I like boring, but many of you may not. So, did you know you can dress up the default Media Center EPG interface by color-coding your channels by the category they fall under? No? Good! No messy registry editing or other scary hacks for this one…the Media Center EPG supports this natively!
- Launch Media Center.
- Go to the Tasks start menu strip.
- Select Settings.
- Select TV.
- Select Guide.
- Select Guide Page Options.
- Place a check mark in Apply colored backgrounds to shows, based on their category.
- Click on Save and navigate to the Media Center EPG.
