Is there anyway to group channels together

Message 1 of 2

I hve the Spanish add on for example, and the spanish channels are all over the dial. I'd like to group together for channel surfing, how do I do it?

For Example, i'd like to group 1663, 1724,1549, 1685, 1686, 1540, 1680, 1681, 1536, 1702-1707, 1563, 10, 277, 23, 20, 1722, 1520, 1741, 1521, 1503, 1523 ------you get the idea. I want to be able to hit up or down arrow and stay within the channels I've group without having to look at the guide and try to figure out what the next posible station is with the programming I want. Can you do this somehow? i'm an educational TV fan to and I'd like to group together the Dsicorvery, history, PBS, Net Geo adn so forth too. I want to channel surf without missing some of my favoite channels, how do I group them together so I can channel surg with the up/down arrows?

Verizon allows you to create two channel groups, Favorites1 and Favorites2. These can be set from either the options key on the remote, or by selecting Favorites in  Menu>'settings. Unfortunately there are only two such groups, and only 1 can be 'active' at one time.


Stetting them up can be quite tedious because you can either add all channels to the favorites list, and then delete the ones you don't want one by one, or you can just add the channels to the favorites list one by one.


You can then set your STB/DVR to only tune to channels  that are in the currently selected favorite group with channel up/channel down. The channels that are not in the currently selected favorite channel list will be skipped over by channel up/down, but are still accessible by entering the channel number they are on.
