TiVo Suggestions

TiVo Suggestions are personalized shows selected to match your preferences

  • From the data it compiles, TiVo suggests shows to you based on your viewing and Thumbs Up ratings

  • When set to record, suggestions automatically record when the TiVo has space available on the hard drive
