    Similar to the Hydra "Wish List", thought it might be good to list all bugs we find in one place for the engineers. If you agree, please list any bugs you find, one per post. If your bug is already listed, just "like" that post.

    As with the "Wish List", probably best to limit discussion to one of the ongoing Hydra discussion threads. That said, if you know a work-around for a listed bug, this thread would probably be a good place to post it.

    Can't use D to remove a "My Shows" poster from my Minis, just from my Bolt+.

    Can't change output resolution from my component-connected mini. It's stuck at 720p.

    Component-connected mini display is slightly overscanning the screen.

    Xfinity on Demand App is not working. When I click on the logo for it, I get a message that it is currently unavailable.

    Bolt+ is not sensing it's connected to a 4k display when "auto" is selected from the resolution screen.

    When multiple resolutions are selected on my Bolt+, everything is being output at the highest checked resolution, regardless of the source resolution.

    My minis all became unresponsive. Why was this software ever allowed to be rolled out yet?

    30sec skip audio glitch:

    On Roamio, 3 or more 30skips in quick succession to reach front of the buffer on an active recording results in loss of audio.

    Audio recoverable with quick Pause/Play, or Skip-Back

    Nearly 100% repeatable.

    SORRY. Better question is why would people even touch this today...or tomorrow...or for a few months? I hope things get straightened out for you and everyone else.

    My (growing) list of issues or shortcomings based on feedback I've seen.
    1. SPS backdoor codes mostly don't work (quick clear play bar, clock).
    2. PC-->TiVo transfers (pyTivo/TiVo Desktop) not possible
    3. HME apps launch points missing (HME still runs if launched via kmttg)
    4. No TiVo Live Guide
    5. Left button for going back no longer works - have to use Back button. Also right button can't be used for select.
    6. Skip button to jump to end/start of lists no longer works everywhere, such as ToDo lists, only channel up/down and arrows work in lists. It was confirmed MyShows list and OnePasses lists do work for skip to end/start, but for example not for ToDo, My Channels, History, etc. so inconsistent at best.
    7. Every program in My Shows is treated as a folder. So if you select a single recording, it opens into the list menu rather than going directly to the Play screen. Also, clicking "play" on remote doesn't work. Extra unnecessary click. Then when you delete the episode it goes to an empty list screen rather than back to My Shows.
    8. TiVo,# shortcuts. Can't change first 4 Tivo,# remote shortcuts: 1=SP list, 2=ToDo, 3=wishlist, 4=search, etc. and those shortcuts are no longer what they used to be. 5-8 can be customized to what you want.
    9. MRV no longer works for moving shows from 1 TiVo to another. MRS still works. For MRV you have to initiate transfers at online.tivo.com
    10. This is opinion, not shortcoming per say: I much prefer simple lists for things like My Shows, ToDo, etc. instead of tiles that are all over the Hydra GUI. UPDATE: Tiles can be turned off for My Shows via preferences.
    11. Re-sync times for change in resolution (if you use native output settings) seem to take much longer in Hydra.
    12. Info button no longer gives you detailed show info (including size, etc) about a selected show in My Shows
    13. Using a few 30skips in quick succession (to get to front of the buffer) sometimes causes loss of audio. Need to skip-back to get audio to return.
    14. Clear and Delete Everything just hangs and does not prompt you to acknowledge, etc. Same with Clear Guide Data/To Do List and Clear Thumbs/Suggestions. (1 person reported this, another said it seems to be functional for them).
    15. There is inconsistently sometimes no indicator (red dot) that a program you are watching is recording or not.
    16. kmttg AutoSkip from SkipMode doesn't work in Hydra. UPDATE: Fixed in latest kmttg release.
    17. When you press the Live TV button, it goes to live tv, but always sets the channel to 1 regardless of what channel was on previously.

    NOTES:
    1. SPS: 30 sec skip is default, but SPS30S can be used to toggle back to 30 sec scan. Clock mostly non-functional, quick clear play bar doesn't work at all.

    Because we are adventurous.

    And many of us had no problems. Some had problems with minis from the beginning. Some haven’t.

    Thanks for this info. I was wondering and hoping it would work (not for me because I am not going to this). I was wondering if the interface would be the same, but of course it would (will). I would not want tiles for that and anyway, the internet interface was made by comcast and resides on their servers. Years ago I asked Tivo, Inc to talk to Comcast about the skip button code not being recognized, but of course they ignored the problem.

    I am sure they will get it to work. Seems they got a lot of bugs to work out.

    Good list but I’m not so sure about skip being default. All three of my TiVo’s had scan. It may be based on what you had before.

    Also, I finally got resolution changes to work and they seemed the same to me. May be hardware dependent.

    Can you elaborate on what lists it doesn't work on? I can use it on both MY SHOWS and in One Pass Manager in Hydra, which are about the only lists that I typically use that functionality for?

    On the To Do List and the Recording Activity screens, the skip forward/skip back buttons move forward/back one day for each press in Hydra (don't know what they previously did as I don't use those screens all that often). I also never thought to use it in some other places, like a long list in SEARCH.

    TiVo Clock (SPS9S) is too large and does not include the playback/progress time.
