I love lamp?
I got the message on my TiVo boxes to update as well (Roamio's and Mini's). No way I'm upgrading unless they force me or incorporate the split-screen channel guide. Grid guides are far less efficient and I've enjoyed that split-screen guide for 17 years.
I don't think you'll ever see this in the new interface. Latest version with 6 or so upcoming listings per channel in the mini guide is probably as far as they're going to go. I personally don't need to see what's coming up in the next 12 hours per channel, only the next 3 or 4, so I never really used the Live Guide and don't miss it. To set up one passes, I just go to prime time in the grid and skip ahead a day at a time. Anything outside of prime time I just search for.
Is the new interface opt-in only or does one need to protect themselves somehow from the update being pushed out. (I've already disable the app that alerts of the new interface)
Opt-in only for older units.
Then you’ve done what you can to ~defend~ against getting it — but be aware that reports have surfaced of the ‘Get New Experience’ app reappearing on boxes, but now with no way to remove it.
Thank you. I’ve been saying that for years. The left arrow is not consistent in the old experience. Never has been. Always drove me nuts because I had to remember if I did something that changed it. Or I’d jump out of a search because of an extra left arrow.
Back is consistent and better.
But opt out for new ones. You can downgrade a new unit.
In the past when I hit the INFO button I coukd see a list of what was on each of the other 5 tuners on my Romio. With the new interface that does not happen. Is there another way to get there?
Right arrow will do it
As someone who was using computers in the 90s, the Hydra interface is very dated looking. Nothing but siomple boxes on a black screen This is exactly what the early UIs looked like. Hell, windows 3.1 looked better and worked better than this crap.
I just rolled back from the new interface and the "Get New Experience" doesn't seem to be there anymore. Maybe they decided the half baked pile of poop needed to go back in the oven for longer, or better yet, just be thrown out.
Give it time. The app doesn't reappear immediately after rolling back, but I believe that it will.
I never had any cable boxes in the 90's that looked like the UIs of today. PCs are different. And i was responding to the comment that Hydra felt like cable boxes(not PCs) from the 90's. None of the cable boxes I saw in the 90's came anywhere close to what Hydra looks like.
the closest one would be the igude
I've been waiting for at least 3 weeks, hasn't reappeared.
Just my opinion as I have had tivo since the very first Series 1 and most everyone since. I just got a new bolt and absolutely hate the new UI. Maybe I am not use to it yet but like the Roamio much better. thinking of returning it.
Do a little reading on the forum, you will see there is a way to roll it back to the old software, you don't have to keep the new UI if that is the only reason you would be returning.
