Re: how do I create a favorites list of channels?

When I press right arrow, I get a message that I am not connected to the internet and a bunch of stuff that I should do.  However, I AM connected to the internet (as you can see from this message) and it still shows not connected even after pressing the red button.  How do I connect to the internet?   Obviously it doesn't use wi-fi.  I use Eero and have a very strong signal.

You don't need an internet connection to set up Favorites.  

Be sure to press INFO to bring up the INFO Banner before pressing the arrow keys to navigate the menu.

Thank you - got it!  However, I still would like to know what I have to do to get the internet.

I don't think it's a DVR.  On the bottom it says H25-500 fir the FCC model number and 5368 2919 5399 for the made un China model number.

Doesn't matter.  Pretty much the same process to set up Favorites list.   But the  menus are different than the newer Genie DVRs.

H25's can't use On Demand as they don't have a hard drive to buffer the streaming content.

Right, there's no benefit to connecting an H25 HD Receiver to the internet.  Streaming/OnDemand requires an HD DVR.
