When I first got Directv I immediately set up my Harmony One remote and off I went, well today I accidentally pressed the up arrow key and up popped " the 9 channel quick guide", I never knew this thing existed, I put all my news channels in there, cnsbc/fox news/twc/ect..., so no matter what I am watching I can easily get to one of my news channels, the quick guide is cool.

The "funny" thing is that this feature existed on the very early Hughes brand boxes fifteen years ago and was called Turbo Tune. I still have one in service in my office.

I agree it's kind of a neat feature.

What once was old is new again.

It definitely comes in handy for me with the obscure channels that I can never remember the channel numbers for (cloo, IONe, etc)

My wife was just complaining that our new receivers only had nine slots for quick tune, our old Hughes had three separate turbo tune lists. I use my quick tune for almost all my channel jumping, that way I don't have to remember all the channel numbers.

25 available channels would do me no good if I didn't know what was on them at the time.

I rarely use the Quick Tune as it is except for special events, since I very rarely tune to a specific channel unless I know what's playing.

Same here, I just don't have any use for it.

+1.

Nine is a nice number, not too small, not too big. Symmetrical, too.

I'm well aware it's not about the guide, it's about the quick tune, which only has 9 channels in it. I said I liked the one in my old Sony that had 25.
And others feel that's too many. I agree. I would use a custom guide for that many, so I could see what was on those 25 (or more) favorite channels yet still tune to one of them quickly.
