    I have several recordings dating back to 2005 that I always transfer when I buy a new Tivo, and I routinely set these to KUID.

    On my Roamio Plus, I am unable to set about half of these copied recordings to KUID. No matter how many times I select KUID, their icons remain blue and refuse to change to green.

    Has anyone else noticed a failure of the Roamio Plus/Pro to set KUID?

    I haven't tried KUID on my Romaio Pro yet. I'll need to try it out tonight.

    Have you tested it on recordings made on the Pro? I thought the Premiere had a similar issue with transferred recordings when it first came out.

    Yes, KUID works correctly on all new recordings and about half of the transferred recordings. That just leaves me with the other half of transferred recordings which don't respond to the KUID request.

    Try rebooting the TiVo. Could just be a display issue.

    Tried that already. A reboot doesn't change the behavior.

    I'm seeing this too on my Basic. All the transferred recordings are blue. At first I thought that meant that the transfer didn't happen.

    The HDUI only has 3 icons. Blue, Yellow and Green. Blue is normal, Yellow is expired and capable of being deleted if space is needed (same as yellow exclamation in SDUI) and Green is KUID.

    LOL - Took me a few minutes to figure out what they were talking about.

    Whether created on the host Tivo or transferred, recordings should appear with a blue icon until they age to the point of acquiring the yellow icon, which means they are eligible to be deleted.

    My issue is that I cannot set KUID on a seemingly random set of transferred recordings. No matter how many times I select KUID, the icon does not change.

    Were they KUID on the source TiVo? All of mine were.

    Lots of acronyms to keep track of on these forums. :)

    If you still have the source TiVo you should try changing one of them to not KUID on the source, then transfer it again and see if that makes any difference.

    Yes, all the recordings from were set KUID on the source Tivo box.

    You guys, and gals, having trouble... are your source TiVos S3 or HD units? Or do you have a Premiere?

    That would be a good test, but my source Tivo is no longer available. I also speculated that perhaps the KUID-failure recordings were corrupt in some way, but they all seem to play correctly.

    My source was a Premiere XL4 and the destination was a Roamio Plus.

    Some of the recordings are very old, and were originally recorded on either an S2, HD, or S3. So the oldest recording has traveled at least three times. :)

    I had this issue with some transferred recordings too. I'm not sure what caused it, but if I deleted and recovered the recordings, the KUID option would start working.
