I've had my 60" F8500 for about a month. I've focused mostly on the picture and viewing varying content. I thought I would play around with the Smart TV and the use of the Guide and Channel List provided by the set rather than the cable provider.
When I go into the menu the"Edit Favorites" is greyed out. This prevents me from making much progress.
I'm sure its some newbie thing. Can someone give me some pointers on actually getting my favorites lists set-up?
Note this is on my HDMI STB source. If I change to TV it isn't greyed out, but I'm not seeing any channels there.
Would love any input on this.
I followed the manual to try and customize the TV's Guide and Channel List for my Directv STB. The universal remote set up works fine.
I was able to delete channels from the Channel List. It looks like deleting those channels also got rid of the Smart Hub suggestions for channels I don't subscribe to.
But, for the following functions, the purported remote control commands do nothing:
(1) Channel List -> Genre. You are supposed to be able to "Drag Left on the touch pad" to pull up (I assume) a menu that includes a Genre selection.
(2) Channel List -> Favorites / Added Ch. Right drag.
(3) Guide -> Change Category. The "B" button when in the guide. The button isn't listed as an option at the bottom of the screen.
Anyone else able to access these functions?
