    I thought it would be fun to get the conversation started about Genie Recommends. You're going to hear a lot more about it in the media, so let's get to talking!

    Personally I have a "most interesting man in the world" perspective on it. I don't always use Genie Recommends but when I do... it's great.

    My results haven't been great, but it has improved, and I LOVE that most of my recent Genie Recommends recordings have been Series/Season Premieres...

    I like that a lot! :)

    It took three weeks of monitoring before the Genie Recommendations began to be shows I would watch.

    But Genie Recommend recording often interfered with my live watching or schedule recordings. So I shut it off and have not look back.

    I vowed never to turn it on, but ended up doing so about 3 weeks ago. Never suggested a single show I had any interest in (and some that were so far away from anything I'd watch it was kind of funny), so I turned it off again last weekend.

    I've turned it off but it doesn't delete the shows it has recorded like it says it does! If I turn it back on 24hrs later all the shows reappear. Any help or recommendations?
