TiVo doesn't know "WB" and "UPN"; it knows, to use Los Angeles as an example, "KTLA" and "KCOP" (or, on DirecTiVo, "LA5" and "LA13"). The only Season Passes that will need to be changed are for UPN network programs that currently air on KCOP, that will be airing on the CW network on KTLA beginning in September.Attack said:I know if will be one of the current channels that will get renamed, but when the channel call sign changes all of the SP's for that channel will have to be recreated.
OK thanks. That's not ideal since one of our local stations plays repeats of Veronica Mars frequently without guide data, but I 'spose it will do.phox_mulder said:I think all you can do now is create a wishlist,
then once the channels actually change, convert it to a SP.
I see that America's Next Top Model starts on 9/20 so I would say any station should be switched by then. Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_CW_Television_NetworkPeternJim said:Anybody got a firm date for the changeover?
My wife was watching something last night and there was a CW logo in the corner. This launch date of 9/18/06 seems odd then.Attack said:I see that America's Next Top Model starts on 9/20 so I would say any station should be switched by then.

Our local WB station is already running ads under the CW name. I can't recall whether they've changed their channel logo yet (last WB show I watched was Angel).Mike20878 said:My wife was watching something last night and there was a CW logo in the corner. This launch date of 9/18/06 seems odd then.
Yep, which is really going to mess up people whose UPN station is switching over to MNTV. Between 9/5, when MNTV starts, and ~9/18, when CW starts (and UPN stops), all the UPN shows are likely to be unavailable in those markets. Unless of course the station shows one or the other in the off-hours (which would be less of an issue for us TiVo owners I suppose).sieglinde said:A show on the other one, (mynetwork?) starts on the 5th of September.
Veronica Mars is my number one season pass, so I don't want to miss it either. If it helps, the S3 premiere is scheduled for October 3, so you will have some time after the switchover to make sure TiVo has it properly in the To Do list.dylanemcgregor said:Don't want to risk missing Veronica Mars.
