I thought I'd open a thread here for those using universal remote control to discuss any programming changes / suggestions. Here are a few comments/observations from me to start with: I'll start with the BACK button -- that button is critical in the Hydra interface, as it replaces the use of the left directional pad button as a "Back" in Hydra. My Harmony 650 remote previously had the EXIT key mapped to the EXIT button, and I have since mapped the EXIT key to the BACK button command for ease of use. You really need/want that BACK button to be within reach at all times... A second observation for those of us that may have used previous generation TiVo remotes to program our universal remotes, you may have been using the older Window/Zoom button since that predates the Back button and the old EXIT button on the old peanut remote (meaning those that pre-date the Premiere/Roamio/Bolt line). I am guilty of this as my touchscreen was programmed from an old (DirecTiVo?) peanut remote, and here appears a minor difference between the remote code for Window/Zoom on some older remotes and the newer ZOOM code on the Mini/Premiere remote (I don't have a Roamio so I don't know what's on that remote). Similarly, the old peanut Exit button issues a different command than the EXIT button. So if you're seeing odd behavior, reprogram your remote from a newer remote that has "Zoom", "Back" and "Exit" buttons. As a side-note on the differences in the EXIT button, the old peanut remote EXIT button will get you back to watching full screen on a recorded program once you've gone into one of the menu options. For example, I am watching a recording am thinking of switching to another recording on my TiVo (or for some other reason want to go to the menu) and then change my mind -- the old peanut remote EXIT button will bring me back to my recording in full screen mode. I haven't been able to figure out how to do this with the newer remotes on Hydra (but admittedly I didn't try really hard and my one remote with an EXIT button is in RF-mode and once I got it working on my universal remote I stopped tinkering). Third, the legacy TiVo peanut remote "LIST" button still works in Hydra to get directly to your recordings. Note that if you use this command, Hydra remembers where you were in the list (I'd consider that a feature), whereas if you go in via the Main Menu and Option 1 (or via TiVo-TiVo) you get to the beginning of the list.
