That is exactly the reason hotels want a head-end instead of STBs in rooms. Many people can't or won't learn the steps beyond On/Off Channel Up/Down Volume Up/Down.Thanks for all your time on that post. I may end up doing this at some point but now I have an elderly father who can no understand anything except channel up and down, volume up and down. Thats why I wanted it over ATSC or QAM, to use the tv's tuner.
With FTA stuff, depending on the box, you can set up channel Favourites which can make it easier except for the delay if there is a motor in play.
