Control4 System User Guide

Channels

Use the Control4® system Watch > Channels icons on your Navigators to watch your television's local, cable or satellite channels or any channels you or your dealer add to your project (using Composer ME or Composer HE). You can watch all TV stations from one view regardless of the source (satellite, cable TV, plasma television, and so on). Or you can choose from the Channels, Genres, and Guides on your remote, or Favorites (not supported on MyHome apps except for MyHomePC).

 

Control4 recommends that you use this icon to get to your favorite channels quickly (rather than using the Television or other Watch-related icons).

Prerequisites

Check with your Control4 installer to ensure that the correct devices are attached to your Control4 system to watch movies or TV from satellite or cable. You can set up the stations that you'll see in the Navigators using the Composer Pro or Composer ME Media view.
