    By gum, most of my show episode specific images. I must of gotten lucky.
    This is an example were the episode strip options have merit and likely a constituency.

    This about more than re-skinning UI or a button press here or there. When core functions are broken, like transfers, that's not a matter of "bias". It's broken functionality and a step backwards.

    I highly doubt TiVo considered transfers a 'core function'.

    What other 'core functions' are broken?

    Hi gang. It’s been a very long time since I posted here, but I’m hoping some of you TiVO gurus can help me. I upgraded to the Hydra interface several days ago, and, for the most part, I like it. But I can’t find two things... the Recently Deleted Shows Folder and the Transfer Show (from one TiVO to another) options. Any hints on where to look? Thanks for any info.

    Thanks, I just found it after all this time... it’s only available under the All Shows category under My Shows.

    Kinda makes it hard to find, doesn’t it?

    You have to use TiVo online to transfer shows between boxes using Hydra

    Took me a while too! Devices moved to filters only, Suggestions is a filter and in some filter lists, Recently Deleted is only in the All Shows list. - ????

    Transfers is broken under the new interface, especially using pyTivo to transfer to/from a PC.

    The only thing I don't like is how the Tivo Suggestions are displayed. It shows the episode name and number instead of the show name. VERY DUMB!!

    It should tell me the show names not "S10 E27 Unholy Alliance" yet others do say show name "Through the Wormhole"

    And if there is a way to fix this, please let me know. It's not very intuitive.

    Good catch, that is a mess. And you didn't show, but the info on right with graphic and description doesn't have the show name either. The Episode Strip version shows the Program Name or graphic, but in the text version it is indeed impossible to determine what the show is.

    If you enable the Filter version of Suggestions (A for options) and view Suggestions as a filtered list instead of the list presented from the selection in All Shows, the information seems to be presented properly.

    I am always amazed at what falls through the cracks at TiVo (in this case a sink hole).

    In this specific case it didn’t fall through the cracks. It was identified as a bug before release but wasn’t considered significant enough to delay the release.

    interesting, no idea what the show is yet apparently too complex for a quick fix?
    Seems strange since they have the same list done right.

    There does seem to be a few issues around My Shows/Episode Strip, perhaps it will be a while before we see improvements.

    So apparently in my shows, you can press D to remove the 'large box picture' of the current show. I went through and pressed D over all my shows one by one and was able to get rid of all the pictures. I was so excited to have my simple list again... until one of those same shows recorded again, and the damn picture came back. Ugh, I was so excited I thought I figured out a work-a-round for the pictures. Don't waste your time trying that idea!

    They're obviously treating the suggestions folder like any other folder.

    I could have sworn I was seeing this on the old UI as well within the past several weeks. Are you sure this isn't just a Rovi screwup that affects everybody?

    2 of my boxes are still using the old UI. No issues.

    Keep in mind on Hydra the Suggestions Filter seems to be fine, it is the Suggestions Folder that is poorly displayed.
