    Is it possible to select an OTA channel directly from the HR 10-250 remote? For example, if I want to see OTA channel 4-1, I select channel 4 on the remote and then use the channel up button to get to 4-1. I'm wondering if there is another key combination that will get me directly to 4-1 without using the channel up button.

    Thanks.

    As the fine manual says, the Advance button is used to enter the dash.

    Isn't there a dash printed above/below the Advance button on the remote?

    Thanks for not saying "RTFM"... :) though I actually did, and I missed it.

    I don't usually say RTFM because I know how easy it is to miss things in them. They aren't written that well.

    Yeah - I found it only because I knew what I was looking for and was certain it was there. Though it is described in the section on watching live TV. Anyway, doesn't RTFM mean "Read The Fine Manual"? :D
