TiVo Suggestions

You can rate any show – whether it's live, recorded, or listed in the program guide — by pressing the THUMBS UP® or THUMBS DOWN® button. You can give a show up to three Thumbs Up (great!) or three Thumbs Down (terrible!).

TiVo Suggestions uses these ratings to create a list of shows you might like. The more shows you rate over time, the better TiVo Suggestions will get at finding interesting shows for you.

Auto-recording TiVo Suggestions

When your DVR has available space, it automatically records programs based on your TiVo Suggestions. But you don't ever need to worry about recorded Suggestions taking up space – here's why:

  • TiVo Suggestions never replace shows you record, or prevent your shows from being recorded.
  • TiVo Suggestions are always the first shows deleted to make room for your recordings.

If you'd prefer not to record TiVo Suggestions automatically, you can turn them off.

  • Press the TiVo button and select menu
  • Choose settings then user preferences
  • Select TiVo suggestions and change to off

Watching TiVo Suggestions

Watch, save or delete your TiVo suggestions just like any other shows.

  • View recorded suggestions in the Suggestions group inside the My Shows list.
