I have tried Didguide which is good but, I then need to remember all the stuff when I go into the front room and program it into the toppy. Also there is no real critics for this guide.

So what I am after is a well laid out magazine/paper guide with all the information to plan my weeks recording. Any recomendations? What routine do others have to do this?

To be honest, I use the TV guide that comes free in the Daily Mirror each Saturday Very Happy

The programme desriptions are quite adequate for my needs and, together with the information in the Toppy EPG, I'm able to program my recordings without any hassle.

Cheers,

The Radio Times website http://www.radiotimes.com/ gives programmes TWO weeks ahead and you can search it by programme name. It cover all channels, not just BBC. If you register (free) you can store your preferences. The programme information is comparable (identical?) to the extended info shown during transmission.

And look at http://www.bleb.org/tv/ - only one week ahead but you can get the entire 24 hours on one web page. Also offers xml so you can d/l and tweak it in (say) excel.

Hope this helps.

I used to buy TV & Satellite Week although now I prefer TV Easy magazine. Very compact and channels are laid out well.

However, it only lists 18 of the Freeview & TopUp channels.

Cheers
