    I used the tivo season pass transfer a few days ago. I kept getting errors when trying all my 120 season passes. When I only selected about 30 they all went thru ok.

    I had this problem with my wife's too. Again kmttg transferred my 90 or so SPs without a hitch. I'd never used it before yesterday but it really is a great program for this. Will have to play with some of it's other functionality.

    When I got my Pro was the first time I used kmttg also! It didn't see my Pro for the longest time, so I ended up using TiVo.com to move the Season Passes over. I guess I got lucky, they all came across with no issues.

    That Pro died, so when my replacement arrives, if kmttg sees it immediately, I'll try using that this time. :)

    TiVo.com is still a no-go for me, it just doesn't show any season passes on my old unit. It does show season passes under the Roamio that I setup by hand. I still have like 60 to go though. :p

    I'll look into KMTTG.

    Thanks!

    Holy crap, KMTTG is awesome! I was able to transfer all but 1 season pass.

    Thanks!

    I transferred 57 season passes from my Series 3 to my Roamio Pro using the website. No problem at all, other than the way it scrambles the order. (Now with 6 tuners, I'm not worried about the order, but my girlfriend insisted that I put them all back in order.) Slow as molasses changing the order of them on the website (although maybe not quite as bad as changing them on the Series 3, LOL) but it was convenient to have the new/old lists side-by-side while I did so.

    I very slightly disagree, even with 6 tuners.. even more so with 4 tuners.. (I technically have 6 tuners now, spread across a Premiere 4 and a Tivo HD.. and am thinking of consolidating to the middle Roamio).

    Since cable channel shows are rerun typically, and broadcast shows aren't (not soon/reliably), necessary padding can "use up" more tuners than you think.

    E.g. if you happen to be recording 3 shows 8-9 an 3 shows 9-10, and all need padding, that's really needing all 6 tuners.

    I still notice clipping happening on my P4.

    I still agree it's much less of an issue than with even fewer tuners... but I don't think it's completely a non-issue.

    It's much, much, much faster changing the SP order on the actual Roamio or through a Mini connected to the Roamio.

    Yes, I noticed that when adding some new ones. (After I had changed all my old ones on the website. *SIGH*)
