    In the menu screen, if you Arrow left or right, it changes the columns. For consistency, that would make sense. Already works if you are in the banner level of My Shows.

    I’d like picture in picture — if I press the right button, I’d love to see video of all the channels my tuners are tuned to.

    Yeah, I thought about right/left arrow, but figured I'd leave that to TiVo to decide. (Though I partly opted to stick w FF/RW owing to this competing request.) Either way I'm happy, so long as one doesn't have to use 'C' or navigate back to the category bar.

    I need the option back to turn folders off so I can sort my "Recordings" list by date!

    If they would do FF, they should change the other one, too. Consistency is worth a lot. And they have a chance to do so with a fresh start.

    And for the reason of consistency, I don’t except left for back to come back. It wasn’t consistent. People just got used to where it worked and just thought “left means back” but it didn’t always. That was one of my first rations so I usually used back for back.

    Yeah I think the large icons have a place....but not on the tuners/favs lists. Same as hitting up while watching a show......too much clutter with the icons.

    I used to always use the date sorting with the HDUI. I never really liked using the season/episode sorting. But with Hydra it's much cleaner looking and easier for me to use Season/episode sorting. And I can quickly access the latest episode recorded.

    When we go to stream from our other Tivo in the house, when we are done with the show and delete it, we are brought back to the current Tivos My Shows list - not the remote box's My Shows list. Hoping this is a bug that can be fixed to mimic the old functionality.

    Most of my complaints are around app support. I'm hoping that Hydra will either make it easier for them to address this or free up resources to do so.
    • App updates please. Some existing streaming apps are getting a bit outdated.
    • More apps; CBS, Showtime, etc... I have to use my Xbox for too many of them and the Tivo should have all major streaming apps. If it's on Xbox or PS4 there's no reason Tivo shouldn't have it too.
    • Get Comcast to allow HBOGo. We're years in and I still can't use the app on my Tivo, but for some reason Comcast is fine with me using my Xbox. There's a solution/compromise to this Tivo, figure it out. This isn't all on Comcast.
    • HDR implementation
    • I'd like to see a feature where you can view the bitrate of the current video stream, similar to what you can do on Netflix but for the cable streams going through the Tivo. This way I can see exactly how much Comcast is compressing my crappy video. You used to be able to see file size and do the math, but I don't think you can anymore. Anyways, this would be useful.

    After a Mini reboot, and selecting Live TV, my Mini takes me to channel 1. Channel 1 for Comcast Xfinity subscribers is On Demand...except channel 1 for On Demand does not work on a TiVo device (it's for the X1 boxes from Comcast). TiVo users access On Demand via the On Demand app.

    Can we have the Mini, after a reboot and selecting Live TV take me to a different channel? I know my Mini, pre-Hydra, never took me to channel 1 after a reboot.

    I didnt update yet and dont think I plan to since I am a new user and I am just getting used to this as is but I really would love to be able to mark something as watched or watched items just be highlighted in a different text color. It's annoying to have to go back and skip a bit so it shows partially watched so my girlfriend knows what I have watched already and I also know. It's something so simple and might not be a big deal to most but it just seems like something that can easily be added.

    Update the TiVo remote in the iOS app to include the - wait for it - Back button.

    Without it, the remote simply doesn’t work with the new interface :(

    Allow people to click play if there is only 1 show in the My Shows list. Having one TiVo on Hydra and another on the old interface.....you really do get a chance to see just how many extra steps it takes to do some things in Hydra.

    Appreciate the pointer - for me, though, "Zoom" works just like it always did; i.e., maximizes the video window and brings it to the front.

    . . . which, of course, has the effect of getting out of wherever you are ;) but not just one screen back like the "Left" button used to do and the "Back" button is supposed to do now.

    I'd be surprised if they don't have an app update in queue to address this, just surprised the app (which I use all the time) is now pretty much unusable.

    Using Hydra? Zoom doesn’t exist anymore.

    Not sure what you mean, "doesn't exist" LOL

    The "Zoom" button is still in the "soft" remote, effect is it exits whatever you're doing and takes you to whatever was playing in the preview window. Same as before.

    Perhaps you meant it's not *intended* to exist, or should not exist, whatever . . . but it's still there, and that's what it does on my Hydra Roamio.

    The app developers make the apps, not TiVo, this has been discussed a lot on this forum and the consensus seems to be that the TiVo installation base is too small for them to spend lots of time developing them. As for Comcast and HBO Go, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Love this idea, with one additional ability to one pass a show on a remote TIVO.
