    Joe... it might seem petty or trivial, but I spent the extra money for the Mini VOX so I can use one remoter to access all of my content... having to set a timer every time we turn the tv on at night is doable, but annoying ;).

    And again, the Bolt works a certain way so why can’t the Mini ?

    No I didn’t say that... Aaron asked if my tv had an inactivity time which it does not.

    As I explained it’s just annoying to have to set a timer each time you turn in the tv... if the mini worked like the bolt (no screen saver and turned off it’s hdmi output when going into “sleep” mode)I wouldn’t have to.

    A petty request. But it’s inconsistent across the product line and this is a feature request thread after all... not a workaround thread ;)

    The bolt has an auto sleep mode?

    Maybe this is new in Hydra but I just put my mini in sleep mode and the output turned off.

    Yes...

    The Mini has a screen saver after hours of inactivity... which acts differently than what it does by manually putting it into Standby...

    The Bolt goes into standby based on the Power Saving setting.... and does turn off its output. Which is how I would like the Mini to act :).

    The setting is in Settings > Remotes and Devices...

    I hadn't heard of this feature before. And so, if you're watching an hour show or a movie and are simply lying or sitting there, you need to wave at the TV periodically? ;)

    In the previous software, if I hit the Select button it brought up the 3 line mini guide while keeping the full screen of the current channel. Bring that feature back. Another feature request would be when hitting the Enter key for the last channel, display a list of say the previous 5 channels you watched rather than just toggling between 2 channels.

    Try pressing the up arrow while on live TV, its not the same, but it shows a single channel and what's on it throughout the day going right. After initial up press, you can go up or down to change the channel displayed.

    Thanks for that. That is essentially the Live Guide effect but in tile format. I can live with that though I think the live guide is superior.

    I totally agree that the Live Guide is superior to the tile thing that they put in. The tile thing severely limits the shows you see, so it does defeat the one strong point that Live Guide proponents like, lots of shows in the future of a single channel. The arrow trick shows about the same amount as the grid guide.

    • Digital Overlap Protection. If two shows on the same channel and one is set to record longer or start earlier, the two recordings can share one tuner and split successfully. This was available briefly a few years ago, but was never perfect. I was fine with the imperfect implementation. Made my life much easier.
    • HBO Now. I have an HBO subscription through Amazon Channels. In order for TiVo to show me what movies are available, I have enabled HBO Go, which I can't use. It does help me find shows, but I have go to Amazon to watch them while TiVo wants to take me to HBO Go.

    Forgive me if someone already mentioned, but just realized S-P-S-3-0-S still works as a toggle.

    Option for “Live Guide”
    Option to reduce number of lines in Grid guide to Increase the Font. Or just knock a few lines out so the font size increases.

    Agree. Scheduling consecutive recordings on the same channel to the same tuner should reduce the chance of conflicts.

    1) Live Guide
    2) Ability to pull from a computer (with Tivo Desktop)
    3) Ability to pull from another Tivo (not stream, but pull)

    It may not have been readily apparent you could do this, but I was able to set one passes on remote TiVo's in the classic legacy UI.

    After connecting to the remote device Show list new One Passes would be added to that device until you returned to the home device. The remote device name would show at the top of the screen to indicate that was where the One Pass would be created.

    Here you can see where I am about to set up a One Pass on a TiVo I don't even have connected to a TV, I call it my Archive box for long term program storage.

    Compare that to the screen when you add a one pass to the "home" tivo, you don't see the Device name at the top of the screen.

    I have not been able to duplicate this capability with Hydra
