    Understood. But the Bolt is the brains of the operation - it does all the heavy lifting - I feel the Mini should be less. Oh, and it should work.

    Hydra on Bolt issue - missing info/recording not permitted, leading to another question, is default for missing data to disable recording?!

    Watching regular morning news OTA and pressed record:

    Recording not permitted
    v56
    null
    Recording this show is prohibited by the copyright holder.
    Visit tivo.com/copyprotection to learn more about how TiVo complies with copyright law.

    Pressing Info on channel says Title and Description not available yet the Guide shows "CBS This Morning" with description

    Rebooting the box corrected the issue.

    This is my point as well. Same Tivo Bolt on Same TV with prior UI, there was no overscan. Now there is with Hydra and I can't seem to find a way to correct it.

    Can you check the resolution?
    Modern TV's usually overscan with 480i/p only.

    Unable to Modify Current Recording

    Last night, being Sunday, as par the course, most CBS programs were pushed back at least 15-30 minutes due to NFL football. While recording NCIS:LA, normally, before Hyrda, to extend the recording, I would have gone into the recording either through the TO-DO List or Now Playing, looked for the recording, selected it, and then select "Modify Recording". I could not find that option anywhere in Hydra. I even tried to go through the To-Do List but I still could not modify a recording "In Progress". As a workaround, I was still able to modify the recording, using the Android app.

    You can still do the same thing. I did that this weekend. I went into the To Do list, selected the recording, and then modified it. I've also modified a recording in progress. By selecting the info button and then there was an option somewhere to change the recording parameters.

    When I hit the INFO during the recording, all I saw was the option to update the OnePass. I'll try again today. If you can take a screengrab, I'd appreciate it so I know what to look for. (It shouldn't be this hard).

    So The Bolt is set to "auto" but the output is 720p. The TV, Model LG 42LCD7D is set to "set by program". I've tried all the other settings, 4:3, 16:9, zoom 1 and zoom 2. no luck. The best options seems to be the "set by program" but I still have the overscan issue.

    The Samsung LTP227W I'm having the "overscan" issue with is a 720p device. I'm connected component, and even though the mini allows me to believe I'm changing resolutions, it always reverts to 720p output. I might understand not being able to output 1080i/p, but I can't even lower the resolution to 480i/p.

    Does your LG have a "just scan" mode?
    “Picture Mode” then “Aspect ratio” and change from “16:9” to “Just scan”.

    Also see if this information helps:

    Browsing google search results, it looks like the LTP227W may be an older TV that was "HD-Ready"
    If I recall correctly, it is possible that you may not be able to get 1080p via component on some older TVs.
    Don't know if that applies to you or not.

    This is a bug I saw yesterday also. While watching a program that's currently recording, when you hit the info button one of the choices on the info bar should be "recording" that allows you open a menu to modify the recording in various ways. I saw an instance yesterday when that "Recording" choice was not on the info bar!

    Actually 720p is all I need. I just wanted to try a different resolution to see if it affected the overscan issue.

    It does look like Hydra may lock component connections into 720p, tho. Probably OK, since most (if not all) old component-only displays are native 768p or 480p.

    The exact same thing happened to me last night on CBS. The only options I could find everywhere were to modify the one pass (not just the episode recording) or to stop the recording... from the my shows list or the guide.

    I just checked this out. I was able to modify a recording in progress. First I needed to select More Info. Then I went down to One Pass and to the right was an option to modify the recording.

    I retracted my "fixed" comment. Waiting did not clear the issue.
    Pressing "Select" on the episode listing takes you to the "Play" option screen which will bring up the "Can't watch Live TV now" dialog.

    Pressing the Play button on the remote on the episode listing will play the episode.

    From Tivo_Ted prelaunch "
    Regarding "Popular TiVo features have been enhanced to work with voice control." here is an example of some things you can do with voice:
    "Skip It" - skips to the end of the next commercial break. Maybe not hugely useful when you have a skip button, but if you are using voice a lot, it keeps you from having to find the SKIP button. Chan up/down and "D" still work.
    "Schedule a OnePass for Modern Family" - takes you right to the point where you can setup a OnePass
    "To Do List" - Takes you to the To Do List
    "OnePass Manager" - Takes you to the OnePass Manager

    Other UI tasks include - Home, Guide, My Shows, What to Watch, Settings, Menu and Help"
    Per my previous post, Voice navigation was working on Nov. 5. On Nov. 7 it was not working. Voice is interpreted correctly, e.g. 'My Shows" gets spelled out, but than the "Sorry, I can't help with that" message comes up. It's been over a week, so presumably Tivo knows about this issue. Has anyone heard from Tivo about this?

    So that helped. I do not have a "just scan" mode on the TV. I ended up leaving it at 16:9 and was able to get into expert mode and manually adjust the H and V. It is not perfect but much better. Might be time for a new TV anyway with Black Friday coming up. Thanks for you assistance and providing that link.

    Happy Wednesday night everyone...tonight's malfunction is brought to you by the code C501. This popped up when I attempted to play a show on the Bolt. Needless to say "trying again" was an exercise in futility. I did find a work around by playing the show from the Guide (it was currently recording) and about 10 minutes later the Bolt decided to reboot all on its own - while 3 shows were recording.
