Questions after upgrading to HDTV


Questions after upgrading to HDTV



I just upgraded to U-verse HDTV, and I need help with a couple of questions:


1. Is there a way to program the box/remote so that it goes to the HD channel directly rather than having to input the 4-digit (e.g., 1008) manually every time I change channels?


2. When I press "Menu" on the remote, it brings up the TV''s menu, not the U-Verse menu. Any idea how I can fix that?


Thanks for your help,

MLTSMT - No, direct entry of an HD chan number requires all four digits.


When on an HD channel, you can use chan up/down instead of direct number.


You can build a favorites list & pick channels from the favorites list. Or, just use the guide. Either comes up on the channel you are on, so you can change channels with a few clicks.


2. - Sounds like the remote is in the TV mode. Push the att mode button. While watching TV, stay in the att mode to get all the menus.
