What's up with these unwanted "MANUAL" Recordings ?

Recently my DVR List began to show "MANUAL" recordings of shows that I did not request. Where is that coming from? The shows bear no resemblance to my viewing history so if this is a "feature" it is clearly NOT working to the user's benefit!

I have posted previously regarding some of the issues I have with the DVR/LIST software ever since ATT absorbed DirecTV, but this one is a new and particularly irritating change. Whomever came up with this idea in ATT/DTV management needs to be shown the door as soon as possible.

You or someone set them up not DTV.

While all providers collect anonymous viewer data they don't care what you watch.

Wow - quick response, but I'm sorry, Shannon, in spite of your "ace" rating you know NOT of what you speak. As the only user of this system I'm pretty sure I know who is requesting recordings here - and it is not me.

Rather than dismiss this legitimate complaint out-of-hand, I would expect an "ace" to sit back and see how widespread this DVR behavior is.

I’ve never heard of a DVR scheduling it’s own manual recordings nor have I ever seen anyone else post such behavior. So, how widespread is it? Appears to be only you. How about some specific examples.
