    Hello I upgraded my hard drive today and to my surprise all my season passes were intact. Does anyone know how that happened? Thanks.

    They are saved on the TiVo server and copied back down when you install a new hard drive.

    Unfortunately, as TiVoPony says in that post I linked to:

    So you'll have to set everything up again. Using can help speed that up, as can the Slide remote or a wireless USB keyboard for faster data entry. For the shows that aren't currently airing, you'll have to create WishLists until they show up in the Guide Data again.

    If you only have one DVR, the following recommendation won't help but I thought it still would be useful to have the info out there in case someone follows up on this later.

    If you have more than one DVR, you can use the Remote Scheduling app's Season Pass Manager to create them on another box.

    Hypothetical situation:
    If the OP had two boxes, and the box that had C&DE on it had not yet called in, the server wouldn't wipe the SP list. They could be copied to the second box, then the C&DE box could call in to sync. Once it had wiped out the online copy of the list, he could move them back from the second box.
