Genie Remote capability questions

Just got a new installation and going through everything. Was a Dish Network customer.

I have three basic questions.

1. Is there any way for the on screen tv guide to highlight which programs are new without going into the info? The Dish TV guide, the TIVO TV guide  and my newspaper TV guide have a little "NEW" icon in the time slot, otherwise it is a re-run.

2. Is there any way to set the Genie/mini to activate at a defined time. I set my TV and Dish Network receiver to both go on at 6:30 AM as my alarm in the bedroom and automatically switch the reciever to my favorite local station no matter where it was left the previous night. If I switch off the power saving feature, will that help?

3.Is there any way to control the TV on/off independantly or do I need a universal remote?

Re: Genie Remote capability questions

Thanks  for the quick response.

3. I have the new black and white remote for the Genie . I looked up the older RF remote and ordered a couple from the world's longest river according to wikipedia.

2 Its just a mode like the record mode, where at a defined time it will change to that channel without recording. This function will wake the device from its sleep mode.

Re: Genie Remote capability questions

iirc the non dvr units (h24, h25, NOT a genie or mini genie) have an auto tune.  not certain if it can turn the unit on or off

Re: Genie Remote capability questions

No there is no alarm/auto on with any DTV receiver, your TV may have an alarm that will turn the TV on and if you leave the DTV HXX receiver on with the power saver off it may come out of screen saver mode when it auto tunes but that is not a feature that DTV offers.
