    I might as well chime in. I have an HD TiVo with 9.4-01-2-652. I installed a replacement 750GB drive (programmed via Weaknees) about 3 weeks ago. We then went on a 2 week vacation and returned yesterday. Several SP's did not record and the to-do list all stated "none-scheduled". And, horrors of horrors, tonight's Desperate Housewives did not record!!!!!
    We rearranged the SP priority and now everything seems okay....but my wife is still pissed. I guess I will have to wait for this bug to be fixed.

    I had this problem starting a bit last week. By last night, the only recordings in my To Do List were 5 recordings I setup last week.

    I tried to delete a couple Season Passes so I could re-add them, but, even though the delete process seemed to go okay, the Season Passes did not actually delete.

    I restarted the TiVo, and was then able to delete a Season Pass. After re-adding the SP and then re-ordering it, the To Do List was back to normal.

    Unfortunately, I missed the HD recordings of several shows Monday night, but I either have them on another TiVo in SD or can record re-airings.

    I hope this is resolved soon!

    By the way, I confirmed that the SP settings were correct and the shows should have recorded. Like I said, there were only 5 recordings scheduled in the To Do List. The TiVo is un-hacked, with a WD DVR Expander added to the TiVo HD 20 hr.

    Sadly, this just happened to me too. 've never had problems before, but today last night's shows were not recorded. My Tivo recognized future episodes, but said that there were no scheduled recordings. It updated when I went into season pass and told it to record with these options, but I missed the new episodes of Heroes and How I Met Your Mother and I don't want this to happen again. Please fix soon, Tivo!

    What was odd was my TiVo did record Big Bang Theory but missed How I Met Your Mother that follows it.

    Yep, happened to me also. I sent Jerry info. I notice that we've had no suggestions recorded since 10/10 either.

    Re-prioritizing a season pass (#4 of 59) seemed to fix it but suggestions are still not recording.

    Re-ordering the SP's repopulates the To Do List, but I have had to restart my S3 to get it to start recording suggestions again once it stopped. Give it a try and hopefully it'll fix your issue too.

    Had this problem on my Tivo HD. Restart did not solve the problem. Rearranging the season pass partially solved it. I moved my #3 item on Season Pass Manager down to #5, and all the season passes except #1 and #2 showed up on ToDo list. I manually changed the recording options on #1 and #2 and now they are showing as well.

    TivoJerry indicated that with the information they have received from effected users, they think they have a handle on what is happening. But no estimate of when a fix will be available. Since this impacts the primary functionality of a TiVo box, I would think that would be a Priority 1 issue in the TiVo development group. :)

    In the past week, my Suggestions stopped recording and I got the 'None Scheduled' message and then 2 repeating manual recordings for Tuesday did not show up in the TDL. Rearranging a SP in the SP Manager fixed the TDL issues both times but Suggestions still aren't recording.

    I noticed my ToDo list empty on a Series 3 on Sunday. I noticed because a season pass show did not record. I have identical season passes on a series 2 and it recorded as expected and had a full ToDo list.

    Because I had read of this problem here previously, I did not attempt a reboot. I went straight to work "touching" all season passes. Once done my ToDo list was once again full and multiple season pass shows recorded on Monday.

    Suggestions had stopped recording as well and as of Tuesday have not yet recorded anything new. My last suggestion was recorded Oct 8. My drive is not even close to full and my recently deleted folder is empty. Suggestions on the series 2 continue to record as they always have.

    This is the second time my Series 3 has experienced this issue. The first time was a few weeks ago. My Series 2 has never experienced this issue.

    This is getting ridiculous. Now I checked my TDL again tonight, and one of the Man Rec's that I had scheduled for 9pm is gone and instead the other recording I had scheduled at that time is set to record on both tuners. And I can't delete any SP's from the SP Manager.

    Read my other posts, I give Tivo a ton of leeway when it comes to problems that occur, but this is affecting the main purpose of having a Tivo. Without this functionality, it's serving the same purpose as a digital VCR.



    ETA: After my Tivo froze when I tried to check the Info screen, I did a hard re-boot. That allowed me to delete SP's again. I had to change the recording settings on the SP with the missing recordings to fix that. Suggestions also started recording again.

    This just happened to me.... I noticed that "Clone Wars" did not record last night, and I went to check the "To Do" list, and all my season passes were scheduled to not record...

    I have not yet tried any to the trouble shooting tips posted here, as my son is watching a movie right now...

    For the record, as I know the Tivo guys monitor this forum....

    My setup
    TivoHD with MyDVR Expander
    last called home this morning around 1am
    everything else seems to be functioning fine....

    I've been very happy with my TiVo, but this is unacceptable! Thanks to this forum, at least I know I'm not alone!

    EDIT:
    I was able to move some season passes around, and that seems to have corrected the problem.... I hope this is a one time thing....

    We're in the same boat now on our Series3. I re-did all the season passes last month and that calmed things down for a while, but this week it's ignoring season passes again, AND this time I CAN'T CANCEL SEASON PASSES (it says it does it, but it doesn't)! So, that means it's impossible to attempt the same workaround this time.

    What's going on, TiVO?????

    EDIT: Rebooting allowed me to delete SP's again. Deleting the non-working season passes and re-adding them fixes this again *just like last time*. Why does this keep happening???? With 51 season passes, this is a PAIN TO FIX. I've done it twice now. I'm not interested in doing it again.

    Add me to the list. I was unaware this was a widespread problem until I just checked this board. I had noticed that Tivo did not record the late local news which was a season pass for the past couple of nights, but it was late and I did not investigate further. Tonight I looked and nothing was scheduled. I deleted all season passes and then re-did them and the to do list is now full. I'm extremely surprised that there has been no word from Tivo on this since it seems to be affecting many users........

    Rather than deleting your season passes, you can just "modify" the settings (max episodes up by one notch is an easy one) and it seems to pull the correct internal ID for the show and fix the pass. However, I did this last month and it only worked for about a month. They were broken again this month.

    It's really a bad deal! Some word from TiVo about an incoming fix would be nice.

    This bug has been around -- but seemingly only for the S3 -- for at least a year. It seems to be getting worse; I've been bit by it several times in the past couple of months, and other friends of mine are reporting it as well.

    I'm in, my S3 is bugged.:thumbsdown:
    It's manageable, but took me off guard. I rearrange my season passes periodically now. I'm looking forward to the fix. I appreciate people calling it out. I felt stressed and alone, came to the boards, and felt reassured.:up:

    When this problem occurs does it affect all Season Passes and scheduled recording or can it only affect a handful of them?

    Also when the problem occurs does it suddenly just wipe the To Do list or does it stop populating and eventually (about 2 weeks) the To Do list is empty?

    In my case, it was all Season Passes (and Suggestions). Everything stopped. If I made a new Season Pass, it and it alone would show up in the To Do list.

    It doesn't suddenly wipe out (I noticed mine a few days before it ran out and assumed it was a network connection issue which I later learned it wasn't) but just stops populating.

    IMHO, one of the biggest bugs yet. I know whatever affects you is the biggest bug :) but this is functionality Tivo has had since day one and is it's bread and butter.
