DVR My Recordings

With a DVR, you can control live TV. When you tune to a channel, the DVR automatically
starts a temporary recording of the program so you can pause, resume, and replay live TV.
 
With the arrow buttons, you can pause, resume, and replay live TV without having to set up a
recording. You can also use the arrow buttons with recorded shows.
 
PAUSE
Pause live TV by pressing the up-arrow button on your remote control.
 
PLAY
Press the up-arrow button again to resume program playback.
 
REWIND / SLOW-REWIND FROM PAUSE
Press the left-arrow button to rewind — or to slow-motion rewind from a pause.
 
FAST-FORWARD / SLOW-FORWARD FROM PAUSE
Press the right-arrow button to fast forward — or to slow-motion forward from a pause.
 
Live TV recording is not permanent, unless you save it to the DVR hard disk drive. A live recording is erased
when you do any of the following:
• Turn off the DVR.
• Change channels.
• Watch more than 90 minutes of the same channel. The DVR buffers only the most recent 90 minutes.
 
STATUS BAR
The Status Bar appears when you pause, rewind, or fast-forward a program. The Status Bar shows the
duration of programs in the buffer and information about the program that is playing. The bar is blue for a
live program playing, red for a DVR recording playing, and white for other programs in the buffer.
 
 
SWAPPING BETWEEN TWO PROGRAMS
 
If your set-top box DVR features two tuners, you can buffer (temporarily record) two programs at the same
time — one on each tuner — by using the SWAP button. If you change channels without using SWAP, you lose the
buffered recording.
 
Follow these steps:
 

  • While tuned to a program, press SWAP on your remote to change tuners.
  • Select a second program by changing channels or using the guide.
  • Press SWAP again to toggle between the two programs.
  • When recording two programs at the same time, on-screen prompts will
    ask if you wish to swap tuners. Select your desired recording preference.
  •  
    With the playback controls, you can pause, rewind, and fast-forward through recordings like
    a VCR. You can also use the playback controls with live shows.
     
    PAUSE
    Pause a recording or live TV by pressing the pause key (||). Pressing pause more than once allows
    frame-by-frame viewing. When you’re watching live TV, the screen remains paused and recording
    continues for up to approximately 90 minutes, depending on the video format.
     
    REWIND
    Press the rewind key (<<) to rewind. Press it up to four times to increase the rewind speed. On the
    fifth press, the program resumes normal play.
     
    FAST-FORWARD
    Press the fast-forward key (>>) to fast-forward a recording. For live TV, you can fast-forward after
    you press pause (||) or rewind (<<).
     
    SLOW-MOTION
    To move in slow-motion forward or back, press pause (||) and then either fast-forward (>>) or
    rewind.
     
    PLAY
    Press the play key (►) to resume playback after a pause, rewind, or fast-forward.
    instant replay
    To rewind 15 seconds and replay, press the replay key (REW). If your remote doesn’t have a replay
    button, use the Page▼ key instead.
     
    RETURN TO LIVE TV
    After pausing or rewinding a live program, press the LIVE key to return to the live program. If your
    remote doesn’t have a LIVE key, use the Page▼ key instead.
     
    ONE-TOUCH RECORD
     
    You can record or schedule a recording just by hitting the “REC”button on your remote. Press “REC” to:
    • Save the recording of the program you’re watching.
    • Schedule the recording of a program selected in the
     
    Guide or Mini Guide.
    • Schedule the recording of a program selected in Search results.
    Follow any on-screen prompts for recording settings.
     
    RECORD FROM THE PROGRAM INFO SCREEN
     
    Use the “RECORD”icon to record a program or schedule a recording, and to cancel or modify a scheduled recording.
     
    Select the “RECORD” icon and follow the on-screen prompts for additional options, as shown in the next panel.
     
    The program information screen comes up when you hit the Info button or when you select a future program in the
    Guide or Mini Guide.
     
    RECORD TWO PROGRAMS AT SAME TIME
     
    With a dual tuner you can record two programs at the
    same time. Watch either program using the SWAP button
    (or Page▼ if your remote does not have SWAP).
    To record while watching a show:
    1. Press “REC” to record the show on now.
    2. Press SWAP (or Page▼) to switch tuners.
    3. Locate the second program and press “REC”.
