I've asked hybrid nz if they are going to bring us season pass manager online through mytivo or not as using the remote is useless.

Does anyone know of any other 3rd party apps you could use to manage the tivo remotely.

What's wrong with TiVo Genie, works for me?
http://genie.mytivo.co.nz/

Or do you mean over your home network?

Why is the remote useless, again, this works for me.

Adding the season passes is fine from my tivo.

My problem is editing all the existing season passes on the tivo unit itself.

I don't think that would be very easy, as the tivo unit would then need to send that data from the tivo, back to hybrid. Currently the programming is one way from the website, to the tivo unit. It is probably possible, but it maybe a privacy issue, as then hybrid would know what programs you are recording. Perhaps they could add it as a paid add on. I find the current season pass manger on the tivo usable, but not ideal.

What is the issue with the remote method? Is it just the tediousness of pressing buttons?

If so, you could get a Harmony remote and programm a series of commands mapped to a button to run through a set list of standard button presses to delete or create a season pass.

I had one I used for going down to the TiVo suggestions that would bring up the menu and page scroll to the bottom of the list. then up one to the suggestions.

Good idea about the harmony, but its just tedious to manage all the season passes with the remote.

I just don't have many season passes so I guess it doesn't bother me.

There are shortcuts on the remote [TiVo Button then a number, 3 i think] to get you to the "To Do List" and certainly from there a pre-programmed remote once configured would let you press a single button to run through whatever steps you needed to delete a recording once you have highlighted it or more complexly [is that a word?] edit the "keep until" option or "Number of Episodes to keep" option.
You could also have one that [From the guide grid] could select show, set record with options, then choose season-pass then set all the defaults you like. Bit of setting up and working out which buttons needed pressing in what order but once done you would be sweet.   

You can add extra pages of commands to the remote's LCD screen menu or map the commands to one of the 4 coloured buttons [Red/Blue/Yellow/Green]

Sounds like a project for me tonight now I have myself interested Laughing

What changes do you need to make?  I set my season passes up and then forget them.
