Have any of you noticed LOTS of shows in Recording Activity marked 'canceled' that were NEVER scheduled to record?
I've had that with a few. Like the winter finale of blacklist which was very odd. It said user canceled which was very odd because there were only 3 recordings scheduled at that time. There shouldn't have even been the popup screen for resolving a conflict in that situation.

I found if I change my audio setting and then change it back audio will "fix" itself and I don't have to restart.
I have this problem EVERY time that my Roamio wakes from sleep. I have to go into audio settings, change to PCM, go back, navigate up and down until audio starts playing, and then go back to settings to switch back to Dolby. With a Bose Lifestyle 650 and Samsung MU6300 TV, I'm not sure how the HDMI handshake across devices may be messing with the Tivo. It's becoming excruciating. Anyone else?

I guess my phrasing wasn't all that clear. I have quite a few shows listed like Andy Griffith and Sanford and son that I never scheduled to record, but it indicates they were and were cancelled.

Suggestions are off.

Sometimes shows get put on the to-do list and are then cancelled automatically later. I've seen that many times in the past. They get cancelled because when it gets closer to the record date, the DVR processes the current metadata and it turns out to not meet the record criteria. As long it doesn't actually record them, or cancel something it should record, I wouldn't worry about it.

LOL... my OCD has me wanting to know why. So if your theory is correct, turning recording off for all wishlists should prevent these entries going forward?

BTW... The entries state specifically that someone in my household cancelled them. Is that the same notation you have seen with these?

I can't address this specific case, but as long as I've known about the Recording History, I've seen weird explanations for why shows weren't recorded.

Another issue I ran into and I believe some others have mentioned is if you are watching a show live while it is recording that channel, when the recording ends there will be "title not available" in the info bar. I was watching Tracy Ullman live on Friday night while my 1P was recording that channel and when the show ended Real Time came back on and the issue popped up. ... .
Haven't noticed the CB popup "title not available" in the info. bar at the end of watching a live recording in progress on my Roamio OTA.

But it does blow me out of the now recorded program and back to live TV once the recording completes.

Is this normal or ( I hope), a bug?

As it's very annoying when you are watching a recording in progress somewhere on delay and the show is abruptly interrupted when your bumped out of it and back to live TV.

Do you have any wish lists?
My wishlist would include:
Make the "last" button work
Make it so if there is only one recording in a folder and you hit delete you don't have to click a second time
Make it so when you hit live tv it goes to the last live channel you had not the first channel
Make the screen more readable. The old user interface was easy peasy this one is much harder to read from across the room.
Fix it so when you are in live tv the info button doesn't say no information available when guide proves that it is.
Stop the unit from saying provider does not permit recording when you hit record in live tv when you know recording is allowed.

Is this enough for a start?
Oh, and tell all the Tivo people to stop being condescending to some of the people who are complaining and start being understanding that Tivo really screwed up this change (I won't call it an upgrade because it is not) and that Tivo is committed to addressing and fixing all the issues your paying customers are bringing up.

And making the Parental Controls work would be a nice touch.

I still think the Hydra UI is so much easier to read. I can easily read it from across the room. While that was difficult with the old UI.

Now that I've hidden my two Hydra Bolts away from view, I'm only using a Vox Mini in my UHD setup.

TiVo has always had bugs. And even when reporting and demonstrating them to 2nd and 3rd tier support, they are rarely fixed.

I am happy to see the Mini channel guide constraints bug fixed in Hydra (I reported it to a 3rd tier supervisor two years ago).

I fully expected to see issues in Hydra. I opted in early, and any major software release (beta or GM) is going to have issues. Hopefully, since they are no longer nursing an EOL'd code base, development will be more responsible.

Yea this is a bug. I normally have this happen if I watch live TV in the buffer while that channel is recording. Once the channel finishes recording you get booted to live TV and you end up missing the end of the show. This is in Hydra and the current release for Gen 3. I do believe RC9 fixes this in Hydra but not Gen 3. I think Diana Collins posted some release notes somewhere with the fixes for RC9.
