    Good point on UTC. Check CBS tomorrow starting now. All starting at 11am EST are "Aired".

    Seems that the first Airs are very rare. That might mean something. Note: this is not really important when compared to other guide issues.

    Update: If a new program "event" does not have a Aired date, it will be assigned an Airs date. This may be a new function to insure everything has a date. On a non-Hydra guide, there is no date. Fox's The OT at 7pm is another example. I can switch from Hydra to 20.7.4 with one button on my AVR. Makes for quick comparisons. :cool:

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks "First Airs" is poor grammar also. We should stick with OAD.

    I use this for movies that we didn't see in the theater which show up in a Streaming Movies folder in gen 3 UI. I go through the list every so often to see what might be available via streaming or to see if it's available to record.

    Hi,
    Anybody having a problem when turning on a Roamio Pro and there is now volume? Everytime I turn it on, I have no volume, at that point I have to reboot. Any help would be appreciated?
    Thank you, Jerry

    I just checked all my TiVos. At some point in the last couple of days, Plex and Pandora disappeared from the shortcut list on my Roamio and Bolts.
    Plex and Pandora are still in my shortcut list on my gen 1 Mini and Mini Vox. All of my TiVos are on RC9 right now.

    System Information: my indexing date/time hasn't moved since initial connection. Normal Service Connections are ok, no guide or 1P/TDL problems. Roamio 1TB OTA. Ok on Mini VOX. 21.7.2.RC9 on both.

    Same here. My Roamio is pretty snappy but the the minis (latest gen + last gen) are both super laggy. There are some points where I am waiting 20-30 seconds for something to catch up. Horrible.

    I had a whole 10 episodes of a show I wanted to do that with. Now I can't. What an awful decision. Who comes up with these ideas? Why remove such a useful feature?

    I can easily imagine people setting a OnePass, recording an entire season, and binge watching it, all with the help of their beloved TiVo. Instead, now you're stuck having to press play on each one.

    This Hydra experience keeps going down-hill day after day...I have probably 1TB of content recorded or something like that, and Hydra is making me strongly consider losing all the content just to go back to the original UI...

    Maybe we can all pitch in and compile a list of things you CAN'T do with Hydra :tearsofjoy:

    You didn't hear it from me, but. If I was really going to do that I would buy, from TiVo, something that held 3TB. Then copy all my stuff to that box (it should be downgraded to 20.7.4). Then drop the first box to 20.7.4 and then copy your stuff back. Final step: send the 3TB box back. :cool:

    So I take it that the iOS(and maybe the Android) Tivo apps will need to be updated to fully work with Hydra?

    I say this because when I looks at "My Shows" on the iOS app, all I see are the two shows(Fargo and Longmire) that I have set to show streaming episodes for. I don't see any of my actually recorded shows.

    I don't think it's a Hydra issue. The classic app doesn't let my Samsung login. No problem with the new app.

    Noticed that the title of some shows is not appearing in "suggestions"... just the episode name.

    The TiVo app is working fine with all my Android devices. Both at home and away from home, with my Bolts on Hydra.

    Interesting. It is now working at home. I'll have to try it again tomorrow away from home and see what it does.

    Don’t like how the show timer position jumps backwards on the screen when fast forwarding. Looks like it’s center justified with the arrows instead of left justified.

    Other people have said this too. Does anyone have any idea or comment as to why they have taken this BASIC feature out? They are ridiculous...:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
