    I've found a new annoyance with the Hopper.

    Found this when trying to move to different Holiday Channels. When selecting the EPG, the default is always My Recordings.

    This means I have to select another Favorites with SiriusXM chanels and navigate to them, expand and navigate to the music channel I want.

    Why doesn't the Hopper default to the last Guide Favorites I was using? Or am I missing something here?

    Mine defaults to My HD channels. I think I set that up at some point, IIRC.

    You choose the default EPG list in the favorites list menus.

    Even if you can set the default, it is still annoying to have to change the default! Why can't the default be the previous EPG? That makes a whole lot more sense.

    Agreed it is annoying. When you hit guide while on a music channel since it is not an HD channel it moves you to another location and then after you change to all channels you have to hit 099 and then expand and start looking for the channel you want. Way too much work, way more than it should be.

    My solution was to create a favorites list of just music channels. Saves a step or two but does use up a favorites list.

    Anyone know if you can access the music channels directly via channel tepy in? E.g. I can select channel 2 by hitting '2' on the remote and ENTER.


    BTW, I couldn't find a default EPG select in settings.

    Go to the favorites channels menu and the list with the green marker next to it is your default. You can change that. This will fix your 'issue'.
