    I have one 30 minute program on a small SD station that will not allow me to Create a Season Pass and after I record it , I cannot create an Auto-Transfer either. For all other programs from this same station both facilities work - Any ideas what's going on here?

    TiVo is Series 3 Model TCD652160 with Product Lifetime Service.
    Input source is coax antenna in.
    Software Version 11.0n.K1-01-652.
    No cable cards OTA Only.

    Station is on channel 16-1, but as I said this one program is the only one that seems to offer these problems, all other programs tha tI record on this station can be set and are set to record by Season Pass and three of them are set to Auto-Transfer.

    PC is a Dell Optiplex 790 with 12 GB of RAM running Windows 10 Ver 2004 OS Build 19041.388.

    TiVo Desktop version 2.8.2 (412369).

    That has a security certificate that has expired, unless you have updated it from this forum.

    Also Win 10 updates can unregister TD.

    How can I update the security certificate?

    Search did not tell me how.

    It is hard to find since the title used does not contain desktop or certificate.

    You don't have to use Tivo Desktop, its outdated now, tivo no longer supports it.

    Alternatives are KMTTG, PyTivo. KMTTG has lots more features than TD.

    Would upgrading to Desktop 2.8.3 help?

    I'm not sure the security certificate is the problem because as I thumb through all the recordings on the TiVo with TiVo Desktop, that is the only program that does not have the "Auto-Transfer This Series button pop up at the top of the list. I did find one recording of the Marx Brothers' A Night in Casablanca that did the same thing, but it is a movie and not a series.

    I think the problem may be the metadata for this program indicates it is a one time program not a series, so I cannot set a Season pass and I can't set an Auto-Transfer.

    I'm going to email the station and see if they can or will fix that.

    Copy protection is not the issue since you are OTA.

    I can record the program and can manually copy it to my PC with TiVo Desktop, so I do no believe it is a copy protection issue.

    It looks like the entire series of programs guide data tells my TiVo that it is a one time program.

    I found several other shows (Handel's Messiah and A Capital Fourth 2020 and several others that were specials on PBS) that were non-series type (specials) that also failed to display the Auto-Transfer button when high lighted in TiVo Desktop.

    Can you just transfer, not auto-transfer?

    Sounds like you found the issue. What show is this?
