What is the G-link for and how do I use it?


The G-link cable that comes with your recorder enables it to control some functions of external receivers by means of infrared (IR) signals. 

The G-link connection is only used in combination with the Guide+ system. 

Connect the G-link as follows:

  • Place the G-link in front of the infrared sensor of the external receiver at a short distance. Refer to the manual of the receiver for the location of the infrared sensor. 
  • Connect other end of the G-link cable to the G-link connection at the back of the recorder.

~ A list of  external receivers that support the G-link  is avaiilable on the website of Gemstar, Gemstar is the provider of the guide+ system.
~ Do not install the G-link if you do not connect an external receiver.
