I had that problem too.  It's because you haven't defined any channels.

If you're in the US, you have to tell it your schedulesdirect username
and password and then scan for the channels.  It took me several tries
to find where you can scan for the channels, but it is there and after
you do that, you will be able to watch tv.

The opposite of "funny" isn't "serious"; the opposite of both "funny"
and "serious" is "sordid".
