    I've had to recreate SPs. The problem seems to be the
    SeriesObjID number changing in the guide data.

    To find the faulty SPs, I went to the bottom of the ToDo
    list. The SPs that have 'no upcoming programs' are
    suspicious if you -know- that there is a new episode
    coming up. This has helped me focus on those SPs
    that were fouled up due to bad guide data from DTV.

    My Series 2 started having the problem of not recording Local News via Season Passes about 2 months ago. I just looked here and see it has happened to others. Frankly, this thread was hard to read and I skipped many comments due to the "off topic" discussion.

    I have tried and done everything I can think of except doing a clear and delete which I do not want to do ( dont want to lose some old programs).

    Question: Has anyone that lost Season Passes Recordings of local News Programs found a method that allows season pass recordings of local news programs?

    You failed to mention what software version you were running. They changed how the software would record shows with 6.4a. If you are not running 6.4a that could be the problem.

    I am running 6.2. Now I need to figure out how to force an update on my Phillips Series 2. Thanks!

    If you're running 6.2, just set your Season Pass to record all shows (including duplicates) and you won't have any problems with your News shows.

    I have tried that numerous times. The only thing left to try is a clear and delete or upgrade software.

    No matter what I do, O'reilly will not record on a season pass on FoxNews.
