    Until about a month ago, each recording had a bar showing how much I have watched the recording, but it's suddenly disappeared since around October 2017, so I feel very inconvenient. Have this happened to everyone?

    I don't remember what the old version looked like, but Hydra has progress bars on every recording.

    Thanks, I may upgrade to the Hydra interface later. Has anyone tried Hydra on Roamio OTA and works well? Is it worth upgrading?

    There are thousands of opinions about it in several threads here. I personally like it a lot better than the old interface on my OTA and Minis. I upgraded all my boxes immediately because I was tired of the old interface. But I will likely never upgrade my 85 y/o Mom's because she could not adapt. If you are the type who is resistant to change, then you should stick with the old one. If you don't mind a more Netflix type of interface with lots of thumbnails, then you will probably like the new one. The biggest sticking point for most is that the live guide is gone, in favor of the grid guide. The new grid guide does show much more information than the old, but still not as much as the live guide. I personally never had much use for the live guide, so the loss doesn't bother me. Plus you can still get the live guide on the phone app. The new version makes it much easier to find something to watch, IMO.

    Are you talking about on the My Shows list menu page? They're still there in my Roamio Pro. I'm on the current firmware/software, I'm not running the Hydra software.

    Thank you Mdavej for your comments. I will eventually upgrade to Hydra but currently just too busy to do it, so for now I'm looking for a quick fix.

    KeenanSR, yes, I'm talking about the bar showing for each episode of recording when I select a show in My Shows. Any suggestions for how I can get the bars back?

    On my Roamio with 20.7.4, I can only see progress bars in folders and when using the left column and partially watched enabled. I don't remember when it was any different.

    It's a bug in the latest update. You need to refresh the UI.

    Thumbs down -> thumbs up -> play -> play

    This happens after coming out of Standby.

    On my two Bolts (NO Hydra/NEVER Hydra), the progress bars are still there except for folders where the program names are very long. I have a folder for "Masterpiece", and all those program names are so long that they cannot be totally displayed. It seems that the current software allows the UI to have the long names overwrite the progress bars.

    Although this fix worked for me several weeks ago, the problem has returned and it is not working for me now on my Roamio (20.7.4). Any more permanent fixes?

    Thank you, Cherry. I missed your comment on Nov. 12 as I didn't receive email for some reason.
    The progress bar suddenly started to show up about a week ago without doing any actions on my end, so I have no problem now. I suspect this was the issue on the TiVo server.

    THANK YOU!!!

    I can't believe this still isn't fixed! My daughter likes to keep shows after viewing them, so we rely heavily on the Progress Bars to determine when a show is newly recorded, and thus at the top of our list to watch.
