How 2 choose a "larger" TV Chl # on TV listing guide without scrolling forever?

How 2 choose a "larger" TV Chl # on TV listing guide without scrolling forever?

When looking at the TV listings online, I want to go to Channel 473, VH1 Classic, for example.  Do I have to scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll until I get there or is there (and there SHOULD BE) a place to enter the channel number and the guide should refresh and bring up the "page" where that channel can be found???  Where is it located?

If you are referring to this site: http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/tv-listings, then yes I agree that there should be a place to enter the channel number. However, you can make the channel that your referring to a favorite channal. Look on the left side, you will see the following buttons, "My Channels" and "Favorites," and "HD Only." Click on "Favorites" and then you should see the following message pop up:

 

Set Your Favorite Channels

Just hover over the channel you'd like to favorite, and then click the heart that appears.

Your favorite channels also sync with the XFINITY TV Go app on your mobile devices.

Thanx for all that but it would still require endless scrolling to reach the channel nbr in order to add it to a list such as Favorites. This is NOT USER FRIENDLY!! The more I try to "work" with Comcast's supposedly wonderful, advanced systems, the more frustrated I become. I'm not looking to pilot a space craft, just want to EASILY NAVIGATE the existing TV grids!!!! My long and problematic experience with them demonstrates REPEATEDLY that they don't give a rip about the end user as long as they appear to be the newest and brightest bulb on the block. They don't care if that bulb doesn't actually illuminate anything!!!! I must resign myself once again to put up with their extremely overpriced and ineffectual system until an actually viable alternative is offered in the Portland area. HA!! ...but I keep hoping!

I HAVE NO CLUE HOW IT GOT THERE AND IT IS SO NOT TRUE!!!!!!

If you are refering to the online listings at http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/tv-listings and you are using Chrome or IE (and probably Firefox as well), just use Ctrl + F on you keyboard and type in the channel number you are looking for, i.e. 473.  This is the command for finding something on the browser page which will take you to the channel you are looking for.  You could even search for the channel abbreviation name if you know that.

 

This is the command for Windows, not sure what you would use for a Mac, but I'm sure there is a command for that as well.

 

Hope this helps.

 

On a Mac I think you would use Cmd + F
