    My Tivo Premier is about to lose it's drive I think. It seems to hang up occasionally on recordings, I can kick it out to live tv, fast forward (skip 15mins) past the area and then rewind to 1-2mins after the hangup and continue.

    At any rate, if I get Tivo to repair it or if I get a new unit, is it possible to backup and restore settings? I don't want to re-program all my season passes and wish lists or up/down settings, etc.

    You can use kmttg to save your season passes and to restore them on the new tivo.

    Didn't know it had that capability. Since I have multiple Tivos I just used the Tivo.com capability to move the passes from one to the other and back again whenever I wanted to change drives.

    Does kmttg retain wish lists, thumb ratings, and SP priorities in its backup? These are my three gripes about using TiVo.com's migration method.

    Have you given any consideration to using the existing free tools to replace the drive yourself? That is the only know method (aside from paying someone else to do it) that will retain everything, including CableCARD pairing.
