TDS TV FAQs and answers

TDSTV-streamingAs you might expect, TDS TV customers very frequently have the same questions about how to get the most of their service. Well, we’ve got the answers! Find out how to customize the Program Guide channel list to show just the channels you’d like to display (and nothing you don’t), and learn how to set a series recording so you’re sure to never miss an episode.

Customize your Program Guide

By using the Favorites feature you can customize the Program Guide channel list (rather than listing all the channels available in your TDS TV subscription). Just follow these simple steps:

    1. Press the MENU button on your remote.
    2. Scroll down to Settings, then select Television and press the OK button.
    3. Scroll down and select Set up favorites and press OK.
    4. Select Set up to create a new list or favorites.
         – The Favorite Channels Settings screen will appear and all the channels available in your
          TDS TV package will show.
    5. Use the Up and Down arrow buttons as well as the OK button, choose which channels you want     included in your favorites list by checking or unchecking the box next to the channel name.
         – To see only the channels in your favorites list, selected View checked from the left sidebar
         and press OK.
    6. Select Save.

Record a series

You can record recurring programs, such as episodes in a series. Once scheduled, a series recording occurs as long as the series is broadcast. Here’s what you do:

    1. Press GUIDE on your remote control. The Guide screen appears.
    2. Use the arrow buttons to scroll through the listings to the program you want to record.
    3. To schedule a series recording from the Guide screen, press the RECORD button twice on your remote control.
         – A red dot appears in the program guide cell on the first press, and three overlapping dots
         appear on the second press. The three overlapping dots indicate that this is a series recording.
         TDS TV will now record the program at the same time on the same day each week. If a series
         changes day or time, the schedule should make the adjustment.

To cancel a series recording, press the RECORD button a third time.
