    I remember reading something about season passes being stored on the tivo server IF you are using kidszone or a GuruGuide. There have been reports of season passes magically reappearing after clear & deletes, hard drive changes etc.


    IF that's true.......

    I ordered a free series 2DT, 80 hour, to replace my series 2, 40 hour. Is there anyway to use this "feature" to transfer my season passes?

    I was thinking, if i turn on kidszone/guruguide on the 40 hour now so my season passes will upload to the tivo server, then do a TSN switch when the DT arrives, and wait for the season passes to download?

    How would that work since to keep my 6.95/month and get the tivo free, I signed up for the 3 year monthly plan? Money wise I intend to cancel the 40 hour and keep my "3 year" commitment.

    The transfer of TSN can't happen as the DT has service activated on it.

    Thanks. I was hoping that swapping the TSN on the website would work.... Might try it anyway, just to see.

    Not sure what you mean about "swapping the TSN." The TSN is tied to the box itself, you can't change it.

    The 'verse
    That would only affect the billing. The Tivos TSN remains the same forever.
