Thank you so much for responding. Yes, that was one of the first things I tried, unchecking the "sports" option. I was so pleased with myself, too, because I thought I had solved the problem but the sports suggestions are still present. In fact, I went through every option I could find in every section of the TiVo menu, deleting and unchecking everything that had to do with sports, even unchecking the sports channels from the My Channels lineup. I've scrolled through the bar and nothing other than sports appears: Rugby, Boxing, Auto Racing, Motorcross Bike something, Latin American futbol, etc. I've even clicked on a tile to look for some kind of "delete" option but it just gives options for LiveTV, OnePass Options, Upcoming Airings and All Upcoming Episodes. I've pressed "A" on every menu looking for additional options to delete and there is nothing.
I have four TiVO boxes installed and the same sports shows are displayed on all four TiVO sets. I've done the same (above) on all sets in the event that they are somehow interconnected but ... nothing. Is there some kind of online app that connects to the TiVO where you can make additional changes?
This is what the advertisement says about the TiVo SmartBar (underlining is mine, incidentally, none of the tiles have a yellow star): https://support.tivo.com/articles/Knowledge/TiVo-Experience-4-TiVo-Home
, located at the bottom of the HOME
screen, displays personalized predictions of shows based on the user's viewing habits and preferences
. As of this document's writing, prediction sources include recordings and live TV that the user watches. It does not predict shows that the user watches on OTT only. For example, Orange is the New Black
is a Netflix Original series, thus it will not be on the SmartBar
The first position on the SmartBar
is reserved for ads. The tile itself has a different aspect ratio from the other tiles on the strip. There is also a gold star which indicates the content is an ad. (Other tiles on the strip will not have a yellow star, indicating that the content is a prediction.)
wraps left and right, and wraps around at the end of the strip. A vertical divider line indicates the start of the strip.
