How do I make guide show only subscribed channels?

Hello,

How do I do this?

You can't specifically do that.

You can create a Favorites list with only subscribed channels in it, and then use that as your default when you press Guide.

Sure you can, while in the Guide hit your Options button on the remote and Subscribed Channels is one of the options.

Sorry for the old information.

I have the problem in that it never remembers which list I choose. It'll keep it sometimes, then other times it will forget..

Somewhere under settings you can tell the Guide to remember the last state (or something like that) so it will remember what you last had set as far as which channels to display.

You can also create & set a "favorites" guide of whatever you want..
For example my guide won't display any SD channel that has an HD eqivelent above ch 500 ...l, so when I browse below ch 502, I only see in the guide those SD channels that do not have any HD equivelent ... & when setting this up, I have the remote's toggle channel up/down button also skipping over those duplicates as well when channel surfing without the guide ...

The problem with that is that you don't know when a new channel (ya, I know hardly happens) is added.

Menu > settings > television make sure MODES is enabled and at the bottom of the same page make sure Last Viewed Guide State is enabled.

then it will remember your selection when you are in the guide.

hit guide > options and select subscribed channels

Just keep in mind that if the box reboots it will default to all channels for the guide again and you have to select your favoriteX again. I know this all to well as my Mom will call me every now and then and say "Hi honey the guide is messed up again, can you do that trick again".

Thanks for that! I didn't know it was possible.

Sure you will. Just come on this forum and you'll see 15 posts about the new channel, and how H2 HD is still not available.

Speak for yourself!
I always know know ...
But you are right .. The "average" person will need to occasionally check the menu's fav list, & if there's suddenly a "CH 694 " w/ no fav heart, add it ...

Somewhere under settings you can tell the Guide to remember the last state (or something like that) so it will remember what you last had set as far as which channels to display.

I checked and it is enabled.. Still have the issues, sometimes it will remember, other times not.

Hey MeatChicken. If you can find time can you tell me exactly how you set up your favs to disregard redundant SD channels. I know you can go through every channel you have and do it manually, i.e., just pick the channels you want in the guide, but it seems you have found some easier way! It may not help my case that I have a Logitech Harmony remote. Thanks. (I'm brand new here)

Any time that the STB gets reset, either by the user, or by Verizon for overnights, it will revert to "all chans".
