    If there is a fix my recorder doesn't know about it. At first, all my season passes for Monday 1/22 were properly listed, including Studio 60 which hasn't had a new episode for weeks.
    Yesterday The Class and 2 1/2 Men on 1/22 were missing because "someone in my household....". Maybe it would fix itself in a few days but I decided to set it to record the shows myself.

    This morning my To Do History was showing some shows not scheduled to record on one of my DVRs, when they were there yesterday. I recommend everyone do one more restart to force an indexing... Per my System Info page, the date of my last indexing was Friday, when it should have showed a more recent date/time. I restarted all of my DVRs just to play it safe ... everything looks current again.

    Same experience here. After a restart/indexing, all looks as it should here. But then again, it has recently looked correct at times, only to go to hell again. So we'll see, I guess.

    I've had the same issues as everyone -- set up in the To Do list to record, then the "Someone has modified..." message afterwards. Reacquiring the data seemed to fix the problem since House recorded this week, but for some reasons Thursdays just aren't working.

    So...is there a way to test whether this has been fixed without losing yet another week of shows? I was planning to simply set up a manual record for all my Thursday night shows (thank you, NBC and ABC for putting them on iTunes!), but how will this work if I also delete and re-enter my Season Passes to see if they're working now?

    For the 3rd time now I had a season pass record the wrong channel wrong show. This non-sense is just beyond reason. Why they can't fix this ASAP is pure incompetence.

    """""HEADS UP 24 FANS"""""

    Checked this morning and my SP for 24 had been deleted. I rescheduled and just checked it again before leaving for work and it's gone! This is total BULLS**T, I work tonight and I'm afraid It's going to dump it again.

    Manual recording is your friend, when Tivo/DTV isn't.

    My 24 Season Pass recorded just fine. It had previously disappeared from the To-Do list, but it reappeared, and all is well.

    Both my 24 and Rome SP's STOPPED in the middle of the shows and came up with "do you want to delete?" messages!!!???!!! Luckily, I was watching close to live and manually recorded the rest of each show. I feel bad for those who will look to watch both shows and find the problem too late!!! My HR-10 also "froze" yesterday and did not record the Rangers/Bruins game!!! This all started once I got 6.3b this week!!! What the feck is D*TV doing!!!!!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    While I do experience the season pass problem, I have never had a shortened recording (knock on wood).

    since getting my HR20, i let my g/f use the HR10 to record her shows and she tried setting up a season pass for American Idol (premier is tomorrow) on the OTA fox channel (5.1 - nyc). hours later and multiple reboots and it still isn't showing in the to do list. i thought the temporary fix was in place?

    I'm on the phone with them right now...

    I got nothing...

    They said they are aware of the problem and the last update they have is from the 11'th and it says Tivo and DirecTV is working on the problem. A special tech may try to call me to resolve my issue. Blah blah blah...

    The good news is that I haven't had an SP foobar since last Friday. Everything is in the guide and looks good, for now.

    On a positive note, I did get 6.3b today.

    Can someone explain what was done to fix this issue? I'm pretty sure it isn't fixed for me. 24 and Desperate Housewives didn't record last night and I'm getting the message in the todo listing indicating someone changed the season passes. This morning, I asked Tivo to record tonight's episode of 24. I got the partial recording issue. It stopped recording after 11 minutes. I'm on 6.3b

    Is there something I have to do to get this fix? My understanding is that it is a data fix that comes directly from the Sat and I shouldn't have to do anything. Thanks

    This isn't fixed for me, either. I've been monitoring my To Do List closely, but had stopped re-indexing my guide data for the past day or two to see if there was a working fix. Today I noticed that although my guide data goes through January 26 and the Season Pass list included shows that were scheduled to be recorded on the 25th and 26th, my To Do List ended on January 22.

    I forced a daily call (and re-indexing) and have 'updated' each of the Season Pass shows so that they have a single check rather than a double check. This added them back to my To Do List, but I think that careful monitoring of the list is still in order.

    You should send this info to the TV Predictions guy (item above somewhere...) who did the item on the fix being in place as of last Friday. His column is widely seen.

    Add me to the list of people with this season pass problem. 6.3b has seemingly solved the audio dropout and hopefully the reboot problems. But know I see that my season passes are not going to record. I did a guide update a forced phone call, cleared and reenetered most of my season passes, without much luck. I did notice that after the 19th the ota programs are showing up on upcoming episodes. Does anyone feel like there wasting valuable time here. Thanks

    This is so frustrating. I too am missing shows that I know the season pass should have recorded.

    My girlfriend is frustrated about missing her shows, and now I don't trust directv. I guess I will be looking at switching to Dishnetwork more seriously now. Cnet really liked the dish dvr.
    Search on cnet for their review of the ViP622

    It looks like Dish has the HD channels I want, slightly better rates, and a hopefully a reliable dvr.
