    That puts up little tips in the guide to give you instructions on how to record. If you turn them on you will see what I mean.

    Genie Recommends is the feature that records shows it thinks you might like. If you have a Genie DVR, press {MENU} to see what Genie Recommends has recorded for you. If you have not enabled it, you will see a graphic at the bottom telling you how to enable it.

    The Guide is... the guide. It's what you get when you press {GUIDE} on your remote.

    All I can say is that if you turn Recording Tips on and go to the guide, in certain cases you will see messages that tell you how to record something.

    Mr. Sport: You've been advised in six different threads you've started, that at some point (now) you have to try things out and see for yourself.
    Good luck!

    Try this:
    On your remote, press the "guide" button,
    go to any program in the guide, with that program highlighted press the orange "record" button on the remote.
    Now you should see instructions / tips on how you can do more than just record that episode of the program.
    With the "Tips" turned off you should not see those instructions / tips.

    I do not have a Genie so I know nothing about Genie Recommends.

    Genie Recommends is completely different from Search and Browse. Genie Recommends actually records things it thinks you will like.
