Post "Channels I Receive" Problem

I do not know if this has been mentioned before, but everytime DTV temporarily disables a channel and starts it up again, it shows up with a check mark on my "Channels I Reveive" listing.

This is so annoying!

It most often happens in the 100-199 range since they activate different PPV channels at different times. So after a few days, I normally have up to ten new channels checked on the list.


Is this considered a bug? Since it is normal behavior for SA Tivo's to have new channels starting out as unchecked, why can't this hold true for the Direct Tivo?

This has been brought up quite a few times and is a major annoyance to us all. The guide is set up to display new channels when they appear. Unfortunately, this issue with PPV as well as the sports and special leased channels which appear below Sundance is one that can't be resolved. I end up cleaning out the PPV list once every couple weeks.

Showing new channels when they are added is supposed to be a feature but it's one we would all love to avoid.

Don't know why all receivers can't be like the old Hughes I had,it automatically marked the channels you had subscribed to.
You are right it is a pain and should be addressed.
