I thought you could check them all and move the whole group to another box? Am I wrong?

Yes, you can move an entire set of season passes. However, don't count on the order being preserved. In my experience you get all the passes transferred, just completely randomized.

What the previous poster was hinting at was if you make more than a couple of changes via the drag-and-drop interface, it seems most of them are discarded.

yes, this is true and still not fixed. About the only thing this app is good for is doing a mass transfer of your season passes from an old tivo to a new one. I have then found it easier to then re-arrange them on the tivo itself than online because the order will be random and it is not saving drag and drops

What is it doing better? Not doing every thing one at a time?

This tool still isn't working for me. I just attempted to make five changes, all of which were discarded.

Another abandoned half-completed feature from Tivo!

A backup feature could solve the issue of temporarily suspending Season Passes asked for in multiple other threads. Move the Season Pass into storage, then move it to another box or deactivate it from storage EVEN IF it's too early for upcoming new episodes to be in the guide.

Arrow Online Season Pass Manager Does Not Work

Too bad it does not work. I have several times, over a period of weeks, used the online system to delete various items from my season pass. The deletions never take effect on my Tivo box.

Deleting items from a season pass is a nightmare. Deleting even a single item on my Tivo box causes at least 30 minutes of downtime. You would think Tivo would know about the concept of multi-tasking.

How many season passes do you have? I have never had it take more then 1 or 2 minutes on any of my TiVos. I will admit even 2 minutes is painfully slow but 30 minutes is insane!

And sounds like an exaggeration...

I've got nearly 100 season passes & ARWLs and never have to wait over a couple of minutes. Even after rearranging the SP list and deleting a SP.
