New features and changes you would like to see with the Favorites lists including the All Channels/All Subscribed lists:

> Hide PPV from All Channel/All Subscribed lists (Can be done by locking PPV and hiding locked channels)

> Change favorites list without having to go into the guide (for browse mode or channel up down modes)
 
> Uncheck channels you do not want to change to instead of checking the ones that you want (7X00 has this, 721 allows you to select all channels then do this)

> Add an optional sequence number to each channel in the favorites list, and would allow you to group your most favorite of the favorites near each other, so that you can change channels and guide and have your MOST favorite channels grouped together in a way that you prefer
 
> when you enter a channel number not in the favorite list keep the favorite list that you was using instead of changing it to the all sub favorite list (721 can do this)
 
> When setting up favorites lists, the "unsubscribed" channels aren't marked in red so the user is unable to tell if they are adding an invalid channel to their favorites list (501 can do this)
 
> When modifying favorites, let select work as "auto-advance" (501 can do this)
 
> When setting up favorites lists, you have to use the arrow keys to move between channels. On previous receivers, when you added a channel it auto-advanced to the next channel on the assumption that you may add the next channel too. This worked great when you were adding a "block" of channels
 
> When setting up favorites lists, the routine times out too fast. It takes a while to enter all of the data and if you wait too long between keystrokes, it aborts the routine and dumps all of your data (I have noticed that it does save the data at least part of the time).
 
> Add favorites from program guide instead of having to go to favorite channel list edit screen
 
> 721 - Add Hide Locked Functionality (2X00, 3X00, 3X1, 50X, 510, etc can do this).
