are set already by the epg,your options are repeat

1x,day,1 week,1-5,5-7,select one you like,press

"ok" on remote,now event timer is set,and is

highlighted in the epg,now you simply go to any

channel and watch tv,when your event starts the stb

will automatically change to the channel you set

event for,this is great for finding a movie or

any event you know is coming on latter that you

don't want to forget about and miss wile your

watching something else as a time filler.
to delete event timer on the fly in epg,scroll to

selected highlighted event in the epg,press "ok" on
