Setting Favorites on X1 Platform

I have read messages including instructions on how to set favorites on the X1 platform, but none of the information read seems to work.

 

Does anyone know with absolute certainty how to accomplish this task?

 

I have spoken with numerous people at comcast, including field technicians and all are clueless.

 

Equipment specifics -

 

Model - XG1-P

Release version - xappl-xre.30P7

XRE Server Version - 1.30.07 (Build 4714)

XRE Protocol - 2.8.0

Receiver - Native Version 1.2.2

STB Version - PX001AN_1.22P2S1_PRODsd

Re: Setting Favorites on X1 Platform

to set favorite channels:

1. Click right arrow

2. Click right arrow again

3. Click on 'Channel Info'

4. Select 'Favorite'

5. Click left arrow twice to go back

repeat until done (it took awhile, I've got a lot of favorites)

next time your guide is up click "A" to filter

select 'Favorites'

Done... your guide will now only display your favorites until you change the filter

Good Luck!

Re: Setting Favorites on X1 Platform

Hi,  This does not work for me.  Any way I try to set up favorites, it only will take the first one and then I am unable to add any more.  Any suggestions?

Re: Setting Favorites on X1 Platform

Step 1.

Hit the guide button twice so that the big guide comes up not the left side guide.

 

Step 2.

Scroll down to the channel you want in your favorites.

 

Step 3.

Hit left arrow/directional button to highlight the channel #/description.

 

Step 4.

Hit the info button

 

Step 5.

Scroll down to favorite option and click the ok button. It will add it to your favorites.

 

Step 6.

Hit the last button. This will take you back to the guide menu.

 

Then just repeat this for all your fav's. If you want to set up favorite sports teams, shows, or people, then just type in the name of the item you want to add. example is if you want to add the los angeles dodgers as a fav, then you type in 567 which is los and then 0 for the space. Then 2643537 for angeles and then 3634377 for Dodgers.  As you are typing the numbers that represent the letters, there should be suggestions starting to pop up. As soon as you see the item your searching for, scroll down with directional down arrow and hit the OK button. Then you just hit favorite and it'll be in you favorites.

 

Hope this helps, if not let me know

Re: Setting Favorites on X1 Platform

to access your favorites:

1. Hit the Xfinity button on the remote.

2. Scroll to the 'SAVED' icon.

3. Scroll down to favorites and you should be able to see any favorite shows, teams or personalities.

 

If your trying to see your fav. channels you hit the guide button. You will see a yellow icon to be able to sort/filter. If you have you favorite channels set up, you will be able to check Fav. as a sortable option.

 

Hope this helps.
