    Is there a way to move season passes, wishlists, and thumb ratings to a new DirectTiVo? I'm thinking about getting an HR10-250 for the living room, which will replace a Samsung SD D*TiVo, but it would be nice if I can just backup the season pass/etc info and copy it to the new unit. The current box is hacked and is running 6.2.

    Thanks

    Yes, there is a TWP module called "backup".

    I completely missed that. So I can create a backup and then just upload it to the new unit?

    edit: Just tried to create a backup using TWP and I get an internal server error:

    Code:
    INTERNAL SERVER ERROR
    --cut here--
    action_backup_create_write '' 'set "fname" "/var/hack/tivowebplus/backups/settings";set "submit" "Create";'

        while executing

        invoked from within
    "transaction {uplevel $body}"
        (procedure "RetryTransaction" line 5)
