    While the new version of the live guide is much better than the original hydra, it still has a major flaw. The stars are at the bottom of the tile, often obscuring the title of the poster art. The selected tile title should be in text with the description. That would also help with artsy poster art that makes the title hard to read at a smaller size.

    This only seems to be a problem with the narrow movie tiles. The wider tv show tiles have the name within the tile.

    True, with Encore the TSN does not always show, but I now I can move to the block I know is used by the Mini and hit Select. In the old days the Mini's name would appear. Network changes with 20.7.2 altered a lot of behaviour.

    I did check that, the support page mentioned the new experience app, but its not listed on this TiVo that has been to Hydra and back. My other two boxes that have never been on Hydra do have the new experience app.

    How long ago did you roll it back? I know that back when the Early Access Form was still in place, a rolled-back box would take some time to reappear as eligible for upgrade to Hydra.

    Seems like common software bugs not stability bugs. Hydra software has bugs (like all software) which are most noticeable in the GUI. But as long as Hydra is not crashing, hanging or having network issues it’s stable.

    Hydra 21.8.1.RC6 has been extremely stable on my Roamio 8TB and Mini VOX. Mini networking disconnection issues are gone. No more crashes. No more blue spinning circles of death on simple UI interactions. No more TV guide hanging or repainting issues while paging.

    As with 21.7.2 there will be future bug fix updates to 21.8.1 with RC updates.

    I'm glad my problems were very minor.

    Ever go back and read post 1 again? This was supposed to be a feature update. Seems a lot of bugs got caught also.

    Being the owner of a couple high capacity Roamio Pro's (6TB & 8TB; 85% & 90% full; 2845 & 3263 shows; 357 & 238 OnePasses) running Encore ... I'm curious if you experience crashes/reboots of your 8TB Roamio, and if they are more or less frequent now that you're running Hydra. I'd also be curious to know how many Mini's you have connected to the Roamio, as an added variable to consider; we have 7.

    I have a Roamio Plus (upgraded to 3TB) with 7 Minis (all v1). I just updated from Encore to 21.8.1.RC6 on Tuesday. I haven't experienced one crash or reboot yet. At first Hydra seemed a little sluggish on the minis, but seems to be running fine now on them. I did experience one or two blue circles on my Roamio the first night, but can't remember seeing anymore since then. So far, so good.

    i swear that was the first thing i tried with the update and it didnt work for me. I miss the clock soooo much lol. I must try again!

    EDIT: You're right it works now! Yay!!!!! I think I did the S-P-S-8-8 one (the 4X FF) Which still seems to be broken but I don't use that as much anymore due to SKIP. There are a few channels I miss it on mostly E! / MTV / VH1

    'Select' == 'OK' button (in the middle of the navigation arrows)
    'Play' == triangle pointing to the right (>) just above the yellow 'Pause' button (||).

    Does SPSPS (Select,Play,Select,Pause,Select) which is for quick clear of play bar now work in Hydra? That was one of my major beefs against Hydra as I don't like the play bar hanging around when using trick play and also don't like the pause ads.

    I can’t speak for the SPS code, but I believe the default navbar behavior relative to trickplay may have been changed in Hydra. I think the navbar doesn’t appear at all for Replay, and maybe even 30-Second Skip.

    Can anyone using Hydra provide an informed answer?

    My wife noticed that the problem with the live button rebooting a TIVO - seems to happen after pressing LIVE 3 times straight, as you would do when cycling through the tuners. 3rd time, the ROAMIO in question reboots. I also found that while under the latest HYDRA, we can't transfer programs - it lets you try, just doesn't do anything, you can still watch a program on another TIVO. Funny thing, when I tried it, after I finished watching it, I hit DELETE, and it actually deleted the program off the other TIVO. Note that I wanted to do this, but I find it very strange that it would allow you to do so.

    Does anyone know if TIVO plans to release bug fixes for this very buggy new version of the Hydra software?
