Perhaps someone can educate me here as well, I was under the impression that the thumbs up/down feature helped the tivo learn your profile, but also would default to record those shows if nothing else was scheduled, I have seen many times when I tune in to find it recording something with no relevance that I can see, while a new episode of something I have given 3 thumbs up to is not being recorded. Now I know I can force it to record something by getting a seasons pass or selecting it individually, but shouldn't my tivo, opt to record something on the suggestion list that has 3 thumbs up over something random? Or am I misunderstanding how this works?

You're misunderstanding. "Thumbs Up" does not mean "record this if nothing else is available." It means "I like this show. Please suggest it and things like it occasionally."

"Three Thumbs Up" means "This show has an electrode attached directly to the pleasure centers of my brain. Please suggest it and things like it occasionally."

Is your TiVo freezing or crashing?
