BUG: Changing Season Pass settings for a show modifies channel assignment

I just found an odd bug when modifying the season pass settings for a show.

Normally I setup a pass to include shows from a single channel (e.g. the HD version of a given network). That channel shows up in the title of the season pass. I had been able to change the setting for that Season Pass (e.g. change the "save until" setting) with no other issues.

Since the most recent update, if I change any setting in a Season Pass, the selected channel no longer appears in the title, and the pass starts including shows from all channels (HD and SD) on which it appears.

Note that I'm still using the SD menus, if that's an issue. I wonder if this is related to the feature in the latest update that changes how future shows in a given season pass are handled.

I assume you have the last update, 20.4.4, the all channels has been added for season passes in that update.

This happened to me as well, and I lost a recording because of it.

I previously had The Amazing Race with an hour & one half pad for when it was on after football. With the change to Friday night I removed that padding. The next episode did not record because the season pass tried to use the first CBS on the list, which was a low power station from a rarely used antenna.

I did not initially see any way to edit the existing season pass to only use a specific channel, so I deleted it and reentered it.

I also am using the SD menus.

Consider a wishlist for the amazing race- helps avoid the need for a new season pass for each season...

Huh? That's not what these members are reporting. I have a SP for Amazing Race, and it doesn't need changed between seasons, at least not for the last 5 seasons.

There appears to be a bug on Premiere's using SD menus where whenever you modify anything in a SP, the software also automatically sets the channel for the SP to "All Channels". This can lead to unfortunate results with the scheduling software such that it might pick the SD channel when the user wants HD, or picking the wrong channel if a user is OTA and between markets where they may get two broadcasts of the same network and the broadcast from one market might be less reliable than the other market.

It's clearly a bug resulting from unexpected behavior of the new "All Channels" option added in 20.4.4 when using SD menus. The impacts are limited to fringe cases, and will likely not make a difference for most users. I'd encourage the OP and others to contact Tivo support directly to inform them of this bug.

Yes, tatergator1, that's exactly what appears to be happening. Though I may differ with you about it being a fringe case. I'll contact TiVo support to report it...
