I can't believe I never tried this, but I just found that to jump to the top of the ReplayTV guide listing you can hit the "jump" button. I've owned a ReplayTV for over 2 years and I just now learned about this.


Cheers

On the 4K RTV, you can hit jump while in the Replay guide and you are at the category listing. A down will get you to the top of the guide.


I would like a way to quickly get to the end of the guide. Anyone know how to do this?

I don't believe it works on the old ones. There are several navigational features like that on the 4K/4.5K's.


That one would be convenient on the 2K/3K just because the list can get long and scrolling/paging is slower.

Found this by accident the other day... if you hit channel up or down in the replay guide, it will move you 1 page up or down. Doesn't take right to the bottom, but it's faster than scrolling through.


(This was on a Showstopper.)

This is true of all pre-4K units.

No, Tims30 was talking about the channel up/dn buttons. I don't think the jump button functions the way 'mazin mentioned on pre-4K units.

Smooth,


The way you started the thread it seemed like you were referring to old units. "I've owned a ReplayTV for over 2 years and I just now learned about this." Obviously if its a feature in the 4k!

I just discovered a few weeks ago on my Showstopper that entering a channel number while in the program guide jumps right to that channel.


I can't believe I hadn't done that accidently before...

Many of these shortcuts are in the manual (;)), but some were added in software updates so manuals that came with the machines have drifted out of date. They used to be on http://www.replaytvfaq.com but that site seems to be down.


Channel Up/Down scroll by pages in screens that have several pages (EPG, ReplayGuide, Zones).


FF/REW skip forward or backward 12 hours in the EPG

I just wanted to confirm what barmar found, the Replay guide jump trick is apparently 4K only.


Big thanks ReplayBruce for the fantastic cheat sheet of tips. :cool::cool:


I never used this one:

"Press RETURN TO LIVE with a category highlighted to go to the All Shows category" but I can now see the potential to create a one button macro to always take me to a certain show folder. Of course using the "jump" toggle first if in a list.


Everyone... you did realize (on the 4K) you can rename/create/delete the category folders? Right now I have everything organized in 12 folders. I found few of the default categories applied so I made up my own. And you can change the order also, so that could make a clean macro from the "all shows" anchor.
