The Customize settings allow you to specify options related to customizing your TV user interface. 

To customize settings:

  1. Press menu, and then select Apps & More > Settings > Customize.

  2. Navigate to the setting you want to change, and press ok.

    The options for that setting appear.

  3. Scroll up and down the list to select the desired option, and then press ok to set it.

The settings you can change on this screen are:

Settings Description
Which channels are visible Set all on-screen guides to automatically hide channels to which you do not subscribe or show all channels. This is a simple way to quickly customize your guides.
Customized guides Set up multiple on-screen guides, assign them names, and specify which channels appear in your custom guides.
Color categories in TV guide This setting allows you to enable or disable color categories in the on-screen guide. If you enable color categories, certain colors indicate the type of programming. For example, purple indicates a movie, and green indicates sports.
Skip forward time The amount of time you fast forward a recording for each press of the skip forward button. All the Bluetooth remote control options are available here.
Skip back time The amount of time you rewind a recording for each press of the skip back button. All the Bluetooth remote control options are available here.
Inactivity timeout The amount of time an overlay or other screen (such as the on-screen guide or list of recorded shows) is displayed with no one actively interacting with it before it disappears and the current content resumes play on the entire screen.
Start new recording This setting allows you to automatically add a number of minutes to the beginning of new recordings. For example, some shows start a few minutes early, so you can set this to, say, 5 minutes to ensure that you won't miss the beginning of any show. The default setting is 5 minutes. If you do not want to pad the beginning of your recordings, set this to None.
End new recording This setting allows you to automatically add a number of minutes to the end of new recordings. For example, some shows end a few minutes late, so you can set this to, say, 5 minutes to ensure that you won't miss the end of any show. The default setting is 5 minutes. If you do not want to pad the end of your recordings, set this to None.
Display current weather in header This setting allows you to display or hide the weather icon in the top right of the screen whenever the video is squeeze back to a thumbnail.

Customize settings apply to every Fiber-connected TV in your home. For example, if you create a custom guide, the guide appears on all of your Fiber-connected TVs.
