Can I turn Genie Recommends on and off?


Yes. The Genie Recommends feature of the Genie® HD DVR can be easily turned on or off:

  • Press MENU on your remote and use your down arrow key to highlight Search & Browse.
  • Select TV Shows
  • Use your down arrow key to highlight Genie Settings.
  • Here, you’ll have the option to turn Genie Recommends on or off.

When your Genie system was installed, the installer will probably have turned Genie Recommends on for your convenience. If you’d prefer not to use this feature, just follow the simple steps above to turn it off.
