Allow manual assignment of TV channel numbers to TV channels
Not everyone who uses Xbox One with their IPTV box has their tv provider supported right now.
For example, I'm with a local company in Indiana called Metronet, instead of Comcast or DirecTV.
It's been 10 months since launch and Metronet is still not supported on the One Guide.
So for me and others like me, allow us to manual assign channel numbers to tv channels so we can enjoy the guide and kinect like everyone else.

This is very important to support a great number of external boxes. It would be maybe useful to upload specific user-configurations. For example Technisat set-top-boxes are using the ISIPRO channel list for satellite.
The ability to set up a custom satellite box if you cannot find it on the list.
Like on some smart remotes you can "teach" it your remote commands if your system is not in the list.
This is something I reported before. A huge problem for me. Oneguide is useless because of this. For an example, I can't watch Discovery any more. When i choose it, the Xbox then jumps from that channel to the wrong number. That's so f...g sad you can't manually correct this by your own.
Please do more update on channel with oneguide
My provider (videotron) had channel 623/624 and on one guide I had only 623. Recently they move channel 634 to 656 and still wait for the update
thank you to do all change faster as possible
I would expect this to be a relatively simple enhancement to the OneGuide.
For example: I want to watch channel 36, but in order to get there I need the Xbox to send out
"68-36" to tune to that channel. My cable provider has identified channel 36 as 68-36 (QAM channel). The One Guide has the correct program information, but does not know my special requirement of having to type in those extra numbers to get there.

We need this now!
This is very important, also here in europe, especially Germany. A lot of people here use freely available satellite or terrestrical recievers / set-top-boxes for watching television. These don't follow any channel number restrictions like cable boxes do. You can arrange channel numbers by yourself. Rather than messing around with the settings in my reciever/set-top-box, which won't work properly if there are gaps between channel numbers, let me add, move and remove channels in One Guide.
I love this idea, for me some Pay TV channels don't show up in the Xbox Channel List, I'd love to add them manually.
