    Concurrent with the Hydra discussion threads, I thought it might be helpful information for the developers to have a thread that just lists suggestions for new features or usability changes, with no discussion.

    If you agree this is a good idea, just post what you think should be added or changed and if other folks agree, they can "Like" the idea. If you have a variation on a previously posted idea, post that as well, as a new item.

    Hopefully, based on the # of likes, the developers can get a sense of how to prioritize any requests they consider implementing.

    Please only list one suggestion per post, so that idea can be "liked" or not on it's own. Thx!

    Would like the ability to "auto-play" a folder of recordings in season, episode order.

    Used to be able to do that in the old UI.

    Would like "live guide" functionality.

    Either as a guide option, or by selecting the grid channel name, similar to how the iOS app works.

    I'd like to get the "right for select, left to go back" functionality back.

    Would like the option to suppress the progress bar while 30-skipping, similar to the way it's now suppressed while hitting replay.

    Gets it out of the way for baseball and football.

    Add category “Specials” for My Shows, this has always been missing in previous UIs as well.

    30 second slip. And other SPS codes as settings not codes that need to be redone.

    Remote DVR (Device) Scheduling no longer works.
    Setting up a new OnePass and single recordings on another DVR
    Here are the steps on the old UI:
    1) Go to the My Shows list on a Remote DVR (Device)
    2) Press Guide
    3) Find a program and press Select
    4) Scroll down to "Explore this show"
    5) The Remote DVR should be listed at the top of screen, you are now Scheduling on that Device.

    Channel list: use a video window to show us whether we receive the channel or not. Less guesswork.

    Make "What To Watch" a home screen shortcut option, rather than a fixed category.

    When selecting LIVE TV or GUIDE, remember the last live channel tuned to, rather than defaulting to the first channel in the GUIDE.

    Add a "passthrough" option to the video resolutions screen, so If you want your TV or AVR to handle upconverting, you don't have to individually check all available resolutions.

    After deleting the last recording of a show, instead of announcing "There is nothing to display in this group", why not do an automatic "back"?

    In OnePass have the ability and option to also include shows on other TiVos.

    This way you could create a streaming only OnePass which also lets you see the recordings on another TiVo instead of having to go to the other TiVo and find the show/episode.

    Add 'user profiles,' allowing actual per-person personalization, including but not limited to*:
    • Personalized 'My Shows' listing :: "My Shows" could finally become *my* shows!, displaying only those shows to which a given user has "subscribed."

    • Personalized "watched progress" :: The addition of viewing progress bars was great, but actually adds confusion as more viewers use a given DVR, which is increasingly more likely as TiVo correctly shifts to a server/client whole home solution (whole globe, when considering mobile).

    • Personalized 'Partially Watched' subgroup :: Same as for progress bars, the value of this subgroup is diminished in a multi-viewer home, especially with the shift towards whole home solutions; this filter should only list shows that a given user has partially viewed.

    • Personalized Favorites channel list(s!) :: Aside from expanding what's generally allowed by increasing the number of Favorites channel lists beyond one, each viewer should be able to customize their own Favorites listing(s).

    • Personalized Suggestions filtering :: Each user should have the ability to tune their TiVo experience by providing personalized Thumbs Up/Down ratings, and these per-user preferences, including personalized Favorites channels, would result in a filtered, more personalized Suggested Recordings experience.

    • Personalized 'Discovery Bar' :: Very much similar to what has been mentioned as coming in a Fall update for the mobile apps, the Discovery Bar should be personalized, customizing the content based on the OnePass shows to which a given user has subscribed, and further tuned based on personal ratings for shows, channels and genres.

    • Personalized streaming app authentication :: Individual viewers need rapid access to their own profiles on the available streaming apps, from Netflix or PLEX user profiles to individualized YouTube, Pandora, Spotify, etc. accounts.

    • Personalized social media integration :: Same as for streaming apps, any social media integration needs to be customized on a per-viewer basis.

    * not yet updated for Hydra/gen4 naming paradigm

    Left arrow does special list of channels rather than just favorites.

    Ability to adjust all items on main screen. Not just the last few. (And what happened to 9? Only goes to 8).

    I miss 1 for one pass, 2 for to do, 3 for wishlist, 4 for search. They made sense.

    Give me the ability to adjust 0 to 4.

    Bring back the single screen for channel list and favorites. The two are in completely different parts of the GUI. The single screen made managing channels so much easier.

    The SPS9S on screen clock is too large.
