Once that is done, you can force a call to the TiVo service to re-download the program info, or you can just wait for the TiVo to call in automatically.
I was thinking of doing this before an MFS Backup, but was confused about one part... Season Passes. I want to KEEP my season passes, but don't care about keeping all the guide data and the current todo list.
I read some other threads that said "Clear Program Information & ToDo List" does delete the season passes. These were older threads (from 2006 and 2011 I think), so maybe it depends on the software version? Is this something that was changed at some point?
Assuming it keeps the season passes... then after the "Clear Program Information & ToDo List" and a call has been forced (or waited for the auto) and all post processing has been done, will all shows with season passes be re-added to the TODO list?
Assuming that's true, then it sounds like the only thing that should be different would be: wish lists need to be re-added and any manual
recordings need to be re-added. True or not?
