Yeah there is a way to turn of Tivo suggestions. I'm not at home so I
can't tell you exactly how to do it, but it's buried in those menu's
someplace. I have noticed that it does pick up some strange things as
"suggestions". I have been very happy with my Tivo. I enjoy my
television much more than I used to, and there is almost always
something to watch. I just wish I would have bought the 80hour
instead of the 40hour. I guess I will have to mod it.
