    We noticed when we input the channel number on our Genie receiver that the info banner remains for 30 seconds.

    Normal changing of channels it only remains for the 4 seconds we have it set for in Settings/Display/Preferences.

    Is there anyway to change that setting of 30 seconds?

    After you enter the channel number, press the Enter button on the lower right hand side of the remote and see if it changes.

    That works. I suppose we just need to get use to pressing the Enter button... although we should not have to... and there should be some way to change that setting. 30 seconds is much too long.

    Thanks!

    Ehhh... something is amiss. My parents just had their Genie installed and it does not do this. When the number pad is used to change the channel it is no different than using the channel up and down button. The display does not include the additional info section and it goes away within the time limit set in the Settings/Display/Preferences.

    Either there is a way to set this... or one or the other receiver is ill.
