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.
Yes, and it was like this on DirecTV DVRs for a while and I had to keep Deleting or Unchecking New Channels that I did not want in my Customized Favorite Channel List.
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.
i come to this forum daily! i enjoy all the HD channels we get. It just gets me that the same people say if they get this channel or th at channel they will be happy< they get them and still complain!
