    First… imI surprised there isisn a global forum thread to discdis the new Tivo UI.

    Things the new UI is (or seams to be) missing:
    - "What's on now" (on broadcast TV)
    The "what to watch" doesn't separate out broadcast from streaming.
    - "What's on next/later" (on broadcast TV)
    This would be helpful so I can flag what I want my Tivo to record
    - A TV Guide (vertical) listing for just a specific channel
    - A way to set preferences for suggested programs (ie: I dondo like sports, kids shows, reality tv, ...)

    All of that being said, the new UI is not bad. In soms wayw it's momo useful than the old UI. I lkke the fact that you put more rows of TV channels in the channel guide (though I wish you had added more columns for time slots as well).

    I do think the UI is overly simplistic. You should have tried to make it more polished/perfessional looking

    Stop typing with your nose, it makes it difficult to understand you.

    About the new UI, it's like it was cobbled together by monkeys with almost zero thought to how a Tivo is used. There are multiple threads on the new Hydra interface. Just search "Hydra".

    Sorry but there is no need for ANOTHER "things I don't like about Hydra" thread. please PLEASE just participate in one of the other bazillion existing threads where all of this is covered again and again, and again.

    And that's not the penalty box from hockey, either. It's Q's penalty box from Star Trek The Next Generation.

    Funny thing is, to me, not having this is one of the few POSITIVE things I infer about the new UI (not having used it extensively). I'm mostly joking about that.... but.. not joking.. I have a Tivo.. I don't need to know what is on LIVE right now, since I have far more than I can watch already recorded, and/or I can already look in the guide to find other things...

    Just show me the list of things I have recorded.. and I have long used an autorecording wishlist for "(pilot or premiere) -SEASON" to catch MOST new show premieres.
