You can decide to set a recording at any time when navigating through the user interface. You can do this when on a live channel and select ‘OK’, or you use the ‘Mini TV guide’ by going up or down and select a channel, you will see a ‘Record’ button if your USB memory stick has been 'initialised'. You can select to record the current episode or if the program is part of a series, you can decide to select a ‘series record’.
Alternatively, you can also use the TV guide in order to schedule a program to record in the future, and select to record one episode or the whole ‘series’.
Important note: For scheduled recordings and series recordings - please be mindful that you cannot record while watching live TV channels from Freeview and secondly it occupies the space on your USB Memory stick.
