    I need to laugh at Genie because some of the stuff it records is just funny. I record The Newsroom on HBO. I was checking with Genie and it also records the same show, but in Spanish :). It is just funny on how off Genie can be.

    Genie is recording shows from Tvland like The Exes,Soulman and Hot in Cleveland that are not in my package line up (Mas Ultra) and when I click on to view it wont let me.

    All I get is a gray screen with the 30 minute scrub bar at the bottom.

    If Genie is going to bother recording and recommending said programs at least let me be avaible to view the shows.Who knows maybe I will like the shows and upgrade to a new package.

    A lot of the same here;

    I personally don't why I even leave "Genie Recommends" on. It never records anything even close to my viewing habits. Perhaps its just because it records them to the HDD partition that's inaccessible for subscriber recordings anyway so I don't really care.

    And there's always the remote chance that is may record something of interest to me, but so far after many months now since the feature's availability, nothing even close that I'm interested in watching....

    Not to be critical mind you, since I don't write code, but those who designed the GR selection algorithm pretty much failed from everything I can see.

    I'm hoping that Genie will pick up new shows for the fall season, but as for right now, its totally useless.
