Default New Webshortcuts / TV Guide Hint

Please Login to Remove!

Just a helpful hint on setting up an icon to launch TV Guide with your local listings using the new WebShortcuts program (released 01/2008).

Using your desktop browser, login to Main Menu

Select "TV Listings". It will ask for your zip and your carrier.

Once you have selected both of these, and you can see your listings, copy the entire link, and paste it into the "config.xml" file for webshortcuts.

Now when you select the TVGuide icon, it will immediately launch you straight into the current listings. If you travel a lot, you can set up a second, or 3rd shortcut in the same way.

I'm also attaching an icon.

Since I find I use it every evening I thought I'd pass it on.
