Favorites not working

I trying to create a favorites list of channels but it does not appear to be working. I selected several channels to be added to my favorites by clicking the thumbs up but only a few channels stuck. If I go back in and re-select a channel to be a favorite...it does not added it to the list. What is going on?

When you finish configuring your favorites, do you navigate to "Done" and hit Select?

If you just back out of that screen with the left arrow, your changes will not be saved. It's a common mistake.

The Tivo has 3 lists, "All", "Channels I Receive" and "Favorites". They can be selected when you press GUIDE button then Enter.

I am going to have to go back and retrace my steps here. What I have been doing is just pulling up the guide, scrolling to a channel I want as a favorite and then hitting the thumbs up button. I then hit A for options and select to show only the Favorites. Am I missing a step? I have done it right at least once because I do have some channels in my list.

What you are doing is adding a to a program on that channel when you are in the Guide.

In addition, in doing what you did, you may have inadvertently placed a on some strange programs. After correctly adding channels to favorites you should check your thumbs list.
