    How to you bring up the "jump to date and time" menu when viewing the guide on a Genie? The manual says you just press the - (dash) key but that brings up the Smart Search screen on my Genie.

    The fast forward button jumps 12 hours?

    The zero key does nothing and yes you can jump ahead 12 hours. But my old R22 had a "jump to date and time" menu option when you pressed the yellow button while viewing the guide. The Genie instruction manual says this menu can be brought up by pressing the - (dash) key but that brings up the smart search screen. Oh well I guess I can just keep advancing in 12 hour steps until I get to the entry I want.

    Using your DIRECTV remote press GUIDE. Then press 0. This will bring up the Guide Options Menu. You'll see the following...Sort Programs by Category...Jump to Date & Time...Change Favorites List...Pay Per View. Scroll down to Jump to Date & Time and SELECT.

    Yup, you guys are right-pressing the zero key DOES bring up the guide menu. I can't figure out why it didn't work the first time I tried it.
