Backup Season Pass, WishList

I have a new 'Basic' 4 tuner Roamio, after the HDD in my Premiere suddenly died. I also have a WD My Book external drive. I want to be able to save my Season Passes and WishList searches in case the Roamio's HDD packs it in (or the WD's). Will TiVo's Desktop Plus software for PC allow me to do this?

It is free and I used to configure my new boxes when I did not want to have to key in all SP's and WL's from the box I was replacing (over a 100).

Worked great for me.

TiVo can transfer your season passes online from one box to the other. While I agree that Desktop sucks, honestly, there's no software that compares to it out of the box. Sure, you might be able to 'tweak' a few other pieces of software to do the same thing, but realistically, you can't beat Desktop from an out of box experience
