Question Saving and Reloading Season Pass and/or Wishlists

Is there a way to save Season Pass lists and/or Wishlists to my computer or somewhere online for the Roamio Plus? I'm about to replace my faulty Roamio Plus with a new same model having a blank disk, so I need a way to save these data where I can get to it later.

I saw an online Season Pass Manager at tivo.com but that doesn't include Roamio and doesn't seem to persist the data, just transfer between two live boxes on the same local network.

I have also heard that kmttg can do it, but I did save the .sp file (as well as export the .csv for a readable version) and did a test. I deleted a season pass item and then did a load of the .sp but the item did not come back. I tried multiple times. Maybe I did it wrong, any advice is welcome.

Please guide me to a way to do this, I have a ton of stuff I don't want to lose.

thanks much,

Tivo.com SP Manager does work for Roamio. However, all Tivo need to have Tivo Service to work, not the complimentary few days of service. After you get them subscribed, your Tivo needs to connect to the service to get things working.

The program kmttg will allow you to export your Season Pass list to your computer, and then restore it to the new Roamio.

See Wiki page for how to use kmttg Season Pass store/restore. After loading previously saved SPs you need to select individual ones in loaded table and use the "Copy" button to copy them to a TiVo. For full SP restore you would simply select all entries after loading SP file and click on "Copy" button - that's how to copy all saved SPs to a new TiVo.

Question Save & Restore Wishlists via computer back to Tivo

Is there a way to save a Tivo Wishlist to the computer and restore it back to the Tivo after doing Clear & Delete Everything?

I have cTivo, kmttg, and pyTivo all working, but haven't yet seen that any of these can save wishlists.

(Thanks for teaching me how to do this for Season Passes using kmttg.)

You might want to put some steps here for others to find in the future. IIRC, saving SPs & WLs in kmttg is one of the things that's fairly unintuitive in kmttg.
