Re: guide colors

if you have x1 and hit the Xfinity button choose the gear then device settings I think then background transparency then press the down arrow for some other background options. If you do not have x1 then press Menu two times then choose setup then guide color setup

Re: guide colors

I can't remember if it's under device settings or preferences or another menu, but it's background transparency you're looking for. Just look around, there aren't too many menus after clicking the gear icon to go through so it should be easy to find.

John's got it, look for background darkness level

Re: guide colors

I found that option to change the color on the background of the guide, but it won't stay on what I choose. I set my background transparency to 11, I think that's the darkest it will go, to show no transparency at all, then you hit the down arrow and it will give you the option to change guide colors. There are several cool options to choose from, but everytime I choose one, hit ok, get out of the guide, then go back a little while later, it has resorted back to the black screen. It won't stay on what I set it on.

After you choose the background, Press the LAST BUTTON, not the OK button.... it will stick if you do that!

Re: guide colors

Does anyone happen to know why sometimes when viewing the guide the words all run together, or there are words running into other words and you can't read it?
