    My wife's beloved THR22 had been experiencing some odd guide issues, with season passes not picking up shows that were in the guide (and not excluded because of first-run, etc.) So I figured it would be reasonable to do the "Clear Guide Data", which said it would reload all the guide data from the satellite and rebuild the ToDo list. Well, it did more than that - it deleted all but four (?!) of the 20+ season passes and deleted all the wishlists. None of the remaining SPs had their ToDos repopulated. My wife is not a happy camper right now.

    Many of her Season Passes we had duplicated on the HR44 we also have, but not all.

    At least it didn't delete the recordings!

    I don't know about these but the regular DVRs can take up to 48 hours for things to rebuild.
    Give til tomorrow and see if more has came back.
    If not, try a red button reset and see if it helps.

    The guide data is all back - but the Season Passes and Wishlists were never supposed to be touched. She's since attempted to reconstruct them.
