    It's gone. Groups are always on now because without them the streaming option wouldn't work, especially with shows that didn't have any current episodes.

    Horrible way to go. Seems like the better fix would be to just not show the extra stuff when grouping was turned off. Now its VERY HARD to find older shows that are accumulating.

    I'm irritated at the loss of this option too. My wife and I watch our recordings in chronological order. Now watching one of our shows each night is going to be an exercise in frustration.

    I know folks from TiVo read these forums. Please restore the ability to unground the "My Shows" list. I like the suggestion of suppressing streamed episodes in that view.

    Yeah that does seem like a logical way to do it, not sure why they didn't.

    I'm curious as to why you do this. I personally don't see any reason to watch unrelated shows in any order other than what I feel like watching next; I'm not saying your reasons aren't valid, I'm just really mystified as to what they are.

    I watch a lot of news shows, and it's better to watch those in order. And even for pure entertainment, (as pppingme said) forced grouping makes it more work to go back and catch up on the accumulation of older shows you didn't have time to watch when they were first recorded, so you don't get too far behind.

    I record about 20 new OTA shows a week, and am right now watching stuff from 12/15/14. Imagine how easy it is not to watch stuff in order (not)...

    To each his own I guess. :) Watching shows in broadcast order gives us a framework for deciding what's next. We'll occasionally jump the queue if we really feel like watching a particular show, but most of the time it just makes things easier at the end of a long day. There's no "what do you want to watch?"... "I don't know... what do you want to watch?"

    It's the way we've been doing it for years and it is irritating to have features taken away.

    Isn't that the whole point of a DVR? Having choice?

    Watching things in the order they were recorded, even if I don't feel like watching it, seems odd. What if I'm in the mood for a comedy but the oldest recordings are all crime dramas? Too bad, must watch in order!

    :confused:

    Then I expect if a change were made which made it difficultf for you to do other than watch programs in order of recording you would be as distressed as CG_Allred is.

    I never said they should have removed the ability to turn off groups.

    I just don't understand why you would force yourself to watch TV in the order it was aired, if you have a DVR. You might as well get rid of choosing shows and just have a bunch of 24 hour buffers.

    I can't understand how people can stand to eat oysters but I have no problem accepting that they do.

    Then why do you have such a problem with someone who chooses to utilize their DVR in that way?

    I take it that you are the only one watching.

    No, it has nothing to do with choice, it has everything to do with time, I'm not going to be bound by the schedules of major networks. They very simply do not meet my lifestyle.

    Then why are you watching shows in the order that the major networks chose?

    I posted this in the Release Notes thread but will add it here also...

    Add me to the group that misses being able to ungroup shows. I basically record everything and then transfer a lot of it off the TiVo for later editing and watching. After I transfer the shows I turn groups off and go down the My Shows list and hit delete in a matter of seconds. Now I have to go into each shows folder to delete them.

    Luckily my Premiere has not been updated yet so I can still get the Roamio's ungrouped list there.
