Favorites.  From http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-11.html#ss11.1

in LiveTV (or a recording?)
?  mark/unmark the current channel as a "favorite"

in EPG:
/  mark/unmark the current channel as a "favorite"
4  toggle the guide listing between all channels and filtered "favorites"

Hmmm.  I wonder why the different key for mark/unmark...

Well, about the best I can do is recommend the move left/right by one 
page/one day and hit the appropriate keys for most effective navigation...

Home/End  move the highlight left or right by one day
Ctrl+Left or <  move the highlight left by one page
Ctrl+Right or >  move the highlight right by one page
