I intend to replace the HD on one of my TiVos. What is the "trick" for getting the Season Passes to repopulate from TiVo?

Thank you.

The "trick" I am looking for involves signing up for something on TiVo's web site. That leads to TiVo storing certain personal info, including your season passes, for your box, and that gets repopulated to the box after an HD change.

If you use the Zipper to install hacks, TivoWebPlus will backup and restore Season Passes.

I don't know how technical you are, but this is one way people do what you are asking.

I think you are talking about TV Gurus. Supposedly you can signup for that and in the process you change you Privacy notice. After a while it is supposed to rebuild your SPs and WLs after you upgrade your HDD.

However, this only applies to an upgrade of the same TiVo Service Number. It does not work if you change to a different box.

If you want to replace the working hard drive with a new larger hard drive you need a PC and MFSLive this way you can keep the recordings also.

A known side effect of KidZone and Guru Guide is/was that your personal information like wish lists and season passes gets saved and restored after a hard drive replacement.

That's the one, I think. Does anyone know the details?
