Tricks for Genie?

My daughter got a genie installed today. Are there any tricks we should know about?

These are probably all still valid on the Genie:

If you got the new smaller remote with it there are no color buttons on it. So when you're in a menu hit the "dash" button to bring up your choices. To change the TV input hold down the "Enter" button for 3 seconds, and to move forward 12 hours when in the "Guide" just hit the "FF" button. There are some other tricks but these are all I can think of right now.
