Reminders I did not set

Reminders I did not set

I have reminders for things I did not set coming up.  I live alone, no one else has been in the house, there is no way these have been accidentally set.  Is there a way to turn this off?  I'm assuming it's X1 trying to be "helpful".  For example, a reminder for Legends of Tomorrow came up yesterday.  However, when I looked at the show in the program guide (info button) it didn't show that I had one set.  And just now I had one come up for the BUZZR Tribute to Monty Hall.  This is very annoying.  This is premiere season, I don't need reminders coming up for shows I don't watch or don't care about.  I'll have enough reminders for the shows I do want to watch.

     Go into your settings and turn notifications/reminders off.

Re: Reminders I did not set

All,

 

Sorry for the confusion. Turning off notifications in the settings will not suppress program reminders. You can manage/turn off scheduled reminders from the Saved/Scheduled menu by toggling the view: filter to reminders (it defaults to recordings). 

 

We hope this helps. If you have any additional questions about this feature, please don't hesitate to let us know here.

are you by chance in an apartment or condo? a MoCA filter may be missing on your connection.

Re: Reminders I did not set

Reagrding MoCa fiters - I am in a condo.  This hasn't been a problem before though.  I'll ask around though.  Thanks for the suggestion.


Regarding Saved/Scheduled/Reminders - the shows I mentioned are not listed there.  I'm thinking these are only the ones I set, and not the ones I didn't set that I am getting.
