I think, the real issue is which way you go with "up" or "down." Some people want to go "up" in channel number when you press the "up"/"page up" key, and down when you press down. The way the guide works, pressing "up" moves you up the screen, but down in channel number.

SOME people find that "confusing."


They don't look at the guide to see what is up and what is down?

Guess they get really confused on a computer with a mouse!

And calendars must really mess them up.

Did it ever occur to you that your standards and other's standards aren't the same, and more to the point, your's are no more valid than someone else's?


No. Next question.

Don't feed the trolls...

As to the OP's question, there is no way to change the channel order on current Directv receivers to descending like you can with Dish network receivers. The way Directv does this reminds me of the old non-interactive Prevue Channel...

I didn't think so. Why not?

I use the quick guide and program the 9 channels which is better than scrolling up or down etc. I have about 100 channels which i watch in HD on my favorites. I program the quick guide for an easier way to get the channels/channel i want. Such as channel #2 (CBS) which includes the first 11 channels on the quick guide, i continue to program each of the 9 quick guide channels about 11 times. I have Max and Showtime, i use the quick guide for that, etc. I just press one button on the quick guide and 11 channels come up. Every channel on my quick guide is in numerical order, once you program the 9 quick guide channels it's just a walk in the park from there. I use the quick guide for everything.

You lost me. You use the quick guide and 11 channels come up? Isn't it only 9?

OK, i have a hundred channels that i watch. On the quick guide there are 9 channels going from left to right, top to bottom. What i do is program the quick guide so that each of the 9 channels begin with the first # of the set, i start with the lowest channel for the first one all the way up to 9. So when i want to watch two groups of channels, let's say 3 and 8, i can then narrow my programming to a couple of channels on the opposite end of the spectrum. Once it's programmed i don't have to scan through 100 channels.

Still lost. Mostly because it sounds like you have an hirde86 which you could have multiple QuickTune sets and I can't figure out how that equates to an hr2x.

Unless, Are you saying that you program channel 2 in quicktune first, and then use the regular guide to surf between channel 2 and 11? And then say in the QuickTune program next channel 206 and use the regular guide for 206 through 221?

Yes. In my case there are 11 stations on each of my 9 quick guide stations in numerical order. Instead of scanning all 100 channels, i have them in numerical sequence in sets of 9 @ 11. My first channel is channel 2 (CBS), my last channel is 693 (Fox Sports). So i have multiple choices using the quick guide but in numerical sequence with makes it a lot easier and faster.
