording of suggestions turned on? If not, you need to go to Messages & Settings > Settings > Recording > TiVo Suggestions > Yes, record when there's space. If this is already turned on, and Tivo has recorded suggestions, at the bottom of your NPL (after the listing of your recorded programs) you should see a Tivo Suggestions folder.

    If you let the TiVo record suggestions, the recorded suggestions should be at the bottom of your Now Playing List.
    (Unless you have Grouping turned off & the Now Playing list sorted Alphabetically. In which case the suggestions will be scattered through the list alphabetically.)

    Recorded TiVo suggestions have a little grey circle with the word TiVo inside it next to them to mark them as a suggestion.

    If you don't have any suggestions in the Now Playing list it might be because someone turned off suggestions (see ebeckhusen's post).
    Or it might be because your TiVo is full of normal recordings and there isn't any room for it to record suggestions.

    You probably should have just asked this question in your other thread since that is where it was brought up, and pertains to the original topic in that thread, and are just receiving the same answers that were already given there:

    Oh, okay, now I understand. I don't give power to TiVo to record its suggestions at-its-will, (I select those that are appealing). (I don't have suggestions turned off, but I do have automatically record suggestions turned off)

    However, were I to allow TiVo to record without my intervention AND if I sorted my NPL with "groups" there would be a group/folder called Suggestions. Am I on target?

    Ah, I think I get it!!

    Thanks to all of you for clarifying this for me!

    Correct.

    All the recorded suggestions would appear in that group/folder.

    However they will also appear in any other relevant group.
    For example, if you have a season pass for Scrubs, any episodes of Scrubs that the TiVo records as suggestions will be listed in both the Suggestions group and the Scrubs group.

    Thanks Jon. Your input is appreciated, and now I understand why so many people misunderstood what was so clear to me!

    So, I go back to my original premise -- I still would like to be able to sort the Tivo Suggestions file! :D
