the 6200 has a feature called "vcr recording" its for changing channels if u want to program a vcr to record several programs. what you do is go to the guide, click info on the program you want to record, then select the "R" button at the bottom, it will ask you to confirm recording. This will change to the channel the program is on when it is set to do so, and may be done for as many programs you want that don't conflict.
hope that helps
however if u mean you want to have the remote change channels without having to input 3 numbers (ie. 004) or having to press enter, you can change that from the guide setup. I've got a shaw terminal, so here's how I get to mine, you probably have something similar if not the same:
Settings (remote button)>Main Menu>Setup>Guide Setup
change channel entry behavior to "Auto-Tune"
