Personalized TV settings

The new HD Guide offers detailed customization for up to eight different TV viewers in your home. Create profiles that cater to specific needs, wants, tastes and controls.



Flexible Parental Controls
Each profile can have a customized set of restrictions and permissions, including channel list, ratings locks, on-demand purchase limit, and auto-logout.  If you have an HDPVR 630, you can also control PVR access including restricting the ability to delete recordings or create new series requests.  Perfect for households with children of varying ages.


Single User Mode

The HD Guide can also be operated in Single User mode, where a single PIN will unlock content.  You'll still have access to most of the restrictions and settings listed above, but they will apply uniformly regardless of who is watching TV.  Searching that's easy and intuitive


Search by category

Use the all-new Category Search to find current and upcoming programs in popular categories, like sports, movies, news, or kids programming on channels you are subscribed to.



Search by keyword

Use the on-screen keyboard to enter a search term such as program or episode title, actor, or description to see all matching results.



Search for music

Finding the perfect music to listen to has never been easier. The enhanced Music Search lets you tune-in to 40 Galaxy genres, and 57 radio stations from around North America, while remaining in the search screen to keep browsing.


Smart recording from a Smart PVR
The new HD Guide is equipped with smart new PVR features for your HDPVR receiver, that help you manage, track and view your recordings with ease.



Smart Recording Status

Your new Smart PVR now clearly displays the status of your recordings in text form. No more deciphering the meaning of various recording icons. Now, programs with a recording icon will also have a detailed description of the scheduled recording, or give reasons why a recording has been rescheduled.




Smart Series Recording

It's now easier to modify your series recordings with a new shortcut built into the Program Options menu.  Plus, you can now modify which channel a recording takes place on by using the "More Channels" selection in the Edit Recording Event menu.



Smart PVR Notifications

The new Notification Bar will appear to alert you of upcoming auto-tunes or dual recording events.  More options are available to manage your viewing and ensure you're always able to keep watching what you want.



Previewing made easy, with MiniTune and MiniPlay
MiniTune and MiniPlay are two new features that will completely change the way you browse and watch television. Start watching recordings while still managing your PVR list, and tune to a show you see in the guide, without leaving the guide at all.

MiniTune

From the Guide and Category Search menu, pressing B will tune to the highlighted channel while keeping your current position in the menu. It's perfect for finding the right game or changing channels while planning out your recordings for the week.

MiniPlay

If you have an HDPVR, MiniPlay allows you to start playback of a recorded show while keeping your current position in the PVR List.  It's perfect for finding the right episode to watch, or starting playback while still managing your list.
