    On this the eve of the TiVo Hydra/Gen4 User Interface, I thought that it might make sense to establish a separate thread where users' reviews and comments on the new UI could be consolidated. Feel free to use this thread for that purpose.

    Given the breath of the topic, I separately have put up a TiVo VOX/voice remote control reviews and comments thread (under the TiVo Coffeehouse - TiVo Discussion sub-forum) and a TiVo Mini VOX/4K reviews and comments thread (under the TiVo Mini sub-forum), to try to make it easier for people to find what they might be looking for. Feel free to use those threads as well.

    Exciting times!

    According to TiVo_Ted they will start migrating the servers at midnight PDT but it might be a couple hours before the link is available

    Let’s see some screen shots of how things look on Hydra! Very curious to see how Hydra is different from Gen3...

    My quicktake....

    1st couple minutes it looks like a soso-cableCo STB system upgrade

    after a few minutes and bouncing through menus -- I must say its sharp clean and very modern! I like it. Lets see how it goes over the next few days!

    Well I can see my Other Tivos... would like to transfer shows as its way easier to watch that way...But at the end of the day I can still stream it so its not all that bad...

    Over all my first impressions are very favourable. Like the zippiness of the update. but where is the downgrade app that was supposed to be there.
