    LOL OK I wasn't sure. I was having a senior moment.

    This was the thread I was talking about:

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=493023

    Yes, I know this is a short thread, and was never resolved, but its the best I had to go on. As the OP stated in that thread, perhaps I was trying something that was too far ahead, but that wasn't the case. I tried adding SP's for shows that are on today, and for some really weird reason, I can't get past 29.

    No, I do not have it set to keep all episodes of everything. I'm not like THAT GUY in the elusive and infamous TCF 9 year long thread. The box is currently at 30% capacity.

    I'm telling you, this is SO weird.

    Have you tried KMTTG or TiVo.com to create the season pass?

    The "all kinds of strange behaviors" remark was from memory of posts from 6 or 7 years ago. I have done some searching and found what I was referring to. My understanding is that KUID will reserve disk space for a program as soon as that program appears in the guide. Is it possible that if the OP has their season passes set to KUID that so much disk space is being reserved that no other season passes can be entered?

    I've never experienced KUID having an impact on having / creating a season pass. KUID does have a direct impact on the To Do list though. As your TiVo fills near capacity your To Do list will get shorter - starting from the furthest out dates. When capacity is reached your To Do list will be empty, but Season Passes will still be intact.

    Have you tried a reboot? Your process to resolve does not indicate that you have, and it is the one really simple thing that time and again can fix/address minor issues.

    I can submit from TiVo.com, but I don't get the confimation e-mail that it saved to the box. I get the e-mail that says it was submitted, but it won't save.

    The saga continues.

    Tried using one of the mobile device apps to see if they work or give a useful message?

    And that falls under the category of not understanding the logic of KUID

    If it did happen it would be another glitch rather than how it works.

    Actually, KUID can have an affect on the scheduler since it determines if there will be enough non-KUID space for a recording before it schedules it. It adds the space already in KUID recordings to the space it thinks will be tied up in KUID recordings made prior it the recording it is trying to schedule.

    What does this have to do with anything other than being more that falls under the category of not understanding the logic of KUID?

    I've been away from TiVo-community for a few years; have folks finally figured out a correct explanation for KUID?

    There have been lots of explanations of KUID over the years that I've seen, all of them, including mine, have had counter-examples presented for them (perhaps because they were attempting to explain a moving target - I'm pretty sure TiVo changed behavior early on.)

    What is the logic of KUID now?

    All I've been saying is that KUID doesn't cause strange behaviors. It causes behaviors that users don't understand because they don't understand why KUID does what it does.

    I understand the logic of KUID. While it does not actually allocate the space for future KUID recordings ahead of time, the scheduler does include that space in it's decisions.

    I should have gone on to say that possibly there is a bug in the SP logic wherein when it attempts to do the initial scheduling and cannot schedule any recordings due to calculated available space problems, rather than giving you a choice to cancel some scheduled recordings (which its what it does when it cannot schedule some of the episodes), it simply does not create the SP.

    It may also help to understand that the OP has already stated that KUID is not the problem.

    I was simply addressing the general issue of KUID space and scheduling and brainstorming the OP's issue. I've used KUID since I acquired my first TiVo and really haven't noticed any change in the logic. I'm mostly on your side in this argument. I've never seen KUID cause the problems that some people attribute to it.

    Be that as it may, I fear the only explanation of what is happening to the OP is that his XL4 has a partially farbled SP database.

    Yes, KUID is most definitely NOT the problem here, nor the HDCP handshake, nor the MoCA, nor the FiOS, nor the CIA, the NSA, the FBI.

    I would be willing to bet that if this was a problem with one of my TiVo HD's and posted in the Series 3 forum, there would be a thread full of people blaming a capacitor on the power supply.

    Thanks for the ongoing suggestions, I am going to try just leaving it unplugged for a little while over the weekend and starting it up again. I am at a loss over what to do here.

    This is just plain weird.

    C&DE may be only drastic option left to *perhaps* fix it.

    Theoretically, a KS57 or 58 might help, but I've never heard of any instance of it actually working.

    That'd be my guess. If it my my TiVo that was screwed up like that I'd bite the bullet delete all the SPs and then try a 'Clear program information & To Do List'

    Once that finished I'd try adding back the SPs. (Annoyingly this is summer any many of them may not be in the guide to add back)


    But losing all my thumbs data and having to readd every SP is a significant pain. (But not quite as bad as a clear & delete everything where I'd lose my recordings)

    Since it is a Premiere, he should be able to use kmttg to backup and restore his SP's. Thumbs are a different matter of course (I personally don't care about thumb ratings since I have suggestions turned off. I have a hard enough time keeping up with the stuff I explicitly record).
