    When I first got my Tivo Bolt and 2 Mini's I had found out how to setup my favorites on both Mini's that could be different than my Tivo Bolt BUT now I can not remember how to do it?

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks !

    A Mini can have fewer channels than its host but not more. If the host shows My Channels/Channel List the Mini can select Favorites. If the host is set to Favorites, the Mini has no control. I tested this on TE3, but it should be the same on Hydra.

    This would be new and different functionality than what I've been familiar with.

    The My Channels and Favorites channel lists have only been customizable on the host DVR, with each device allowed to select which list is active independently ... with the painful caveat mentioned by @JoeKustra, and also detailed in an older thread, here:
    ... though I haven't tested, lately, whether this has been fixed, or if a similar limitation exists in the new Hydra interface (the old thread related to the pre-Hydra UI).

    Thanks for the information, I will check it out....now that I think about it...that is most likely what I had to do in the past....I knew it was a kinda weird setup.

    It was fixed (the Bolt constraints) as soon as I moved to Hydra. Dunno if they fixed it in the older interface... but I doubt it.

    Ok, color me impressed. I just applied power to my Mini VOX. It has the same control of the guide as its host. Both are using RC19. Host is a Roamio OTA.

    update: one big difference. The Mini can't declare a channel a Favorite. So it still needs the host to make the decisions.
