    Hi Folks,

    I'm switching from Cablevision to Fios in a couple weeks, and wanted to know what I need to do not to lose my scheduled onepass recordings.

    Any advice?

    They shouldn't be lost just because you are switching providers. If you have them set to record on a specific channel, that should get adjusted automatically as long as the channel is named the same thing on both providers. Where you could run into some trouble is if the 2 systems have different channel names, such as one calling the channel "CNN" and the other one calling the channel "CNNHD", or if they are different local network affiliates for the same broadcast network like if the old ABC affiliate was "WXYZ" but the new one is "WZYX". You can try searching for the channel listings on zap2it.com to compare and see if the channel names are the same on both systems.
