    Hi:) I did the breezy upgrade but cant see the tivo HD's but the HD's see the bolt? All wireless on my spectrum cable network.
    Also is the Hydra the name of the operating system? whats my HD's got?

    Hydra is more or less a code name. Tivo officially calls the "Tivo Experience 4" or "New Tivo Experience".

    Hydra doesn't provide transfers (Yet?). Transfers have to be done through the website. But I don't recall if Series 3's are still supported on the website.

    Yes, this is annoying.

    Tivo Online does not support HD Series 3. Hydra will never see the HD s3. non-Hydra will see the HD s3 and allow transfers.

    You can downgrade to the gen3 UI if you want (which will still allow transfers from your HD). Note that you will lose any recordings on the Bolt when you do this so transfer them to a PC if possible beforehand.
