My Genie was meant for NHL, NFL, HBO, Starz, Cinemax, and Showtime. I check my list....I see Top 10 Clint Eastwood Films, Switchfoot Concert, and children's shows and I know I'm not recording all that. Anyone have issues with the Genie like this???

What "List" would that be though?

 

Even with GR turned on those recorded shows shouldn't be displayed under "My PlayList," but under "My DIRECTV" sub-category "Genie Recommends." 


DIRECTV sub. since Sep. of '95

Are you in an apartment building or single family home?

What's probably happening is that someone else in another apartment is sharing in your "whole home" system and is setting up these recordings. You need to contact whoever manages your MDU system and get them to isolate apartments from each other for whole home operatioon.

do these recordings have a name like [Living Room] before the name of the actual show when you look on the list?


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

If you only have one HDDVR (the Genie) there should be no names [location] showing at all unless there is another HDDVR (your neighbor) that is "accessing" your WHDVR network as texasbrit mentioned on pst #7
