    I tested it today and found worked for the most part with one exception.

    I was able to transfer 60+ Season Passes from a S2 Dual Tuner to a Tivo HD but only after unselected all Season Passes from Fox (Fox and Cablevision in dispute in NJ).

    What I found that if you dont remove channels that you no longer subscribe to the moving of the Season Passes will fail with an non descriptive error.

    This won't even allow me to rearrange online. If/when it works, it will be nice.

    Very nice feature! Will come in handy. Would like to be able to see and manipulate manual recordings and AWRLs on the list.

    Well mine transferred the season pass. Unfortunately the season pass doesn't see any of the programs as having upcoming episodes, even when there ARE upcoming episodes.

    Well, this sounds cool but all I can do is click the box to update my privacy level. It says it may take 24 hours to take effect so I can use the online service. I't been 4 days now and still stuck at the same screen.

    Transferring from THD to THD seems to work pretty quickly for me. This will be handy to have when I upgrade my drives, but I agree with the backup suggestion.

    is it too much to ask to keep the same order of your season passes when you transfer all from box 1 to box 2. now I have to manually drag and drop 33 season passes

    So not too happy with that gift horse, huh? Considering the alternative of manually recreating the Season Passes on box 2, I would think that the 30 seconds or so of dragging and dropping not being a big deal.

    except that if you try to more than 2 or 3 drag and drops it doesn't save them :mad:

    I thought you could check them all and move the whole group to another box? Am I wrong?

    Yes, you can move an entire set of season passes. However, don't count on the order being preserved. In my experience you get all the passes transferred, just completely randomized.

    What the previous poster was hinting at was if you make more than a couple of changes via the drag-and-drop interface, it seems most of them are discarded.

    yes, this is true and still not fixed. About the only thing this app is good for is doing a mass transfer of your season passes from an old tivo to a new one. I have then found it easier to then re-arrange them on the tivo itself than online because the order will be random and it is not saving drag and drops

    What is it doing better? Not doing every thing one at a time?

    This tool still isn't working for me. I just attempted to make five changes, all of which were discarded.

    Another abandoned half-completed feature from Tivo!

    A backup feature could solve the issue of temporarily suspending Season Passes asked for in multiple other threads. Move the Season Pass into storage, then move it to another box or deactivate it from storage EVEN IF it's too early for upcoming new episodes to be in the guide.

    Too bad it does not work. I have several times, over a period of weeks, used the online system to delete various items from my season pass. The deletions never take effect on my Tivo box.

    Deleting items from a season pass is a nightmare. Deleting even a single item on my Tivo box causes at least 30 minutes of downtime. You would think Tivo would know about the concept of multi-tasking.
