TWP 2.1.b1
Tivo 8.3.1

Has there been any progress in getting Season Passes to work correctly when scheduling them via TWP2b (NpkChannelDefinition problem) ?

If I schedule anything using TWP it doesn't show up in the Tivo SP list. Additionally, anything I then try to schedule after using the TiVO SP Menu AFTER I've used TWP to schedule, gives me an Error #32. If I go back into TWP and delete the SP scheduled via TWP, the TiVo error goes away and I can once again schedule using the Tivo Menu. Bottom line is I can't schedule anything via TWP without corrupting the Tivo SP list. I have also made sure I only tried scheduling something on a channel for which I already have a SP that was scheduled within the Tivo menu (workaround I saw someplace on the forums).

    Try and edit line 697 in the modules/ui_season_pass.itcl file and change it from:

    # New SeasonPass format for DTivo v6.3 software
    if [PrefixMatches "6.3" $::tivoswversion] {
    to
    # New SeasonPass format for DTivo v6.3 software
    if [PrefixMatches "8.3" $::tivoswversion] {

    Let us know if this helps and we can change the code to check for both 6.3 and 8.3 (plus any others versions that may require Npk values).

    Making these changes did resolve the problem, so the code will be changed to recognise the 6.3, 8.3 and 9.1 software revisions.

    Preliminary code to recognise the newer systems that require Npk values has been added into CVS (and v2.1/071025 bundle created). It currently uses a regular expression implemented within a requiresNpk() function found in the libs/utils.tcl module. Somebody with one of these units may be able to figure out a better way of determining if a system requires these fields. Currently it will recognise 6.3,8.3,9.1 and 9.2
