A positive comment about Hydra - the Pandora app is a lot better. It loads and starts playing MUCH quicker and I no longer get the occasional 2 - 3 minute pauses between songs. I am fairly certain the pauses were not a Pandora service issue as my phone never did it even on the same network

It seems like I've seen people complain over the last few months about boxes only phoning home like every 24 (or more) hours.
About every 26 hours, I believe.

It never connects during certain hours, something like 6:00 pm to 2:00 am, not sure exactly. A 4:48 pm connection would put the next scheduled in the 6-2 zone, so one is scheduled for after 2:00 am.

I watched the clip showing the Hydra interface and just have to say "Ick/Ugh". Do people really like/want the tile UI with a picture of the movie/TV series rather than an actual name for the folder? It's the one feature that I hated with Plex but at least Plex still allows you to use folders. Can this "upgrade" be put off forever?

You are correct. And if you connect at 5pm, don't expect a guide extension at 3am even though it will be your next connection. Unless you force connections, you will have one day with no added data and one day with two days of data. This is a pattern I have seen all month.

In many cases you can turn off pictures. I'm particular the list of my shows. The icon only shows for shows you are in the middle of watching.

I believe that particular feature is called the "episode strip" and it can be disabled, reverting to just displaying the textual show name.

Click 'A' within My Shows to customize.

I’m not a fan of tiles but the only really annoying ones are the right and left arrows for favorites and buffers. They are too big and don’t have data until you highlight them. Otherwise, the tiles don’t interfere that much.

Another note on Harmony Elite remotes: seeing some of the comments here made me wonder whether there wasn’t an updated version of the TiVo profile in the database. Sure enough, when I deleted the “TiVo Roamio” profile and added the “Tivo Roamio Pro” profile, I got stop mapped to back and other mapping’s people had mentioned. Thanks!
