DTivo not so smart after all?

I've now had my DTivo for 18 months. It certainly has changed the way we watch television.

Lately, it seems Tivo is distracted (perhaps by the springtime weather, and the hot looking new DVD player in the entertainment cabinet). I'm surprised that after a year, it isn't doing a better job of learning our likes and dislikes.

For example, last year I had a season pass to Monk. I had deleted the Season Pass after the season ended. When the new season rolled around I would have thought Tivo would have known that I had had a season pass in the past (or at least some indication that I had watched it repeatedly) and had decided on its own to record Monk.

Sigh.

Is anyone else's Tivo smarter than mine? Maybe it is still young...

John

If you wanted Monk, why did you delete the season pass?

Would it have had space to make a Monk Suggestion? Suggestions can never make room for theirselves by deleting something.

I believe someone here once said that you should use wishlists, not suggestions.

More to the point he shouldn't be deleting season passes and then expecting the season pass to still work. I didn't delete my Monk season pass, and its recording new ones quite happily.

I think there's a basic disconnect with the original poster, in that "Season Passes" don't apply to just one season, but all seasons.

I fully understand that I could have kept my Season Pass to continue having Monk show up when the new season began.

It's just that I'm a little surprised that TiVo didn't choose to record it along with many of the other items it records every day. For example, TiVo seems to record The X-Files fairly regularly, even though I've never given it a thumbs up or down.

There is plenty of space for Tivo suggested items to show up.

I guess I'm just curious about the algorithm used to decide what gets recorded as a TiVo Suggestion.

If I was done watching a show for good, and tivo kept recording it I would be more upset.

The fact that the algorithm saw you didn't want the show should be a good thing.

Hmm -- I hadn't thought of it that way, but now that I do -- you might be exactly right!
