Program STB to tune to a channel when turned on

Message 1 of 2

I'm new to FiOS now that it's available in my neighborhood in Brookyn. I could not get rid of TWC fast enough. lol. While I miss NY1 and Pat Kiernan, I am enjoying FiOS TV & internet speeds so far. 


I was trying to figure out how to set the STB to tune to a specific channel when turned on. Is this possible? 


Also, is there a way to showonly HD channels in the Favorites? in Favorites 1, I have specific channels. In Favories 2, i have it set to all subscribed channels but I'd like it to filter out non-HD channels since I never watch them. I have a feeling the answer is no but thought I'd ask to be sure. 


Thank you!

Whatever channel you had on when you turned off the STB is the channel you get when you turn it back on.


I don't know about the favorites but you get set the Guide to show only the HD channels. Press the Guide button. Then press the Options button and select HD channels and press the OK button. Now the guide will only show the HD channels.
