    Yep, just like everything else about how a person chooses to use their Tivo, it has its pros and cons. Ever delete a recording? you defeated the purpose of the Tivo software.
    Everything you need to know about a program is right there on the screen at the time you set up the SP. I assume that when you say "constantly rearrange" you mean that once in a while you may have to manage your season passes. They gave us the Season Pass Manager for that very purpose. If you want to set and forget, that's your choice, others manage their SP list with very little time or effort involved. And like I said in my first post here, doing this would make having to recreate all of your SPs (should it ever be necessary) a less daunting task because it could more easily be done a few at a time.

    Similar problem to HowHH since the channel switchover by Time Warner: no HD. However, since I only have "Basic Cable" I've never needed the Tuning Adapter, just a cablecard. I'm starting to think my only option is to get a TA, since everyone at TW seems baffled by my problem. Anyone else running into this?

    No, my old XL4 gets the HD locals just fine with just an un-paired cablecard.

    I'm in Buffalo, NY and my TiVo on TWC does work with the HD-remapping.

    If I try to view an SD version of a local network affiliate, I can't. I automatically get the HD version. So I get the HD version on 2 numbers... ie: 2 and 702.

    We're set to get the new lineup in a few weeks.

    Update: Apparently Time Warner did something good overnight Sunday, because all is well. I have HD on the "low" channels (6,8,10, etc.) and the 1200 series equivalents. Just in time for "Agents of SHIELD".

    We got the new channel numbers on October 22. It took me a couple of hours to get back to where I was. Did the Guided Setup to get the new channel lineup, and then had to redo the Season Passes since they were still in terms of the old channel number and had to be reentered one by one.

    So we just went through the major TWC lineup change in Columbia, SC. I had to rerun guided setup and manually recreate my season passes, which was all loads of fun (sarcasm). At first, I appeared to be getting all of the channels in HD, but now a week later, I'm only getting SD. Is this potentially a tuning adapter issue, or is there something else that I'm missing? Thanks

    @kmilledge Had the same TW surprise line-up change. Had to go through the same process. Now that my season passes are 90% back to normal, I wondered about the HD/SD. TW claims that they have enabled an Auto HD:

    I now record my SPass programs on the lower channels (2, 4, 6, etc) and they come out HD. I don't know how reliable this is for all channels but so far so good. TW still has specific HD channels on 1200 (ABC), 1203 (NBC), etc, but you shouldn't have to use those. No visible difference between the higher and lower channel options. I'm also using a tuning adapter. Hope that helps.

    I presume that means they simply changed the channel mapping.

    Has anyone found that the SP's will update to the new channel a few days after redoing guided setup?

    I got the new channels yesterday, did guided setup earlier today, and the SP's are still on the old channels. Wondering if I should just start deleting / recreating them on the new channels or if I should give it a few days.

    I think I misspoke in the statement you quoted above. Technically, I was correct -but not in this instance. If they just shuffle the channel lineup and you do a new Guided Setup, then yeah, the season passes should update themselves.

    However, in this case, not only did they shuffle the channel lineup, the actual callsigns changed (they dropped the "HD" indicators), and I don't think the season passes will be able to update themselves.

    If you had any season passes for the non-HD channels, then those almost certainly should update themselves. Season passes for the HD channels, though, will probably need to be corrected manually.

    This was my experience.

    Every HD SP had to be redone manually because the HD was dropped from the call sign.
