    Now for an actual helpful answer... Unfortunately, Hopper w/Sling also suffers from the favorites list glitch.

    Thank you P Smith.
    I happen to agree with you. Those damn Sent by lines drive me crazy and are totally unnecessary. Go brag to your kid brother that you have an Iphone or Samsung or whatever and make us all happy.

    I have both Hoppers and do not have an issue. I know that other do, make sure that you have more than a few channels in your favorites. I have like 4 favorite lists.

    I think the problem arises most when you add a lot of channels.

    Are those missing channels just missing from the list when you pull the guide up? Are those channels still displayed and check marked if you go to that favorites list in the favorites list menu and choose edit?

    No it unchecks them. If I add one, 26, it will not even remember it at all. I have to add 2 or subtract one then add one before 26 will stay. After a few hours its gone again and I start over.

    [SIZE=medium]When the channels are missing from your favorites list, please add them back and check to make sure they are staying in. We are working on a better resolve for this issue.[/SIZE]
