    Last time I checked, Standby had maybe 1 watt different power usage because TiVo's cannot truly standby and be ready to record. The only advantage would be if the HDMI port is not active for automatic HDMI switching.

    Did you see Steve's post? "All" (which you are on in that screenshot) shows all apps, but "Favorites" show selected apps.

    In Classic TiVo, selecting Apps shows you only the selected apps.
    In Hydra, Selecting Apps shows all app regardless of the selection via "A add & manage apps".
    FAVORITE APPS are selected using the thumbs up not the manage apps screen.

    If manage apps is supposed to do something, I've yet to discover what it does.

    You clearly did not pick up on the fact that I was only quoting a portion of your post. I have not upgraded to Hydra and cannot review thumbs in the OS. I have no clue as to your other issues.

    Red Did not transition on the My Shows
    When displaying the Playlist the recording transitioned and there was no indication of the current recording. I had to exit and return for the red dot to appear next to the recorded program.

    Program Count if 1 Lost on Back (with episode strop off)
    When you select a program with one item and display the detail screen and press back, the list display no longer displays the program count until you reenter my shows or use A options and back.

    Interesting, I never even tried from that screen because you don't see the rating there. But yes, you are correct, I can change it there.

    Yea, that's still a lot of clicks. But your first tip works and solves my issue.

    You are conflating two different elements of the interface that serve very different purposes. The second screen is unrelated to the first and is intended solely for selecting which program content providers's apps will be included in Search and One Pass. Select the services you use and unselect the ones you don't. It is not an interface for selecting your favorite apps.

    On the first screen, you can chose favorites apps by highlighting them and pressing 'thumbs up.' Only those apps you select will then appear when, from the selection bar, you navigate to 'Favorite Apps'. If you wish to remove an app from favorite apps, highlight there and press 'thumbs down'.

    Note that if you return to TiVo Home, then later press 4 to go back to apps, it will return directly to favorite apps if that is where you left it.

    I am coming from the classic TiVo interface which had similar functionality.
    Selecting Apps displayed the managed/selected apps in the menu when highlighted.

    I suppose this is yet another case where Hydra has changed the functionality. The original implementation lacked favorites, makes better use of the display, and reduces screen transitions.

    I stumbled on this a bit initially for the same reason.

    My Shows - Clear button on single on brings up Delete Everything in this group, should just delete

    While this is technically correct, it is a group of 1 item.
    When the show is selected, clear displays an X and deletes the item without a confirmation dialog.
    It should do the same form the My Shows list.

    Scratch Sound followed by loss of TiVo sound effects (beeps) audio

    While traversing the My Shows, there was a short scratch sound and that stopped all TiVo beeps sounds. Audio still present playing videos. Restart the TiVo and the sound effects returned.

    Unfortunately, due to other "features" of the new My Shows list, it can only show folders, even if there's only one item.

    I miss My Shows having a mix of folders and single items for several reasons, but that's in the past now.

    That has been happening on my TIVO Roamio for over 6 months now, on old UI and new HYDRA UI.

    Have NO CLUE what causes that. Seems to come back on at will, and then do the scratch sound, and turn off.

    Clueless, and yet another stupid issue that should not occur. What a joke.

    This is not complicated:

    Case Program count of

    0: do nothing
    1: delete single item
    else: delete folder

    If you are using power saving/standby modes, you might try disabling it and/or not using standby. It seems to be causing some issues with the gen3 interface so there could also be some issues with Hydra too.

    Twice today, had an issue going back into Hydra from Netflix. TiVo button or Live TV was looping back into Netfilx, like I was reactivating it. Once it rebooted, the other time the issue cleared and I was able to get back to the menu.

    Come on you expect us to read 70 pages of documentation to better understand how tivo hydra works? Are you insane in this day and age reading documents is a lost art.. I think you are maybe expecting too much from us, don’t you think? Jk.. very valid point you made.

    When using the peanut with a roamio I always get what I described, live back select starts from the beginning.
