Advertisements From what few demos I’ve seen here or on Youtube, Hydra looks just like the crappy Cox Contour / Comcast xfiniti dvr’s, which I find are really unintuitive, take way to long to maneuver, and waste perfectly good, visual real estate. Filling the space with big, bright shiny boxes is great if you’re looking for that kind of thing, but I’m not looking to get turned-on by a TV guide system. I’m looking for shows, rec times, alternate dates, info on actors, CC and 5.1 info. If the two column view and live guide are gone, it may finally be time to say “goodbye” to Tivo. Do they realize the layout was primarily the reason A LOT of us bought Tivo’s in the first place? Any crappy dvr can record TV. Only the Tivo allowed us to do it differently, quickly, easily. Baffled. As long as Hydra isn’t ‘forced’ on us, then fine.
