    1. Click on the Genre map tab.
    2. To add a new guide genre to the TV guide click the Add button and enter the name for the genre in the popup dialog.  The new TV guide genre name appears in the Guide Genre column of the genre color map.
    3. For each TV guide genre two colors should be assigned; On Now Color and On Later Color.  The On Now Color is used to color the TV guide program entry when the program is currently on.  The On Later Color is used to color the TV guide program entry when the program is scheduled in the future.  As an example; the On Later Color may simply be a muted or dimmed On Now Color - doing this may make the guide easier to read.  To set the On Now Color for a TV guide genre, click on the genre name in the Guide Genre column to highlight it.  With the genre name highlighted click the On Now Color button to access the color picker.  Choose a color using the color picker and click the OK button.  The selected color will be shown in the On Now Color column in the same row as the selected genre name.  Perform similar actions to set the On Later Color for the selected genre.
    4. In order for the chosen "on now" and "on later" genre colors to be used to color TV guide programs you must map at least one of the Unmapped Genres to the Guide Genre.  When a genre name in the Guide Genre column is highlighted and the Mapped Genres list is empty then the highlighted genre name's colors will not be used to color any programs in the TV guide.  To map a program genre to a genre name highlight the desired genre name in the Guide Genre column, then highlight a program genre name in the Unmapped Genres column and click the << button.  Do this multiple times to map more than one program genre name to the highlighted genre name.  This allows for multiple program genres to be mapped to a single Guide Genre.  To unmap a program genre highlight the program genre to unmap in the Mapped Genres column and click the >> button.
    5. The Automatically add programs with a movie rating to the "Movie" genre checkbox provides a method to bypass genre mapping for colorizing movies easily.  With the checkbox checked there must exist a Guide Genre named "Movie" and which has no Mapped Genres.  The colors assigned to the "Movie" guide genre will be applied to every program that has a movie rating; e.g., in the United States, if the program has an MPAA rating then it will be colored according to the "Movie" colors even though there are not Mapped Genres.
