I'm a new Edge/Hydra user. How do I show what's playing on each tuner?

With TE3 I could press the Info button and use the down arrow and it would show what each tuner was tuned to or the status if used by a mini, etc.

How do I show what's playing on each tuner?

I hit the right arrow key the other day and discovered the functionality that is mentioned above. I hadn't seen it before and wasn't aware of it but am loving that it is available and have since been making heavy use of same.

My one suggestion related to same is that it would be awesome if you could see which of those tuners is being used for which Mini's that may have those programs running. If I could tell that it would be a really nice addition. (It doesn't happen that often, but there are times when I have all of the tuners in use and spousal unit wants to watch something else live, only to find she can't because there are no tuners available. Of course she then is ignoring that at least one of the things being recorded is something that she would otherwise have wanted to see :p)

It's not as nice as I want, but the Mini using the tuner will have its TSN displayed. No program data however.

Note that up arrow gives you a mini, thumbnail based "live guide" which is functionally very similar to the old TE3 live guide. Rather than a vertical listing of upcoming programs on the selected channel, you get a horizontal one.

OMG. That's pretty bad. Before it showed all the tuners on a line. Now you get 2 tuners at a time a big image which adds nothing. (Okay, it looks nice, but it doesn't add anything to my experience) Ouch.

(Better than nothing I guess.)

That sucks. Last time I used it a couple of years ago, it showed all of them. Wonder why they changed it.

The new "spiffy" interface.

I think the idea is to update the experience and I think that includes lots of pictures. I take it more as dumbing down the experience
To be clear, I'm talking about 2 year old Hydra versus now Hydra, not TE3 versus TE4. I got used to the pretty pictures during the beta. That's not a big deal to me considering that's how every other modern video platform works these days.

I didn't think they had made any significant changes to Hydra lately besides Tivo+ and ads.
