    I have just ordered a Pioneer 530 and had some questions about Guide plus+.

    Does it have any concept of recording all episodes in a series?
    If not, does it at least have the ability to choose a program to record and then set up a repeat recording every week at that time - or can you only do that with a manual recording?

    If you have to set a manual record for repeat recordings does it still pick title/information off of Guide +?

    Finally, does anyone have any experience of using Guide plus+ with NTL? (My brother wants to get a 530 too and he has NTL. From the Guide plus web site it looks like he will also have to get a RedEye converter for an extra £35.)

    There's no series link - but can record daily/weekly

    I use it with NTL no problems - he will only need red-eye convertor if he has a pace box (it's particular to that box not the system) - i have samsung digibox

    NTl is now split into regions which he will be able to set after the first download

    I do not think the unit have series link as such, but you can tell it to record daily, weekly or just the once.

    As stated in the manual, GuidePlus allows to set one-time, daily or weekly recording options.
