    They should be able to put the service back on the old box as I had the same issue. You will just need to call them when you setup the replacement and they will move the service again.

    Season Pass Manager needs both to be active so I used kmttg for the 1st time and it moved over all SP's and WL's without any issues.

    They made me start a new subscription and said I have to cancel within 30 days and can get a full refund. Otherwise I get a $75 cancellation fee if I wait longer.

    I had no idea what kmttg was so I searched it and tried it out. Wow that is so cool! New toy!

    I had Lifetime on my unit so moving it around was not an issue.

    kmttg is a nice little toy with many more features then just backup and restore of SP's.

    kmttg is the solution for season passes, for sure.

    But you will *ALWAYS* lose all your dozens, hundreds, or thousands of program ratings. And you will lose all your other settings, including what could be hours worth of setting up channels you get and don't, channels you want to turn off because you don't like, and those you want to make your "fav". And lots of other stuff (network settings, screen settings, preview preferences, video providers, sort orders, etc, etc).

    I have complained literally DOZENS and DOZENS of times to TiVo over the phone, in Emails, in surveys, in beta testing, via this forum, that they need to have an option for backup up these ratings and settings so we can store them off-box for restoration after hardware failure or upgrading. USB flash drive. Transfer to computer through network. Transfer to TiVo's servers through the Internet. SOMETHING!!!

    They could at LEAST provide an import/export API so that third parties could do it for them. I bet moyekj would jump on that in a heartbeat.

    Ug.

    OMG! That's the problem I have been having!? The TiVo tech support people didn't mention anything about it possibly being a known issue. I wonder if this will fix my problem.

    It hasn't locked up in the last 24 hours but I got home today and noticed it had rebooted (must of been from the software update) but no channels would come in. I got v53 or wierd other errors on all tuners. Even taking the Cable card out and back in didn't fix it. I restarted and now its fine.

    The new box comes Monday so will have to see if this locks up over the weekend.

    Well it hasn't frozen up to the point of needing to unplug it since the update. Now it freezes and becomes unresponsive then reboots itself. Still once a day it seems. Now I'm thinking its more a software issue. I guess I'll try the new one when it comes on Monday and hope it doesn't do the same thing.

    I have had issues with my premiere, when background tuners have to change channels on more than one tuner (while I watch live tv). It doesn't happen when I am watching a recorded program.
    Try setting up multiple recordings to happen simultaneously while watching live TV. AND, make sure that non of the new shows are on channels that the Tivo is currently set to.
    My display hangs with the remote unresponsive, ESPECIALLY when i respond to clear the channel change warning message on the screen.
