Does anyone have any ideas of how to fix the Now Playing list problem I describe below?
To recap, I ran "Clear program information & To Do List", because I was having lock-ups that I thought might be database related. (Turned out to be a bad power supply).
This operation preserves the Now Playing list and Season Passes, but the database "links" are broken. For instance, if you try to "view upcoming episodes" it will say "there are no upcoming episodes". But if I record the show new from the guide, it will find the upcoming episodes. All the Season Passes show "no upcoming episodes" unless I create a new season pass. I can't save thumb ratings on the old shows, only on the new shows.
New shows won't group with the old shows.
I have a huge list of old shows and would like to get the data re-linked. Does anyone know a way to do that?
Thanks in advance

1) you can press Thumbs up or down, but the rating won't save;
2) you can choose More Options - View Upcoming Episodes and it will say "no upcoming episodes" for every show
3) you can choose Swivel Search, but the title won't get transferred to the search and you end up with a fresh search screen where you have to enter the title.
4) Newly recorded shows won't be grouped with old shows.
I can save thumb ratings on new shows or shows in the guide, but not on old saved shows of the same title.
I tested transferring a show from another TiVo, and it got grouped with the old shows, and also does not allow me to save Thumb Ratings.
It seems that even though the metadata seems to exist, it is somehow crippled behind the scenes for grouping, ratings, upcoming episodes and swivel search.
Does anyone have an idea how to fix or merge the data from the existing Now Playing list?
