    It's up and running, but need a little help on 3 issues.

    1 Why are there tons of ota channels showing on my guide and how do I get rid of the incorrect ones? Channel scan shows only 21 channels found, but there are tons more showing on the guide. If I try to access any of the ones that are not supposed to be there I just get an error message, searching for a signal on this channel (V52)

    2 How do I add a channel to Favorites?

    3 How do I connect the TiVo remote to my TV so I can use the power off and volume buttons?

    I'm sure I'll have more questions later but that's it for now.

    First, you may want to grab the associated Viewer's Guide for your TiVo, from here:

    Press Guide button, then A. on the Channels line, select "My Channels"

    1. While on Live TV, tune to a channel you do not want.
    2. Press Select (This is a mini Guide)
    3. Press Left on the directional until you are on the Channel column.
    4. Press Select
    5. Press Select on Remove channel or add to Favorites.
    6. Repeat

    To show only favorites, you would need to go to Guide, A and "Channels: Favorites"
