TiVo Experience 4 Enhancements

Channel Management 

 
Channel Management is enhanced by enabling you to clean up an existing channel list before scanning for new or updated channels. This enhancement allows the channel list to be updated without leaving remnant information from previous scans. If the correct channels are not appearing or if it appears the channel information is inaccurate or outdated, attempt to clean up prior to scanning.

From HOME, go to MENU > SETTINGS > CHANNEL SETTINGS > ANTENNA CHANNEL SCAN

The channel frequency information has been added on the channel list to allows you to differentiate channels that have the same name and/or numbers. If there are duplicate channels, the frequency helps to identify the specific channel you want to add. 

To view the channel list: From HOME, go to, MENU > SETTINGS > CHANNELS SETTINGS > CHANNEL LIST
