    The font must be rendered at a higher resolution. Resulting in it being much easier to see and much easier to read from a farther distance. I connected my Roamio with Hydra to my GFs 32" TV this weekend. It was the same result as my larger TVs. Much easier to see and much easier to read from a farther distance.

    And perhaps that is why I've been ok with the Grid guide with Hydra. Since it is much better than how the previous grid guide looked.

    I had the same problem, took me a while to figure this one out.

    Seems to have been an update overnight? Pressing Back at the end of a show now brings up a small dialogue box similar to the old UI, rather than taking you back to the episode list to delete.

    Also, a few days after updating to Hydra I'd lost my Channel logos in Guide. There was also no live TV shown in the Guide window. That's been fixed as well.

    It’s been doing that since the first day of deployment.

    Sometimes it's bringing up the small dialogue box, and sometimes it takes me back to the episode list here. Not much of an issue. I'm just happy my channel logos have returned.

    I agree, it does seem overly complicated. It now takes more steps and remote pushes to do most things. Netflix button on the remote is a waste, even though I use Netflix - still doesn't need to be a special button on the remote (but I'm sure they get major money for that)!

    That's inline with many other devices. A dedicated Netflix button is the norm now.

    Is it possible to get rid of the giant show box when listing My Shows?

    Turn off the Episode Strip option.

    That does not get rid of it.
    My Shows displays the giant icons.

    These are distracting and reduce the list of viewable items to 5.
    It wastes time.

    My Shows is regression in functionality and only changes the count, NEW, SKIP to a new graphic.
    This is a net loss in usability.

    I used to use the "What to Watch Now" feature quite a bit. If I wanted to browse movies and sports that were airing "Right Now". As far as I can tell the only way to view this info with Hydra is to use the guide and the filter it. Anyone else know a different method?

    The option to go straight to the list is Go to Episode List: Yes.

    WTW > On TV Today > More TV Shows

    There are lists for TV shows, sports, kids, and movies.

    I have that checked. Upon selecting My Shows, about 40% of the screen is used by three large boxes which have no value.

    The screen is wider than it is long and the list is relegated to the bottom 3'rd. The list no longer has the icon ont he left, day, and date of the last recording. Instead, just black.

    An excellent TiVo UI can be found on the iPad. All data is preserved, Lists are vertical and there are no horizontal menus.

    Hydra is usable but I yet to find anything it does better, other than voice of course.

    If I turn off the episode strip, then when I am in the My SHows page, I see a list of icons at the top. But when I actually view the list of my shows, there are no icons. I will see up to 14.5 shows on the screen at once. Initially ten shows are listed. Then when you go further down into the list, you can see 14.5 shows listed. With the text of the show on the very top of the screen, cut off, showing the lower portion of text.
