Guide+ is a system that allows your recorder to download the TV programme for the next week or fortnight, and then allow you to navigate around in a grid on the screen where you see the various programme's names. You can then press a single button to have the timer programmed with the start and stop time of the programme, as well as transferring the title of the programme.

If the recorder has this capability, this feature is checked.

Note: Guide+ does not currently work in Scandinavia, but GemStar (which is the company that delivers the Guide+ data) has just started investigating the market.
