    I'm not sure what specific ideas have been floated or exist on the Wish List for managing Favorites, but I just thought of something I'd love to see...

    When you have the Guide up, use BLUE to toggle favorite status for any channel, adding or removing the selected channel to favorite lists.

    It could work like this:

    Press GUIDE
    Navigate to a channel you want to add or remove from a custom list
    Press BLUE on any cell in the row
    A pop-up appears with an OK button and two check-boxes:
    [ ] Custom List 1
    [ ] Custom List 2
    Pressing SELECT in a check-box toggles status: it's in the list, or it's not.

    This would supplement the traditional way to manage favorites throught he setup menu, and it would make managing custom lists super easy, since the user could see manage lists "on the fly" as they discover new channels or programs in the guide.

    What do you think?

    Sounds like it would work pretty well, I am in.
    Lets not forget the YELLOW button for the To Do List:D

    To me the setup menu method is easy enough....id rather they just give us more than only 2 custom lists though....we had 4 before.
