    This is some SERIOUS STUFF. I have relied on my Tivo for over 10 years now I no longer trust it. I have about 10 shows a week and a friend who watches General Hospital. Suddenly NOTHING on "to do list" AT ALL. "RECORDING HISTORY" part of to-do list reveals nothing. In fact, I went in and individually asked for tonight's shows since tonight is TV-heavy. The season pass part of my TO DO LIST still shows all of those programs as "NONE SCHEDULED."

    I have to delete all of these season passes and re enter them? More importantly, how do I ever trust this thing again?

    I had to run the guided setup again. Once I did that all of my season passes started working again.

    I am pretty sure the cable company changed something on their end that broke them.... The guided setup resolved it.

    I just wanted add to the solutions in the event someone is like me and none of the solutions on this thread work.

    I was able to connect to Tivo Service but everytime it would succeed, the status would say, "Pending Restart". If this is the case, go to:
    If you have any error here, you need to remove your ntwork connection. Either unplug your ethernet cable or disconnect from the WiFi. Wait 3 days and reconnect.

    This worked for me. My To-Do list actually showed up and all the missing information (upcoming episodes, etc) reappeared. Hope this helps someone.

    After over a year with no activity, plus several firmware changes, I don't think this is a problem anymore. :)

    I'm getting this same issue on my Series 3 today.

    Thanks from posting a possible solution.

    I have the same problem. I tried a guided setup and after finished when I choose 'guide' on the peanut the vast majority of channels show as "to be announced". Nothing that I have in my season's pass is recording (nor in history) except for local channels. Previously recorded shows can still be watched but nothing new.

    Choosing 'info' returns "no information"

    Find Program by title does not find, for example, "American Pickers" on History channel even though I can view it.

    I did network diag's and no errors. I have done tive connection and it has not helped.

    How can I force a program update?

    Answering my own question, after a lot of reading on Tivo troubleshooting.
    I re-ran the guided setup and for cable plan I chose "I don't know" and after completion my seasons pass selections and to-do lists are back. And I have a list of channels that my cable plan does not allow so I will have to go through the whole thing again and uncheck unauthorized channels that Tivo thinks I get.

    Be nice if Charter & Tivo would keep each other updated.

    jfh Did Charter in your area just go digital. I had similar problems for a while after they went digital here but it is getting better...

    I have two new roamios and found that any channel that does not show a description will not allow to be selected for a season pass. I can do a manual setup or a wish list but I find it weird that just because there is no description it will not allow a season pass. What is weird is that other programs on that same channel WILL allow a season pass to be set. It is just one show at 10pm (10 O'clock News) that will not show a description and will not allow to be setup in a season pass.

    I believe that the reason TiVo won't create a season pass is because the entry created by Tribune Media doesn't contain a series ID. I've found several programs that have descriptions but nevertheless don't allow season passes. (I am presuming you meant program and not channel above.)

    I would be curious how the "no description" is shown on Zap2It. And why a Premiere thread is being used and not the Roamio thread. I don't care, but it seems less efficient.
