TV Guide with Button

The TV Guide


Pressing OK on the TV Guide button from the Home page takes you to the electronic program Guide which can also be accessed from the Guide button on the remote control. The Guide displays five channels in total in a grid fashion running in half hour segments from left to right . Above the Guide is a small screen with the currently tuned channel showing in a small window on the left, and alongside the window on the right is a brief summary about the currently highlighted program. Along the top is the current day, date and time. . 


Your currently scheduled recordings are shown in the Guide as blue and if they are part of a series they also have two green ticks set against the title. If set as a single recording only one green tick will be present.  Channels not currently selected are coloured grey in the numbered channel list, whilst the channel you are currently in is displayed as black. The program that you have navigated to is highlighted by a yellow surround  in the Guide.  A short summary or synopsis of the highlighted program is shown above the Guide as you move through it.

To move through the Guide program by program or channel by channel use the direction keys on the remote control. If you wish to move more quickly through the channels you can use the P+ or P- keys on the remote control to skip up or down five channels at a time. (Page.) To move quickly through a particular channel in six hour jumps, use the FF or RW keys on the remote control.

If you are scanning the Guide in order to decide which current program to view, then remain in the current time slot and move up or down the channels in the Guide using the direction buttons. The short summary for each highlighted program shown above the Guide will help you to decide whether to watch a program or record it.  When you see something you would like to watch press OK on the channel in question and then select Watch this Channel from the drop down list.



If  you are accessing the Guide in order to set up any recording timers, then navigate to your chosen program, press OK on the remote control whilst the program is highlighted followed by pressing OK on Record Episode or Record Series. After the unit has checked for any conflicts if you are setting up a series recording, select Accept – Record this Series in order to set up the Series recording schedule.  If you change your mind about recording that particular program scroll down to Cancel – Do Not Record to exit the recording set up list.
