    I have only just bought a FVP5000T and have set a list of favorite channels using Freeview>Settings>Channel Settings>Favorite Channels but when I leave the settings page I find it impossible to find them. Is there a short way to get to favorite channels?

    Press Guide then + - Select change group and then the favourite list you want.

    Welcome to our forum.

    I have never got a definitive answer in the past, but is there some way to force the 5000T to display a user defined favourites EPG list every time?

    I am forever pressing + and scrolling down to mine and it drives me mad!

    I never found one. But as I only ever ever use HD channels the HD genre is fine for me.

    The answer to that is on page 2 of the FAQ at the top of this page.

    https://myhumax.org/forum/topic/how-to-make-favourites-sticky-1

    Basically what you need to do is,

    Select your Favourites Group and press OK

    Type in the channel number of another channel in that group.

    Press OK on whatever is currently being broadcast on that channel

    Press OK on Watch Live to take you to that broadcast, and the Humax will now be 'stuck' in that Favourites list.

    Mine is in my Favourites list permanently and I have to press Guide, +, Change Group, TV, only the rare occasions I want a channel outside of that group.

    I believe that A1944 is looking for a way of displaying the EPG for his favourite channels only, as opposed to the full EPG.

    OK, Stephenesque. I think I have tried that before and it only remembered for an hour or two. However, I have tried it again and will see what happens.

    SSThing: Yes, that is what I want and what Stephenesque's post appears to be about. We will see.

    Yes, that's exactly what this does SSThing, each time I switch on my Humax the only channels ever displayed in my EPG are the 18 in my Favourites Group.
