Thanks for this, but I hae now figured it out. When viewing the guide, if you press the "C" button, you can then select either favourites, or all channels with a few other options.
I am a newbie here and I know Gdkitty has been here years and Park a while too. So, I am not interested in stepping on any toes but, I also wondered to myself why would a resident expert comment when they basically say "but I don't really know because I don't really use it!??
** Mea culpe : I just earned a reply badge
Resident Experts are allowed to comment just like any user can which has or not used it. We don't work for Rogers nor do our comments represent Rogers. They are our own comments. If the user or RE choses to comment then they will and it doesn't matter if they have used it or not. It's a public forum.
Gdkitty did state " i couldn't 100% confirm".. So that also means that he is trying to help but isn't sure that it's correct. So another RE or user can come and correct him or anyone else at any time. We are here to help as much as we can.
I hope someone can help by sharing a way to easily toggle between cc on and off using the new guide. We frequently use cc (closed captioning) to ensure that tv viewing is accessible for one of our family members who has hearing difficulties. However, we only have it on when that individual is actually in the room watching tv as the location of the captions and their timing often cause problems by covering up areas of the screen that are important or by giving away what is about to happen by appearing prematurely. So, we frequently turn them on and off to be respectful to everyone's tv viewing experience based on the people in the room, often numerous times while watching a single program. With the new guide, we have not found a way of doing this without having to not only stop the show we are watching but having to go all the way out if the recorded programs playback section of the guide.
If there is no way to do this with one or two key strokes, the new guide has made life more difficult for those viewers who have hearing difficulties, an issue which I hope Rogers will fix in the near future to ensure that the Navigatr remains a quality tool for all. This is a minor feature to implement which may only affect a small number of tv viewers but will ensure that minority is given equal quality access to your services.
The "C" button does not do anything during live tv or during watching a recording.
How about using this button to toggle CC.
Like you, we use the CC quite often, but not all the time. We often turn CC on and off during the day. The only way I have found to use CC on the Navigatr guide is to go to Info in a live show (not recorded), and press more and then go CC and turn it on or off. The CC option is hidden unless you press the up or down button to get to it. I have not been able to use it any other way. If I happen to forget to turn it on while watching a recorded program, I have to get out of the program, go to a live show and then go through the process and then restart the recorded program In was watching. This is cumbersome and requires many more steps than before. The new Navigatr guide which was forced upon us and which we have no choice in using, is a step back in functionality. A new system should be an inprovement, not a diminishment. I hope Rogers will understand what the issue is and get this fixed quickly.
Thank you, guys. Appreciated. My point was simply to take a few seconds to validate your suggestions before posting it in a reply, since it should be quite easy to do so, and to keep the answers on topic (a lot of guys pointed out how to do it for live TV, which wasn't what my question in the original post was about). I appreciated the good intentions never the less, but the volume of replies that had very little to say was a lot, and since I came to this forum for technical opinions not social interaction, I thought that a bit more focus from the community at large would benefit everyone in the future.
For the few out there that are subscribing to shomi or used ROD and use CC, in answer to my original post, I got in touch with Rogers support and they confirmed it is a defect introduced with the new Navigator for which there is no workaround currently. They opened a ticket for me, but there is no ETA at this time. I'll keep this forum posted once I'll hear more.
