    I'm sure most will agree that the original Pandora App for Tivo was probably the best App for a Tivo up to present day. It was clean, fast, consistent with the Tivo look, and it's just worked. The reason for all of the above is that it was coded specifically for Tivo using the old HME platform.

    Tivo's addition of the Opera browser and move towards HTML5 is a double-edged sword. Content providers like it because most already have their apps in HTML5 and dropping Tivo-specific apps is one less code-base to maintain. It's also potentially good for Tivo users as HTML5 is ubiquitous and it's much easier to add more apps to Tivo now.

    On the other end, we lose the best app Tivo ever provided. I doubt we could convince Tivo to give us the option of which Pandora App we use, but, while the new one seems OK, the old one is preferred.

    I do not know how long it will last, but I currently have both versions of Pandora in my Music list.

    Any way to clean out unused entries in this list like one can clean up the video list?

    Probably a reboot will remove it.

    I know this is an old thread but my issue is relevant to the topic.

    I have two Pandora apps listed in the music section. One of them (I assume it is the old version) gives me an error saying the device doesn't support the audio codec. The other Pandora app works fine. Is there any way to get rid of the old non-functioning Pandora app? There is no way to tell them apart from the menu.

    I found that both are shown when PyTivo is running. I never expected it to be related, but when I stopped the service the 2nd Pandora instance went away.

    Also - I think its specifically related to having pyTivo share music and photos. I removed those and think it also did the trick.
