    Is there a way to modify the Season Pass channel without deleting it and re-creating with the correct channel?

    I repeated guided setup on my S3 and I got thru to "Getting Program Info" and it is stuck on "Preparing" for over an hour now. Should I wait or reboot?

    Not that I have found. It has been a painful process so far. Even more annoying for shows that aren't in season right now and can't add season passes for. I'm afraid I'll forget to re-add them when the shows start again.

    Probably, at this point (although hanging like that may be a harbinger of trouble to come), but what drove you to repeat all of GS instead of just making whatever changes were necessary?

    If you happen to have two Tivo's on your account, then you can use the web tool to copy them and it gives you an option to choose the channel (copy them and then copy them back...). That might work.
    Even if you don't do it this way, the web is probably the quickest way to make a lot of season passes.

    Also, another thing that you could try is kmttg. I haven't seen anyone try this, but you can download your season passes. They go to a text file. Then you can edit the text file to have the right channel numbers and station ID (the station ID might be hard to figure out, but if you already have one season pass on that station you can copy it.) Then upload them back to the Tivo. Again, I have never tried this, but if you have a LOT of season passes it might be worth it.

    I started a chat session with TiVo support in order to determine the best way to get my season passes to indicate the correct (new) channel. I was told there are only two options:
    1. Re-do guided setup in the hopes that corrects the channel numbers in my season passes
    2. Manually delete and the re-enter each of my 40+ season passes

    Here's the transcript from my chat session with TiVo support:

    I did reboot and everything went well, though it took over an hour.

    I did the GS because none of the new channels from TWC were showing up. It usually takes a day or two for my TiVo to pickup the new channels.

    FWIW, I believe the season passes *will* catch up after a redo of GS - but it takes a while (frankly, I'd give it up to 48 hours after redoing GS before deeming it a failure).

    You could use title wishlists with auto recording for this. Then once it starts recording set up a normal season pass.

    Thanks, will wait a few more day to see if the guide gets updated on its own. Most of our channels are in 1 thru 103 which are now in HD. I deleted season pass stuff. So can live with it overall.

    The tuning adaptor did the trick for me as far as getting the high def broadcasts. There were a couple of glitches. The TA was not activated at the TW end of things, even though the counter rep assured me it was all ready to go when I picked it up. A call to tech support got it activated. A reboot of the TA was necessary to get the HD to show up.

    The guide is also now updated, but I will have to redo the season passes manually. They did not switch over from the now defunct channels.

    This is one reason why I prioritize my SPs by day rather than as a jumbled list.
    If I had to redo them today, I could start with what I have listed under Wednesday and everything would be there and I wouldn't have to guess If I had found everything to redo so that I wouldn't miss recordings. I could do this over time rather than as a single time consuming event.

    That's very cool. What is the procedure you use to create the daily separators?

    You can create an auto record wishlist for a nonsense string of characters and then name the wishlist anything you want the separator to be. That's what I did. Another person in that thread bypassed the need to rename the ARWL by creating his wishlist searches for "Tuesday season passes" "Wednesday season passes" etc.

    Of course, this would mean you'd have to constantly rearrange your SP by what day a show is on.

    This would also mean you would have to actually *know* what day a program is on, which defeats part of the point of the TiVo software (that you can set a season pass then pretty much forget about it). Many TiVo users don't even know what *channel* a program is on, let alone what day it is on.

    And also now with the Roamio Plus and Pro having 6 tuners, it becomes less and less important to prioritize season passes.
