Got this project and started with some guide, you guys think im heading in the right direction? also how would I bring up the 10 channels when the guide function is called?

The program always display the current mode of the Tivo: A. viewing live channel B. channel recording C. playing recordings D. manage recordings E. Showing TV guide and F. off. Specific information appriopriate in each mode must be displayed, along with current volume. The information can be displayed in simple text or in a GUI.
The Tivo is set to off mode when the program starts. For simulation purpose, a list of ten channels shall be initialized when the program starts. For each channel, you shall also create a current program and a scheduled program immediately after it. You can create fake program names for the simulation.
Call function power() to turn the Tivo on/off. Call function guide() to switch to TV guide mode(E).
When the Tivo is on, the TV guide shall be displayed. UP/DOWN keys shall control the current selected program and channel. LEFT/RIGHT keys shall control which program is selected. The selected channel and programs are displayed when keys are pressed. A return key shall cause Tivo to either go to the mode of recording the program or the mode of showing live channels.
In viewing live channel mode, call function record() to record the current program. Call function stop() to return to TV guide mode.
In recording mode, Tivo stays at TV guide. But it will accept a stop() function to stop the recording. If not stopped, Tivo shall simulate the end of recording in 5 min. A function call recordings() causes Tivo to switch to display of recorded programs in manage recording mode (D).
In mode D, Tivo accepts a function play() to play the current selected recording. Delete() cause Tivo to delete the current selected recording. UP/DOWN keys control the current selected recording, if there’s multiple recordings created.

Write the program. Supply necessary data to test all functionalities. Submit the source code, testing data, and outputs as screen shots.
