Hey all,

I started rating movies/shows using the Tivo and it seems that it is recording all the suggestions that it may seem to find interesting for me based on the ratings. How do I keep it from recording these?

Thanks!

Why do you want to turn them off? They take no space away from requested recordings. And if you don't want suggestions, why are you rating programs?

That's more or less what I was originally going to post until it occurred to me that the TiVo can still generate a list of suggestions even if it isn't going to record them. *shrug*

Obviously this is a personal preference thing but I look at my Comcast HD DVR and see, after the recent holiday season, that the 'now playing list' is empty (well, one old episode of Malcolm in the Middle, but...)

I look at my Tivo, however, and it has a dozen screens full of things to watch, some of them interesting.

The alternative is channel surfing, something I haven't done since God invented Tivo. :p

Thanks NoCleverUsername, that is just what i needed to know. Our Tivo was changing the channel to record suggestions when my kids didn't want it to. Today my kids were watching PBS when the Tivo switched it to Law& Order and they got upset at a crime scene. Now that won't happen, thanks!
