IMHO:

- A feature like webby s describes would make sense and is certainly do-able in a software update. Different people might want to organize channels differently.

- DirecTV makes these changes, with NO announcements. Many times the added channels do not even populate the favorites menu. For the 99.9% of customers that do not frequent this website, there is no way to know what is going on, short of searching the set-up menu on a regular basis.


Isn't Dish coming out with a box that will allow regrouping channels this year?

I go through the Wiki for DirecTV channels on a monthly basis or so just to keep up with what is being added. It seems to be pretty up to date. I would love a better search engine on DirecTV; the current one is about 10 years behind the times. I would also like to be able to group my DVRed shows by genre or by catagories I make up. That way we could have kids shows on one list, movies on another and documentaries on yet another. I would also love to have an option in search when looking for a show that NOTHING comes up except the channels I get (not even PPV.) If I do a search for "comedy" I get a ton of results, but most of the comedy movies are not listed, just page after page of PPV movies. The entire search needs an overhaul.
