It’s highly likely that you won’t want to have to navigate or work your way through lot’s of channels that you have no intentions of ever watching. The 3View unit allows you to hide those channels from being shown in the Guide or when channel surfing using the P+ or P – keys.
To hide channels from view in the Guide, click on the Setup button on the remote control. In the Settings page, Channels is highlighted on the left hand side of this screen. On the right hand side you have a list containing Scan Channels, Manage Channels, Favourite Channels and Recording Defaults. Using the direction buttons on the remote, navigate to Manage Channels.
Using the direction buttons move over to the Channels column on the right and then work your way through all of the channels using the up/down keys pressing OK in order to tick or untick those channels that you wish to be hidden from view. You can also set up a list of your Favourite channels as well using exactly the same method. Just move down to the Favourite Channels in the list and then move into the list of channels as before to tick those that you wish to include in your favourite channels list.
To exit this Settings screen, press Back or Exit on the remote control. Now when navigating the Guide, only those channels that you ticked will be shown making it so much easier to both watch your channels and also set up any recordings that you wish to make. To change the channel order available to you in the Guide from your chosen channels, press the Guide button on the remote control and then click on the Info button to cycle through your chosen channels by number, by name and thirdly just your favourite channels.
TIP! If you want to hide lot’s of channels it might be quicker to select Clear All first and then work your way through the channel list just ticking those channels that you wish to show.
Whilst you are in the Settings screen, its a good idea to set up the default settings for your recordings. These defaults are applied to all your recordings but you can still change the settings later for any individual recordings as you set them up in the Guide or in the Info Bar. In the settings screen, move down to the Recording Default choice in the left hand list.
