    I'm trying to create a Season Pass for Prison Break, however even though I've went through my channels and have taken channel 11 Fox, out of my channel line up, Season Pass still wants to record channel 11. I want channel 411 to record Prison Break, my HD affiliate but no matter what I do it only records channel 11. What am I doing wrong. Thanks.

    Season passes are channel specific. You need to create a season pass using an episode from the HD channel. Then delete the other season pass.

    Well now it's gotten even weirder. I canceled my original season pass of Prison Break and went to create a new season pass by going manually into the time and channel and specifically picked channel 411 and created the season pass. NOw when I go into the "to do" list it show Prison Break but still shows it to be recorded on channel 11, the SD channel. What gives. Is this a major bug.

    I've never heard of such a thing. Season passes are channel specific. Have you tried selecting the program in the guide on channel 411?

    Keep in mind it may take a few minutes for the To Do list to update any changes you make. If you cancelled the season pass on 11 and immediately created one for 411, the To Do List might still temporarily show 11. If you just got the Tivo, or just got a software update on your Tivo, schedule changes can also take longer to take effect because the Tivo is still indexing guide data in the background.

    To avoid scheduling recordigns from the wrong channel, you can remove the SD local channels from your guide under Settings -> Channels. If you remove the channels, the Tivo won't ever record from them.

    OP said that he already removed the SD channel from his lineup, but it stillscheduled it. Hopefully it was just the timing issue that you mentioned.

    Well the previous attempt didn't work, but I finally got it to record my HD channel 411. I had to manually go into the guide, then I had to go ahead 1 week and find Prison Break on channel 411, I then selected it and chose Season Pass. When I went into the To Do list it finally showed the correct channel I wanted to record. For some reason I only had to do this with Fox though. Oh well.
