Viewing a shows extended information - Episode Title, Description (Synopsis), Parental Rating, Country of Origin, Language and Repeat status - is easy once you know how.
The lack of an Info button on the HDR-3000T 2tune remote control can be confusing at first. But Humax have included a clever way to view the information about the selected programme, upcoming episodes and shows and your recordings of the selected show.
Viewing a show's information while in the guide:
- While in the guide click OK to popup a window with information about the selected programme.
- You can then press the left arrow then scroll down to future episodes, or up to recorded episodes, and press OK to see information about the selected episode.
Viewing a show's information while watching live TV:
- While viewing live TV click OK twice to popup a window with information about the programme being viewed.
- From this popup window you can scroll up/down to other channels or scroll right to upcoming programmes then click OK to see information about the selected programme.
If you would like to also see easily if a show is a Repeat without having to view its extended information see the information about IceTV's custom repeat flag setting and add something short to the end of the title like [R] or [Rpt] which would appear as: The Big Bang Theory [Rpt]
But be aware that if you record both new and repeat episodes of a series that has a custom repeat flag set for its title the Humax HDR-3000T 2tune will group repeats in a different folder to the new episodes.
