Can I view only the channels I'm subscribed to in my channel guide?

Print
Yes. Customizing your on-screen guide to show only the channels your subscribed to is a breeze. If you have a DIRECTV Plus® HD DVR, DIRECTV® HD Receiver or DIRECTV Plus® DVR, just follow these steps:

  • Press GUIDE on your remote
  • Press the YELLOW button on your remote to display the Guide Options menu
  • Select "Change Favorites List"
  • Select "Channels I get"

"Channels I get (fav)" should be displayed in the bottom left corner of the guide screen to indicate that you're seeing only the channels you're subscribed to.

If you have a standard DIRECTV® Receiver:

  • Press GUIDE on your remote
  • Press the YELLOW button on your remote to display the Guide Options menu
  • Select "Change Favorites List." You can set up one of the two custom lists to include channels you subscribe to. For this example lets use Custom list 1.
  • Select "Setup Custom 1"
  • Press the right arrow to highlight "Add Channels I Get"
  • Press SELECT
  • Press the LEFT arrow twice. A message will pop up asking if you want to change the current favorites list to the custom list you just defined.
  • Select "Yes, change current"
  • Press GUIDE on your remote

"Custom 1" should be displayed in the bottom left corner of the guide screen. This indicates you're seeing only those channels you're subscribed to.

NOTE: You must have an HD receiver (model H20 or above), Plus DVR (model R15 or higher) or Plus HD DVR (model HR20 and higher) to use this feature.
