    My condo community association will be changing cable providers next month. The channel numbers are all changing.

    Will I have to re-do all my OnePasses one at a time or will TiVo update them automatically for me?

    Thanks.

    It depends, honestly. Local channels should follow to the new channels, obviously channel:any ones will move over just fine, but ones where channels were explicitly specified might have trouble if the new channels have different names in the system.

    Your best bet is to redo guided setup with the new system, force one or two service connections and check the list manually (or KMTTG if you want to see them all in a spreadsheet-style list)

    You can prevent some potential issues by just setting them to "all channels" if you're ok with it, I've never had an issue, but most will swap on their own with a redone Guided Setup.
    The one time "all channels" really comes in handy is if one system has a channel in SD only and the other has it in HD, that's the combo "all channels" eliminates as an issue.

    You would need to re-run Guided Setup to reflect the new source. Passes should update themselves, when it has the new data. You would need to confirm the channels and uncheck the ones with no signals, SD channels that have the same in HD.
