DVR Tips and Tricks

Use the links below to learn how to optimize your cDVR experience.

Bookmarks

Mark specific spots in a recording to refer to later. Push Play on the remote to display the status bar, press the Blue button on the remote to add a Bookmark.  Later, you can press the Up/Down arrows to advance to your bookmarked spots.  Remove them by pressing the Blue button again within three seconds of selecting the mark.

Extended Recording

When recording a live event, there is a chance it may run longer than originally scheduled in the program guide.  You have the option to extend your recording up to one hour longer in order to be sure you record the entire event.  All you need to do is adjust the Stop Recording time in the recording options screen.  

Slow Motion Playback

Press the Pause button at the point in the program that you would like to watch in slow motion.  Then use the Fast Forward function to play in slow motion.  Press FFWD once to play at ¼ speed, or twice to play at ½ speed.  

Folders

Folders allow you to organize the recordings on your DVR by user, program type, or any other way you may choose.  You can create or move a recording to an existing folder at any time. ½ speed.  

Skip Fwd/Back

Press the Skip Back or Skip Forward buttons to move quickly back or ahead at a designated period of time.  Each push of the button is defaulted in the menu to skip at 30 second intervals. Personalize your experience in the Recording Settings section of your menu.  

What's Recording

Your Cloud DVR service allows you to record up to five programs at a time. Because all of hte recording is done in the cloud, there is no indicator light on your STB when it is recording.  You can easily tell what your DVR is doing by simply pressing the OK button.  You can quickly find out what program or programs are recording. You can also jump to a recording from that menu by highlighting and pressing the OK button.  

Binge Mode Playback

When you are watching programming from a Series Recording and have multiple recordings stored, this mode will prompt you to watch the next recording in a series once you are done with the initial one. Just make sure you adjust the “Keep at Most” number to ensure you successfully record all of the episodes in the series.  

Recording Actions

Press the LIST button one time to access the list of Recording Folders. Use the colored action keys to navigate through all of your storage and playback options.

  • A Red Circle indicates a current recording.
  • A Yellow Check means the recording is new and has not yet been viewed by a user.
  • A Play Symbol shows the recordings that have been viewed by a user.
