Record and Series Link Use the EPG to find the show you want to add to series link. Highlight the show and press the record button on your r emote (The Red DOT near the other p layback keys) Select 'Record Once' - Will record the program the once or Select ‘Series Link’ The next screen will show you the parameters that will match a show and generate a timer in order for the show to record. For shows that are on roughly the same time on the same day each week, these default settings sett ings are probably going to be OK for you For daily soaps you will need to change some options: o Deselect the option option that says ‘Only on Weekday’ as leaving this selecting will only record a show on t hat particular day of the week o If the soap or show you want to record sometimes comes on at odd times of the day, deselect the ‘Match Timespan’ option
As an example, for Coronation Street, which is on regularly during weekdays once or twice a day, deselecting ‘Only on Weekday’ will generally be sufficient as the time span usually covers and hour before the start and an hour after t he end of the show you selected which usually covers days when the show is on twice such as at 7:30 and 8:30 – 8:30 – But But if in doubt, deselect the ‘Match Timespan’ option.
Press Green to confirm these parameter The next page will confirm the ext ended settings and parameters – parameters – It’s important to know that know that at this point, the series link is not set. You shouldn’t need to change any setting here, so press Green to confirm the Series Link Press Exit to return to the TV After a brief pause you may see a mes sage box confirming timers have been added Wait 30 seconds and then press Timer on your remote. You should see your Series Link in the list. Fo r shows on once a week, you’ll usually just see one show. For soaps etc, you should expect to see a few entries. 7 of 11

EPG (Program Guide) Problems On occasions you may find that the EPG shows the same programme info for some or all channels. This is usually a result of a corrupt epg.dat file that may have been c aused by power outage or general issue writing to your USB drive. The fix described here should result in the epg.dat being delete d (which will initially leave you with a blank EPG) and fresh EPG data being downloaded. If you find this keeps happening, it’s most likely a problem with your USB d rive and I’d recommend replacing that Red Button > 2 (Fixes Menu) > 4 (Remove all EPG Data) > After a brief wait, your box will appear to restart NOTE – NOTE – At At this point your EPG will be empty – empty – The The next steps depend on whether you are running Sky or Virgin – Virgin – If If you run both, run both steps Sky Green Button > CrossEPG Downloader > When CrossEPG has finished downloading a reboot is advised
