I have never used standby, what is the advantage of standby that you are making use of?
Perhaps if it is valuable to a large audience it could be something worth adding to the ShortCut manu choices (or perhaps added as a hidden TiVo-9 shortcut)
Last time I checked, Standby had maybe 1 watt different power usage because TiVo's cannot truly standby and be ready to record. The only advantage would be if the HDMI port is not active for automatic HDMI switching.

Looking at my mini right now, "Favorite App"s only shows my selected apps. "All", "Video", "Music", etc. show all the apps available.
Here are the images from the Bolt+ Hydra. The Apps includes all apps despite on Amazon, HBO Go and Netflix are selected.
Did you see Steve's post? "All" (which you are on in that screenshot) shows all apps, but "Favorites" show selected apps.

In Classic TiVo, selecting Apps shows you only the selected apps.
In Hydra, Selecting Apps shows all app regardless of the selection via "A add & manage apps".
FAVORITE APPS are selected using the thumbs up not the manage apps screen.

If manage apps is supposed to do something, I've yet to discover what it does.

No, you used to be able to see and change the thumb rating from the info screen. Now you have to actually start playing the show before you can change it.
You clearly did not pick up on the fact that I was only quoting a portion of your post. I have not upgraded to Hydra and cannot review thumbs in the OS. I have no clue as to your other issues.

Red Did not transition on the My Shows
When displaying the Playlist the recording transitioned and there was no indication of the current recording. I had to exit and return for the red dot to appear next to the recorded program.

Program Count if 1 Lost on Back (with episode strop off)
When you select a program with one item and display the detail screen and press back, the list display no longer displays the program count until you reenter my shows or use A options and back.

??? I can give thumbs up or down while just viewing my list of shows. I don't need to be playing the content to give a thumbs up or down.
Interesting, I never even tried from that screen because you don't see the rating there. But yes, you are correct, I can change it there.

Or while in the shows list and the show/episode is highlighted, you can hit the info button and it shows you what the thumb ratings are for the show. Again, there is no need to actually be playing the show to do this. You can be watching something completely different in the window in the upper left.
Yea, that's still a lot of clicks. But your first tip works and solves my issue.

You are conflating two different elements of the interface that serve very different purposes. The second screen is unrelated to the first and is intended solely for selecting which program content providers's apps will be included in Search and One Pass. Select the services you use and unselect the ones you don't. It is not an interface for selecting your favorite apps.

On the first screen, you can chose favorites apps by highlighting them and pressing 'thumbs up.' Only those apps you select will then appear when, from the selection bar, you navigate to 'Favorite Apps'. If you wish to remove an app from favorite apps, highlight there and press 'thumbs down'.

Note that if you return to TiVo Home, then later press 4 to go back to apps, it will return directly to favorite apps if that is where you left it.

I am coming from the classic TiVo interface which had similar functionality.
Selecting Apps displayed the managed/selected apps in the menu when highlighted.

I suppose this is yet another case where Hydra has changed the functionality. The original implementation lacked favorites, makes better use of the display, and reduces screen transitions.

My Shows - Clear button on single on brings up Delete Everything in this group, should just delete

While this is technically correct, it is a group of 1 item.
When the show is selected, clear displays an X and deletes the item without a confirmation dialog.
It should do the same form the My Shows list.

Scratch Sound followed by loss of TiVo sound effects (beeps) audio

While traversing the My Shows, there was a short scratch sound and that stopped all TiVo beeps sounds. Audio still present playing videos. Restart the TiVo and the sound effects returned.

Unfortunately, due to other "features" of the new My Shows list, it can only show folders, even if there's only one item.

I miss My Shows having a mix of folders and single items for several reasons, but that's in the past now.

That has been happening on my TIVO Roamio for over 6 months now, on old UI and new HYDRA UI.

Have NO CLUE what causes that. Seems to come back on at will, and then do the scratch sound, and turn off.

Clueless, and yet another stupid issue that should not occur. What a joke.

This is not complicated:

Case Program count of

0: do nothing
1: delete single item
else: delete folder

Twice today, had an issue going back into Hydra from Netflix. TiVo button or Live TV was looping back into Netfilx, like I was reactivating it. Once it rebooted, the other time the issue cleared and I was able to get back to the menu.

A couple of points...the tiles across the bottom of the home screen is the "smart bar" which is supposed to show programs you frequently watch at the current time of day. It is NOT a list of the most recent recorded or viewed shows.

If you go to "My Shows" the bar that is displayed there IS a list of your recording and streaming content, ordered by most recent activity. If you turn on the Episode Bar in preferences then you get a set of tiles for the currently selected folder (BTW, this is why even one episode is in a folder). The tiles are listed in order according to the 1P or folder setting.

I suggest that before people start calling things bugs, they read the documentation for the New TiVo experience to see how it was designed to work, versus how you think it should work.

The New TiVo Experience User Guide
Come on you expect us to read 70 pages of documentation to better understand how tivo hydra works? Are you insane in this day and age reading documents is a lost art.. I think you are maybe expecting too much from us, don't you think? Jk.. very valid point you made.
