    Hello, all! I've started having a weird problem over the last couple of weeks--my Tivo will not record a Season Pass program and, when I go into the recording history to see what happened, gives the message saying that someone in my household didn't allow it to change channels.

    The problem is that I'm the only person in my household and have never been anywhere near the TV when it decided not to record! Any ideas about what might be up? I've tried rebooting the Tivo and it didn't seem to have any effect. There's not any consistency about which programs it decides not to record, either, and it's continuing to get some season pass programs without any problems at all.

    My Tivo is a Series 2 and my cable provider is Comcast...thanks for any advice, it will be much appreciated!

    Try putting the Series2 into standby then the DVR will not ask if it can change channels.

    I'm guessing that you somehow implemented the parental controls on the Tivo, look there and turn them off if they are on.
