Start TV automatically using the HDMI channel

Start TV automatically using the HDMI channel

0% helpful (0/1)

Depending on your TV, you may have come across the following problem: you have to reselect the correct HDMI channel to watch Swisscom TV each time you switch your TV on. The TV does not automatically store the most recently chosen channel. Find out how to prevent this. 


If you mainly use your TV to watch Swisscom TV, it can be annoying to have to select the correct HDMI channel every time you switch it on. More recent TVs save the HDMI channel used most recently. If your TV set does not do this (e.g. Panasonic TVs or older Samsung devices), we recommend that you operate your TV in “hotel mode”. 

  1. Press and hold the channel button on the TV.
  2. At the same time, press the AV button on the remote control three times.
  3. From the menu that appears, select the HDMI channel that you want to start automatically when the TV is switched on.
