    I missed several shows due to the "Someone in your household modified the season pass, wishlist" issue. Anyone else seeing this once again ??? And there appears to be all kinds of stuff missing from my search listings as well :mad:

    edit: make that ALL my season passes are showing "no upcoming episodes" ... 30 Rock, Chuck, Kitchen Nightmares, The Office .. And I've got like 5 pages TOTAL of shows in my guide data :mad: :mad:

    reboot! this occassionally happens when the TiVo gets confused. reboot and let it reacquire satellite information. give it an hour and all your season passes will come back.

    I did a clear/reset (not reformat) last night and the search data is back but a bunch of season passes disappeared and it seems I have to delete/re-add what's left for the recordings to kick in as they still showed no upcoming episodes.

    ANNOYING.

    To me "Reboot" means unplug, count 30 and plug back in. Why do a clear/reset?

    It would appear you are one of very few having this problem, last time it was all over the forums.

    I just started having this problem tonight. I went to watch Chuck and saw that it didn't record because "someone in my household..." Then I noticed that a lot of my other season passes are having the same problems.

    I went in to "selct programs to record" to try to manually record Chuck for next week and it didn't even show up as an option even though I can go into the program guide and find it next Monday at 8:00.

    Is there a general consensus on how to fix this (other than reverting to old software :rolleyes: )? I tried to delete Chuck and reset it as a seson pass and now in my to do list it is showing Chuck twice for next week and it won't be recording either of them. Will this just fix itself?

    My 2nd unit sometimes has this problem when the HDD is full.

    My HDD was nowhere near full.

    I've found that the clear/delete (not the full reformat) is the only way to fix it. It did it the 1st time and it did it this last one.

    My OS is the 6.3E. It fixed itself sometime yesterday during the day. I had checked it yesterday morning and a lot of my shows were still showing the problem and showing that they were not going to record. I checked it when I got home from work and it had fixed itself for all my season passes (as far as I could tell).

    The only things I did was reset my season pass for Chuck and moved it up in the order. I also unplug the unit and rebooted it and I re-ran my guided satellite setup. After all those things it was still screwed up, then, like I said, it fixed itself sometime during the day yesterday. I don't think anything I did had an effect on it.

    The "Someone in your household ..." message should include:
    or "a previously scheduled season pass no longer appears in the guide"

    If a show is scheduled to record and then it disappears from the guide, you get the "Someone in your household ..." message. Most of the time it means a show was removed from the guide when new guide data was downloaded.

    I noticed tonight that the reboots are occuring with precise timing repeitition. For example, based on interrupted season passes, I know that it has been reseting every Tuesday at 9:03pm Eastern Time. And it takes between 8-11 minutes to reset. I don't think these are the only times, but the first pattern I have seen.

    Well, it happened again tonight. I first noticed it last Monday and now I'm noticing it again (Monday). I'm really getting fed up with this machine. It's been working great up until now. Why all of a sudden is it screwing up my season passes? :mad:

    Just curious if anyone had this happen lately......

    I had one HR10 miss a slew of HDNET's "Nothing but Trailers"...and just noticed that another of my HR10's missed a recording of Leno via OTA local NBC.

    The one that missed the NBT's on HDNet also showed several that "will" be missed over the next week because of the mysterious "Someone in your household has modified..." message.

    I haven't done a restart/reboot to see if those FUTURE recordings will now be recorded....but I didn't notice any future Leno recordings being missed for the same reason. I'll have to check my other 2 HR10's to see if they too have the issue.

    We're now missing shows because of the 28-day rule, which is a load of crap.
    I thought I'd never jump ship and go with the cable company's box, but I don't know now.

    Not sure if this fits your LENO season pass, but LENO is showing repeats now because of the strike. So if your SP is set only to record first run that would explain why there is no LENO.

    I have it set to record all episodes---and, like I said, the text in the History stated it didn't record because "Someone in your household....". When I checked the season pass it IS set to record all episodes.

    And, while we're at it, does ANYONES on screen guide show "repeat" for ANY Leno's or Conan's (the 3:05 am show in particular)?? Here in NYC the guide data for 4-1 has NOT had the "repeat" designation for around 4-5 months now. Was just wondering if ANY DMA's nationwide have guide data showing "repeat" for either one of these shows. IIRC, this is a problem with a LOT of the shows we TIVO on our OTA channels.....(CBS/ABC/FOX/NBC)
    :thumbsdown:
