    Does anyone have a script (or two) to export and import wishlists?

    I'll need to redo guided setup for the new alt-epg, and I really don't want to have to recreate all my wishlists if I don't have to :rolleyes:

    I'm sure the requirement has come up before (Oh, and don't tell me that Tivowebplus does this - I'm only running the original Tivoweb :( )

    I've not heard of one. If TW+ does it, might be easier to install that.

    Not Far...
    There is no need to do this to switch over to the Alt EPG as normal Title and Keyword Wishlists are not deleted by switching to the AltEPG so long as you don't do a Clear and Delete Everything (which those who wash their sheets every other day in order to be clean and tidy seem to recommend but those of us who hoard books and junk in our homes see no point or need to follow and instead we simply rerun Guided Setup whilst keeping our current thumbs and wishlists etc).

    It is Seasons Passes that are lost by switching to the AltEPG due to the TMSIDs not being present in the new EPG feed and not Wishlists. So you will have to set up all your Season Passes again as things stand unless someone comes up with a way to avoid this between now and June 1st. The only Wishlists that may be lost or cease to work are those that are genre or actor or director specific.

    And someone else has just informed me of a scrip to turn season passes into wishlists :)
