Reservations message ''prices unavailable''

I have been trying to make a required reservation on a train, but I keep getting this message: 

Prices unavailable

No price results were found for this connection. It is possible that all pass holder seats are sold out. Please try searching for another connection or check 'More information' and try other ways to book this seat reservation. If no pass holder seats are available anymore you need to buy a separate full fare ticket to board.

It says "If no pass holder seats are available ...". Does this mean that there are only a certain number of seats allotted to Eurail Pass holders, even though there may still be seats available on the train?

Varies per train-most notably the hi-speed TGV pof SNCF=FRench railways+ its various overtheborder same style but different name trains-which have a very high supplmt anyway.

TGV have small quota for passholders-then its 10€, if sold out the app canNOT handle this-too complicated-but as long as there are seats, its 20 then. Call SNCF /en/ line if youre too anxious and cannot stand the thought of having to be a bit flexible or use other trains. But for overtheborder its much higher and apparently often lower quota-often possible to hop over border on free local trains.
