Re: Guide option to start from current channel?

Good to have them back, but I hope we don't now lose Vice channel!

Re: Guide option to start from current channel?

This has been annoying me for ages, but I've finally found a way to solve.. 

When you have selected a channel and decide you want to go in TV guide from where you were..

Press Power button then press Guide button the then takes you back into full screen TV guide from where you left it

.. This may be a software glitch but hey works for me...

Re: Guide option to start from current channel?

That doesn't work for me. Pressing the Guide button always shows the guide from channel 100, even if I've pressed the Standby button first.

Re: Guide option to start from current channel?

To start from current channel, use the miniGuide by pressing the OK button, instead of the Guide button.

Re: Guide option to start from current channel?

Hi,

It's been 4 years since this suggestion was answered by customer service.

I had the original TiVO from (20+ years ago) and it had this feature.  I find it hard to believe it is difficult to implement.  As pointed out by others the mini guide is not particularly useful

If it is a required feature of Virgin it would be helpful to know.

Thanks,

jdubey

Re: Guide option to start from current channel?

The work around of Standby then Guide doesn't actually open the guide at the current channel, it opens it at the highlighted channel when it was last dismissed. This is often the current channel, but if some browsing has been done during an ad break for instance, it will open at the last channel the cursor was on and not the current one.

 

+1 for the option to be available in settings.

Re: Guide option to start from current channel?

I would suggest this is VERY unlikely to be added, given Horizon is on the horizon, although pushed back considerably due to the current crisis.

Re: Guide option to start from current channel?

Same here, its frustrating to scroll through the channel list to get back to where you were. I only know virgin's box to do this.
