    Yeah...the challenge there is that most folks add channels as opposed to downsize their favorites list. The current method seems the only way to address both philosophies on custom favorites (as Scott K mentioned). Since that process only happens a few times a year and takes a couple minutes to address...it would seem the pain is minimal.
    That's been going on since we started out with the first group of HD channels several years back. They'll inevitably always be a few folks who simply like to complain for the sake of complaining and a couple others who seek perfection in a world where perfection doesn't exist. Sadly, that's just the way it is and always has been. :shrug:

    I use favorites because I don't want to wade through the ppv channels and the porn channels and the music channels and most of the sd channels and the interspersed shopping channels. And the SD dupes of the sports pacs...

    I actually USE the guide regularly. I record all the stuff I like to watch regularly but I do a lot of live or casual viewing. If I have 20 hours of recorded stuff, I am behind.

    As for turning off and on, my main dvr went completely bonkers last time I did that, which I posted. Not worth the risk.

    I love having a Favorites guide and use it as my primary guide all the time. I can't imagine not having it.

    I also set up a Sports only guide so I don't have all of the sports secondary channels (Big Ten spillover channels, etc.) cluttering up my Favorites guide.

    Finally someone else that wants RFD-TV HD. I have been asking for that for 2 years. I guess we are the only 2. The founder was in talks with D in Nov. I have been trying to get info from him as to the content of the meeting. So far looks as if did not have success. Tough to watch that channel in SD as many of the shows are shot in HD and cropped both horozontal and vertical. Stretch-O-Vison looks bad on a 46" TV. Much as I want it I will not swap to Dish to get it. Just don't like their technology. Come on D how about RFD_TV HD!!

    Good to see the logos added at launch. Just need to update them with the HD designator beside them. No ION HD or Comedy Central HD logos as of yet.

    I'm happy about the impending availability of H2 HD but unhappy about the long-standing unavailability of CSN Philly HD! :)

    I use the favorites list religiously. I have it named Big Sexy which was a little embarrassing when the tech showed up on a service call. :blush:

    I'd like to have CNN International back. I gather from this old thread that it was dropped in 2004. I'd like to watch Richard Quest's and Christiane Amanpour's shows, for instance. It is carried on some cable systems.
