Anybody figured out a way to turn these off yet. You can't channel lock them and I have wasted hours getting sucked into their void by waiting to long to switch through them, They are a pain.

You've not mentioned whether you're using a V6 or a TV360.

TiVo-software (on a V6) allow you set favourites, TV360 allows you to create profiles.. but you can't remove any channel from the programme guide.

So the way to eliminate 14 unwanted (and unsubscribed) channels is to create a new, non standard list and add 300+ channels instead? This sounds like a programmer's answer. Anyway, creating a profile on my V6 box running TV360 software creates all new channel numbers making VM channel printed channel guide irrelevant.

What I really want to be able to do is lock them out (or get them turned off at source) , that way I can gracefully ignore them and they wont stop me browsing up and down channels because I paused too long and it fired up a streaming service I dont want.

The previous answer stands, and there's also no such thing as a "V6 box running TV360", that's a bit like saying "My Windows 10 laptop running Windows 11".

You can't remove channels from the EPG or remove them at source. Just ignore them.
