I do not understand why anyone would go to this YET with a Tivo that has recordings on it...

I did because I liked Hydra so much. I intially upgraded a couple of boxes. But I liked Hydra so much, I upgraded all my TiVos.

I do see some minor bugs, but so far nothing major. Nothing that would be a show stopper for me.

Totally agree. I am getting a vox for OTA but decided to jump after good reports here today (this group can be picky, so it was a good sign) and the video posted earlier today.

Better to do on a weekend when everyone is exploring than later and you are out of sync with the community.

Looks like Clear and Delete Everything is non functional in Hydra, if you click it it just hangs and does not prompt you to acknowledge, etc. Same with Clear Guide Data/To Do List and Clear Thumbs/Suggestions.

Has anyone successfully uninstalled Hydra? I've given it a few weeks and am ready to go back but trying "Reset it Defaults" does nothing on both my Bolt and Mini 2.
Thanks,
Mark
It worked on my Roamio. I ran it for a day then decided I didn't need it. Not now anyway. -> How to Rollback Hydra from Roamio and Mini's v1

You will start clean - no recordings, 1P or settings. I had a spare to test with, so it wasn't hard.

What error? When you get to the first prompt, hit Info on the remote. What software version is displayed?

What exactly happened when you tried to revert the second time?

What Prompt?
It does Not recognize the key sequence to start the down grade anymore.
software is 21.7.2.RC9-846-6-846.
When running a Guided Setup, the TiVo pauses for the country. The Info key will display the current software version. When I received my Roamio OTA from the BF sale, it shipped with 20.6.3, then upgraded to 21.7.2.RC9.

I had a Roamio on 20.7.4 that I upgraded on the web site. After the Hydra upgrade it removed that TSN. Now the TSN is back and I put that Roamio back to 20.7.4 and put it back into its box. Funny, I put monthly service on that box just to look at Hydra. I activated it on-line. Then, after 28 days, I decided to kill it and called TiVo. They put it as inactive and refunded the whole $14.99. So it didn't cost me anything to verify an eBay box worked. I even replaced the hard drive for testing (a Seagate). It was old though: 13 Sep 13 was its build date. The new OTA is 31 July 2017.
