    quick question (although i think i unfortunately know the answer already)...
    can i change the channel list order (not the actual numbers), eg, can i have, for example, the guide display this order bbc1, bbc2, bbc3, bbc4, itv1, itv2 etc....

    Having not been able to sucesfully google for the info i'm thinking this isn't possible, but i would be happy to be proved wrong :)

    Sounds like there should be a "but ..." in there?

    Just out of curiosity, why would you want to change the order?

    If you've deselected any channels that you don't watch or want to record from then only your 'favourite' channels will be listed anyway...

    I would be interested in having channels that i watch most regularly appear first.

    So when I hit the guide button I'd BBC1, 2, ITV1, 2, 3, CH4, CH5, Skysports 1 etc, Movies 1 etc and then other channels I watch less often appear afterwards.

    Can't speak for the OP though

    thats my reasons too Raisltin. It's annoying to have to keep skipping pages of channels just to get the ones you want every time. Deselecting channels is no good, because there *might* be something on the channel once in a blue moon.

    Have you tried using "favourite" channels? You can toggle the onscreen overlay to only show a subset if you prefer.

    Yeah, but it still only shows them in the preset order, not in the order I would prefer.

    Not to worry, not a big deal.

    The ultimate answer, of course, is just not to watch live TV ;):D
