Genie Recommends is nothing different than What's On or You Might Like :)

 

Both of which I never watch or like!!  The biggest joke is when "what's on" lists the shows you've chosen to record.  Or lists shows that are already over.

 

DirecTV receivers started this nonsense way back when I got an RCA receiver and it had "programming suggestions".  It also never came up with anything I liked.

Well, its almost November and I even did a guide flush last week (double reset) to see if Genie Recommends would record shows from any of the big four Prime Time networks and all I keep getting recommended are cable shows.

 

Is this how directv set this up, are any of you getting shows from the Prime networks being recommended?

Yes, among the first 8 "Genie Recommends" shows I see right now, I have 4 network prime-time shows, "Scandal," "Grey's Anatomy," "The Crazy Ones," and "The Millers."
