    Hi, I am at a loss as to how to set up favourites on my 1100 S.
    Having looked at some of the comments on this forum it doesn’t seem to work for me.
    I have now almost given up and have made a list of channels and their number and use this route. At least that works.
    Perhaps someone else has an answer to this problem, as I’m sure I’m not the only one.
    Thanks for reading.

    Hi Jono 1,
    Welcome to the forum. To set up favorites, you simply go into Settings Menu. It does work when set up correctly. I use it all the time, but with a different Remote control, but it will work with the original Humax remotes. From there look for the section across the settings menu titled: "MORE". Then Icon: "FREESAT CHANNELS" Then you now have access to edit/add favorite channels. You then drill down & tick the ones you want as Favourite Channels. Then save when you press Exit button on your remote. If you want to add/delete favourites, simply return to this section of the settings menu. Yes, it is a bit confusing if you are not familiar with the various menus. The instructions are very basic. You need to play around to find some of features.

    When you next press Guide for EPG, as far as I can remember (I use an programmed Universal remote these days with different setup than Humax remote) all you need to do is press "LIST" on Remote. This gives you option of selecting various Genre inc Favourites that you have setup. It should bring up the Favorites that you configured. Trust this all makes sense & helps? Please let forum know how you get on & if you need more help. John L

    I think it is rather a lot of fiddling for most as you can't make the list selection sticky.

    Hi REPASSAC,

    I agree with regards having to keep going into menu each time, but I have got used to it.

    Each week when I programme my recordings from the Tv times, I simply press EPG, LIST & drill down/select Favorites & the EPG just shows my main favourite channels that I use, approx 25+ rather than loading around upto 200 channels. It works for me, but I appreciate not everyone may have the patience.

    It's a great shame/oversight from Humax/Freesat, that the favourites are not easier to access or even have a dedicated button on the remote, but at least there is a method of saving time when keying in programmes. John L
