Any reason why I can't create a season pass using HD channels?
I just got my Roamio setup, cable card paired. all channels come in. I used the Tivo Season Pass manager to back everything up from my Premier so I thought all was good but I hadnt tried to put them on the Roamio.
So tonight I'm surfing and tune over to ScienceHD channel were Surviverman is on so I think, OK, I'm going to set a season pass to record it, when I do I notice the pass options that it's showing the channel as the SD channel, not the HD one (40 versus 742) so I double check to see and yes, I'm tuned to the HD channel so I back out and try it again, no luck only the SD channel will record a SP.
Thinking it might be a tuner problem, I go out to find Find TV, Movies & Videos and select search to find Survivorman and I find it, only for the SD channel (#40) yet in the search it had a little "HD" yet it will not let me change the SP to the HD channel??!?!?
I go online to the season pass manager, I can select the season pass from my Premier (were I have existing HD season passes for several HD channel and I select them to be put over to my new Roamio Tivo... Well, it works but all the season passes got converted to their SD channel equivalent!!
What good is this if I can't create a Season Pass using my HD channels?? What am I missing?? BTW - If create a wishlist and using "Survivorman" and select HD channels only, I get no results.
This a screencap of what the online pass manager at Tivo.com shows (and don't make fun of my "hick" season passes
...) The SD channels shown are the lower double digit channels, the HD are the three digit channels were this pic shows the online manager transfered them to SD!
Any ideas?? Is this something from my cable company provided guide restriction of some type?
