DVR recorded shows not requested

We have a standard definition DirecTV DVR R15-300 that has recently started recording shows we did not request. For the past couple days we have had to delete 4-6 hours of unrequested shows. It is recording our requested shows but for some reason is now recording a bunch of weird stuff we don't want. Any idea what may be causing it?

We have an RF remote for the whole-house Dish. The neighbor also has one. We used to be able to change each others' TV channels until I changed the frequency of transmitter & receiver.

Or, got kids that like to play tricks?

We have no children and no neighbors other than deer and coyote with RF remote range. It is quite perplexing. I have noticed that Disney shows/series are appearing in the to do list for recorder. Other shows are also being recorded but only Disney shows are magically appearing in the to do list.

I was cruising around the Direct troubleshooting forums.
Many problems with those DVR's but only one came close to yours and it mentioned something about turning off the Tivo suggested shows setting.

I'm not sure if that refers to ... if you are using Tivo with your Direct DVR or the DVR itself uses a Tivo like "suggested sites" application.
