Customizable A B C buttons

you can now customize the function of the A B C buttons on your ultimate remote. Just press either B or C to enter the remote set up screen. Button A is automatically defaulted to Search but this can be changed. You can also enter the set up page in the settings tab in the Menu

Nice feature - thanks for the heads-up. It's under Menu, Settings, Television, Setup My Remote.

Here's the direct link to the MTS Support Page.

Here are the choices:

You can also assign one of the buttons to your favourite TV channel.

I'm going to set up a "PVR Space" button for sure.

I've played with this a bit and have a few tips to pass along:

Favourites Guide - is also available to display the guide with just your favourite channels.

Toggle TV Aspect Ratio - will step through each of the stretch/zoom settings. When you assign this to a button and press the button, you will see a small icon in the top right corner indicating the current aspect ration. Press the button again within about 5 seconds and you will step to the next setting. This button will have no effect with a 4:3 TV.

PVR Space - This is actually a new app that displays the total GB, % available and the estimated SD and HD recording time available in hours and minutes.

This app is also available under Menu, Recorded TV, PVR Space.

Finally time to reprogram the Harmony remote to access these menus, I guess!
