    My new Roamio OTA is recording unscheduled shows. When I see the red recording light on the front of the unit, I go to the guide to see what shows are recording. I never have set any of these shows to record. I have checked all the various settings on the Roamio OTA. Everything appears to be correct.

    Any suggestions on what might be causing these phantom recordings??

    TiVo is like a trick pony: It performs amazing stunts that no other pony can do but it has some irritating quirks such as uncontrollable flatulence that you just have to live with. :p

    Seriously, turning off suggestions will probably fix this. But then there are the cases where it's recording *something* but you can't tell what it is. This happens when it's recording Telemundo ads to show you later. I believe there is a way to block those but don't remember what it is.

    There is the Discovery Channel recordings too. I have a Premiere with no cable card on-line. I saw the red LED come on early one morning. I took a look, and a tuner said it was on my cable channel for Discovery. That would be sort of impossible - it's encrypted.

    But the ads get through somehow.
