Hi I was in the guide on our 605 (but I'm sure this isn't just for 605s so I didn't post in that thread) and the guide at the bottom said to press the green B button for Minitune. I pressed it but didn't see anything so I looked at the SD website but it still doesn't make sense. It says I can see another channel in the little window of the guide without leaving where I am but when I do it then leave the guide its on the other channel not the one I was on before. So it just seems like any other time I use the guide and change to a new channel. What is it supposed to do??

It is supposed to change the channel in the miniwindow in the upper right corner of the guide, assuming you don't have the full guide on the screen. So if you started on another channel it will tune to the channel without exiting the guide. It works for me but I don't use it a lot.

Hi, LONSat, well I guess it's working then, but then except if I press again on the old channel when I leave the guide it puts me on the new channel whether I want it or not so it seems kind of annoying, I can just click on the channel and do that anyway. Okay thanks for the info.

I think it used to sample the channel but that feature seems to have been lost in a subsequent release. I know that mine just switches to the new channel now same as the ok button but stays in the guide. Maybe some programmer decided that was the way it should work now? Is it worth a problem report? I stopped using it when the behaviour changed. (630)
