Can't get FAVORITE CHANNELS set up on TV using XR2 Remote

The very small cable "box" is a Model HD-DTA100u/4305. The Remote is a XR2 v3-UGU.  All of the buttons seem to work EXCEPT creating FAVORITE CHANNELS.  I hit the Fav Button and nothing happens.  What's up???  I would really like to look at fewer channels when searching for shows to watch.

As best I can tell, digital adapters (DTAs) don't have a Favorites function. You'd need replace the adapter with a full cable box. Note that your Favorites list is stored in the box, not the remote.

I was afraid of that. Thanks!
If anyone else has a suggestion, I'd love to hear it.
