Anyone figure out how to delete season passes via the online Genie?

Not sure how to do this online unfortunately. I wish it highlighted which programs were already on your 'To Do' list.

While we are discussing SP. Is there a way to universally change the recordings to start on-time. I changed what I thought to be the overall setting for recording but pre-existing SP's are still starting 5 mins early. Or is this to do with the EPG changing to the next programme early and triggering the recording to start?

You have to enter a manual start/finish time, which you can set to be reoccuring like a SP. I'm not at my TiVo now to provide directions, but from memory you enter 'Find Program's'. I use this to record programs on Prime I like to watch. Please note: I don't believe this feature is available online.

I was sure that there was a settings screen that had options for start and end time rules where you could say On-Time, 1, 2, 5, 10 minutes early and below that the same options for the end time.
Maybe I am remembering that incorrectly and it was just part of a manual recording add. But they were definitely one above the other.

There is so much more that the genie could do. Manual recording entry could be made so much easier for prime etc.
Season pass manager would be nice.
Updating general settings is so much easier than using the TiVo interface.
Renaming files would be nice using the broswer transfer interface. Rather than loads called "Help us get this EPG..."

etc, etc...have we got a suggested improvement thread?

Thanks, so what comes up to allow you to set something to recrods? that just looks like a web tv guide to me. When you click on a programme does it offer a seasons pass or something?
