In this pic of my guide for the 10 pm program, what is the little round white figure with a black right arrow in it?

If I'm not mistaken the 10PM program circle with the arrow means that show is available On Demand. The 11PM show's arrow means it's going to be skipped.
Thanks. Is there a listing someplace that list all the guide symbols?

The white symbol means that it is part of a series recording but that episode is already recorded or set to record so it’s skipping the repeat

I am not sure of that HipKat. It is a brand new program and the 10 pm show is the first time slot.

Any show that has the round circle with the little arrow also has the option to 'Watch on Demand' in the drop down menu when you press the Select button. Shows without the arrow don't have that option.

Yep, that did it. While in the guide on that show I hit the Select button and there is one of the options in the drop down menu Watch On Demand. Thanks JSheridan.

Are you sure?
I see that icon on programs whose recording is being skipped on our local PBS station and the drop down does not have the option to view On Demand.

Isn't that a local channel? I don't think that would be an On Demand channel. Does the little white circle have a curved directional line? That would be a skipped channel.

Yes it's a local PBS channel. And yes the little white circle have a curved directional line. I thought that was the same icon in your original post. Was your icon have a curved directional line?

Never mind. I was looking at the wrong program --duh.

I see both in my guide. The little white circle with a black right arrow means that program is in the ON Demand section. The white circle with black curved directional arrow means it is a timer that is skipped for some reason. It could mean that the timer is already scheduled or has already been recorded at some time. Some of my programs in the guide have both circles in it. Sorry for all the confusion.
