    I am still holding out for SOME method of transferring user video files to a Hydra Tivo.

    Still works here on our old S3 OLED. The "Instant Queue" is named My List now and is an option at the top after you log into Netflix (and one of the options as you hover over shows it to add to My List).

    You can also use websites such as InstantWatcher to add titles to your Netlfix List.

    Actually I was more hoping they would open up the tivo web transfer function to local files, not just those on another tivo. Could be handled on the web server end with little to no change on the tivo software.

    I have pretty much given up hope that the pytivo transfer mode we have used for years will come back.

    Not sure if these have been mentioned, but a few things that annoy me with Hydra;
    • If I press Info it gives info about a channel (recently viewed?) that I'm not watching. Happens every day or two.
    • The the left arrow doesn't always work in the menu you have to use the back button. Well guess what, the Back button and Input button are next to each other, so sometime the Input list gets selected.
    • The most annoying thing is every couple days once I turn on my home theater receiver, TV, and take the Tivo out of standby theres no audio. Tried different shows, changing channels, etc.. Only solution is to restart the Tivo. This has never happened before Hydra.
    Tivo really put out a dog with this new interface. Its' clunky and lacks good usability. Seems like the people at Tivo got in over their heads and tried to change too many things at the same time without really testing things.

    Does that happen on a Mini? Does it instead show the info for the last channel you were watching on the main unit?

    I agree with kevreh. The guide is almost unreadable from a distance. On one mini the info shows one channel but it is actually on another.

    I have a much, much easier time reading text(guide etc..) from 12 feet away with Hydra than from the HDUI. With Hydra I can easily see it at that distance.

    This is from a 42" HDTV set at my GFs house. At my place I'm between 5' and 9' away depending on the setup I'm using. But those TVs are larger.

    It’s a TiVo series 5. I do think it’s showing the info from the previous channel.

    Yes it absolutely happens on all my minis every day. I have no idea why or if this is a channel from the host.

    I just installed Hydra on my Bolt. I’m hooked up to a 75” Sony panel and the text is almost unreadable. It’s better on the two bedroom Minis though. They’re smaller...

    Programmed by a bunch of twenty year olds with twenty year old eyes. Dopes cant even think to use some matured people for beta testers? Or, give users the option to select their own text size, like every other operating system in the world?

    I’ve got to believe they didn’t test on larger size screens...

    I don’t know if you guys are kidding or not about the text size.. Since the horizontal update, looking at the guide on our Sony 65”, the text is now so large it looks cartoonish. And that’s coming from 47 yr old eyes. Or maybe, I hope - the complaints are about the guide text being too large now - esp on larger TVs.

    It’s not the size of the text on my 75”. It’s the resolution.

    That's not typical. I'm not seeing that on any of my televisions, large or small. That would definitely generate a lot of complaints.

    looks right to me, are you saying that your attached photo is what you consider "unreadable"?
