Can the u-verse remote be programmed to show only the subscribed channels?
I.E., it is inconvenient to see a movie listed of interest, only to then notice the dreaded !
indicating the channel is not included in my subscription.
I've looked at the built-in help and tutorials and do not see that capability.

Need to hide the channels not on your package....
Or select your package when turn receiver on...
Or create a favorites list of only channels interested in, up to 55 i believe...

@Hawkeye249 You don't hide channels via the remote but on the Guide:
Access the Menu screen (can vary depending on remote model) > Options > Hide Channels > Check off the channels you want to see > Save.
You have to do this for each receiver and if there's a free preview, you'll need to UNhide that channel.
And FYI, a power outage does not effect or negate the above actions.

There is no loss of Favorites across power outages. Been through a bunch or outages over the years and never lost them. I always recommend Favorites. The packages shortcut is useless since yes, it shows you what's in your U200, etc. package including lots of the the package crap you don't want unless you explicitly hid them too. The other advantage to favorites is you are in control of the channels you want to see. Using any other grid form means even if you hide channels you don't want when att adds crap, special events, advertising, or other special purpose channels to the package they appear in the lineup. They won't appear in Favorites. Also it leaves the full guide as a superset of the Favorites for, say, promo days where you could leave channels enabled that you don't get but are turned on during those promos (movie channels like HBO, SHO, etc.) that you elected not to get normally.
Just because one user claims to have had a bad experience with a power outage (and as I said that is the exception) is no reason for everybody else to choose their "favorite" (pun intended) method of controlling the channels they see.
