How do you use the Favorites channel list for cable?

Question

So I set up favorites for cable.  How do I USE them with the magic remote?  When I'm watching cable, and I click on the scroll wheel, there aren't any choices to "goto favorites" or anything like that.  How do I invoke the favorites that I created?

With my TV, I press List button on the remote, then click on Filters, and finally I choose a Favorite group. All in all, far from user friendly.
I exported the list of channels to USB flash, arranged them in ChanSort, and imported to TV.

Ok, the "list" button now shows just my favorites.  I'm not quite sure why.  I'm pretty sure it showed ALL of the channels before, but I just went to the rename of the favorite group dialog and I think that may have flipped some flag in the code.  Now it just shows my favorite TV changes and I can navigate through them.  So that is only a couple of clicks to go to the next favorite.  

Two other buttons would have been nice on the magic remote.  One to record what I'm watching.  The other would have been a "goto next favorite" channel.

Nemilose:  I don't see a way to export the favorites, but there is a "flip order" button that would allow you to rearrange things probably easier than an export, rearrange, import operation.

Custom channel sorting is a challenge. Favourites is your best bet where you basically end up with types of sort. By channel number or name, or the order in which you add the channels.

You can then adjust the order of those channels by using the swap channel position order. This is basically useless as you have to choose 2 channels to swap position which in reality is no good. Say you add a new channel, it will go to bottom of favourites. now you want to move this to say the 3rd position. Using swap the channel currently in 3rd postion would end up in the last position which means your previously sorted channel list is messed up.

I have a live LG support question open which apparently is now with development team. My idea is when you add a channel from All to Favourites instead of adding to the last position instead it would place it above the currently selected favourite channel. Fingers crossed this gets implemented.

I ended up tossing the magic remote, plugging all devices into the AVR and HDMI from there to TV.  Then bought Logitech Elite remote with hub.  Now I have favorite buttons on the remote for all the favorite channels.  Then I also made a button on the remote learn the "fav" of the cable box remote which runs through the list of favorites on the cable box.

      I just got this OLED65b7a TV yesterday.  I have everything set up.
      My setup is shown in the attachment
      I have a couple of problems I can't resolve.
      1. Sound comes from two sources simultaneously.
         I turn on the xbox which turns on the receiver and the cable box and outputs signal back to receiver to the TV (hdmi ARC).
         I turn on the TV and see and hear the TV through the xbox.  (or I choose a game or something else on the xbox and see and hear that on the TV)
         I choose on the TV to show Live TV from the internet.
         Now both sounds come out from both sources.  I think the sound system is doing one and the TV speakers are doing the Live TV.
       
      2. I want to control the cable box with the remote. 
          When I want to configure the remote for the cable box, it wants the cable box to be plugged into the TV.  If I do that, the remote can control the cable box, but when I return the hdmi to the receiver, I don't think the remote still worked.  I think it said there was nothing connected or something.
       
      3. Should I be changing my connections?
          Should I be plugging the cable box and the xbox into the TV?  And then go from the TV to the receiver?  How will the remote work then?  Will I be able to turn the xbox on and off with the TV remote?  Will I have to disable the devices that the xbox is turning on and off through the Kinect IR blaster?
       
      Thanks a lot for any direction in this.  So far I haven't found anything on the web that is set up like mine to model after.
