The Verizon FiOS Difference:
Understanding your new fiber-optic connection
Now that you’re hooked up, here’s how it works. While traditional
telephone and cable TV networks use mostly copper wire and
coaxial cable to deliver services, Verizon FiOS is 100% fiber-optic,
bringing you state-of-the-art voice, TV and high-speed Internet
service. With Verizon FiOS, your home is now ahead of its time.
Verizon FiOS uses hair-thin strands of glass to carry information in the
form of laser-generated pulses of light. When those pulses of light
reach your home through our network, they are converted into
electrical signals in a box installed outside your home called the
Optical Network Terminal (ONT). Once the signals have been
converted, your home’s existing telephone wiring and coaxial cable
carry voice and TV signals to your phones and TV sets. Either CAT5
or a combination of CAT5 and coaxial cable is used to carry
Verizon FiOS Internet signals. Similarly, when information is sent from
your home, those electrical signals are changed into light pulses in
the ONT so they can travel to their destinations.
Unlike traditional self-powered telephone or cable television service,
your Verizon FiOS service depends on your home’s power source.

Please note: The ONT has a power cord that goes into your home through the
ONT Power Supply Unit, where it plugs into an existing standard electrical outlet.

ONT Power Supply Unit (OPSU):
Finding your electricity source
Your ONT requires electricity to operate all
Verizon services provided on the FiOS network.
The OPSU supplies power by connecting your
ONT directly to an electrical outlet in your
home or garage.
The OPSU contains a single indicator light that
tells you if electrical power is present. If the
indicator light is dark, electricity is not flowing from the outlet to
the ONT. In normal operation, the light should be green.
The ONT requires very little power to operate. In fact, the amount
of power needed is as little as what it would take to operate a
couple of night-lights.

To ensure connectivity to the Verizon FiOS network, please make sure your ONT
Power Supply Unit is plugged in at all times.

Battery Backup Unit (BBU):
Continuous power when you need it
In case your ONT Power Supply Unit is accidentally
unplugged — or in the event of a commercial power
failure — a backup battery has been installed to
provide you with power for voice service for
approximately four hours. Your BBU was installed
in a location in your home or garage where it
can be easily monitored — most likely near the
OPSU. The BBU is connected directly to the
ONT to provide backup power if it’s needed. In
addition, the BBU contains a series of indicator
lights that tell you whether your service is being
powered by your home’s electricity or the battery.
The BBU also tells you when the battery needs replacing. The average
life of your battery is between one and four years, depending on the
average temperature of the environment. When your battery does
need replacing, you can purchase a sealed lead-acid battery at major
electronics outlets and home improvement stores.
BBU Indicator Lights:
The meaning behind the signals
Your BBU has four distinct lights to signify certain conditions, as
described below. Please take a moment to review them.
System:
Green — Operating normally.
Blinking Green — Battery is going through a self-test.
Yellow — ONT is operating from the battery and the battery is
discharging.
Blinking Red — Battery is fully discharged and needs to be replaced.
Please note: Battery disposal standards and requirements vary by state. If you
need to replace the sealed lead-acid battery in your Battery Backup Unit, please
check the following Environmental Protection Agency resources for proper
disposal instructions: visit www.epa.gov/epr/products/batteries.html or call the
EPA directly at 1-800-424-9346.
8
Battery:
Green — ONT is operating normally. BBU
is on standby.
Yellow — Battery is either recharging or
conducting a self-test, or the BBU is
providing power to the ONT.
Red — Battery is low. When this light comes
on, approximately two hours of talk time
remain.
Replace Battery:
Red — Battery needs to be replaced.
Auxiliary (currently not available):
Green — Auxiliary Battery Pack (ABP) is connected to the BBU.
Off — No ABP is connected.
BBU Audible Alarms:
Listening to help you troubleshoot
Your BBU is also equipped with an audible alarm to inform you of
problems with your BBU. The alarm sounds for two seconds and then
is silent for 58 seconds. The conditions listed below are the potential
reasons for the audible alarm. You can use the alarm in combination
with the indicator lights to resolve your BBU issue.
Low Battery — Alarm is silenced if the battery voltage goes above 12V
(electrical power has returned), the battery is fully discharged or the
battery is removed from the BBU.
Foreign Voltage — Alarm is silenced once the foreign voltage has
been properly removed.
Replace Battery — Alarm is silenced when the battery is removed.
Overcurrent — Alarm is silenced once the overcurrent has been
properly removed.
9
Since you are responsible for the management of your battery, it is very
important that you familiarize yourself with these light signals and audible
alarms, to ensure that you have backup power if it’s needed.
Please note: In the event of a power outage, only your telephone service will
receive power. Your backup battery will not operate your FiOS TV service or
Internet service.
Troubleshooting Tips
If you experience problems with any of your FiOS services, the
following checklist could save you a call to the Verizon Fiber
Solutions Center. It will also help us get to the root of the problem
faster when you do call.
Power:
1. Check to see if you are experiencing a power outage.
2. If there is no power outage, check to see if your OPSU is plugged
into an electrical outlet and that the indicator light is illuminated.
3. If the indicator light is not illuminated and the outlet is a Ground Fault
Circuit Interrupter (GFCI), make sure it hasn’t been tripped. If it has,
press the reset button.
4. Check the fuse or circuit breaker to make sure your outlet is
working. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the fuse if necessary.
5. After taking these steps, recheck the indicator light on the OPSU to
see if it is illuminated. If it is, recheck for service.
Battery:
If you are experiencing a power outage, please review the following:
1. If the Battery indicator light is dark and the System indicator light is
yellow, check your battery connection inside the BBU.
10
2. If the battery is properly connected and the Replace Battery
indicator light is red, replace the battery in your BBU, as it is
fully discharged.
3. After taking these steps, recheck the BBU indicator lights. If the
battery lights are not in normal status, call the Verizon Fiber
Solutions Center for assistance at 1-888-553-1555.
Voice Service Test:
If you are still having problems with
your voice service, it could be your
inside wiring. To find out, take a
corded wire-line telephone and a
slotted-tip screwdriver to your
ONT. Then, open your ONT and
remove the wire from the phone
jack corresponding to the line in
question. Plug your telephone into
that phone jack and listen for a dial
tone. (If you have only one phone line,
plug your phone into jack #1.)
If you hear a dial tone, then the problem may be with your inside
wiring. Please contact the Verizon Fiber Solutions Center for
assistance. (Charges may apply for the repair of inside wiring.)
If you do not hear a dial tone while at the ONT, you will need to contact
the Fiber Solutions Center at 1-888-553-1555. Your technician may
ask you to describe the indicator lights inside your ONT in order to
diagnose the problem. See the illustration on the following page for an
explanation of some of the indicator lights.
Please note: If you do not have voice service with Verizon, you will not be able
to perform the Voice Service Test.

Using Your Remote Control
Your new remote can control up to four devices. To select the device you’d like
it to control, simply press one of the device keys (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR or
CABLE) at the top of your remote. Then follow programming instructions below.
Programming Device Control
Each of the additional device keys controls a particular type of device. For
example, the DVD/VCR key controls your VCR, DVR or DVD player, but not your
TV, unless you specify otherwise. ( See Reassigning Device Keys on page 20.)
To specify a device:
1. Look up the device you want to control in the device code list included in this
Guide (see pages 22–27).
2. Press and hold a device key (AUDIO, DVD/VCR or TV) for at least six
seconds. The LEDs for each device key light up momentarily and the LED
for the device you selected remains on.
3. Enter the four-digit code. The device key LED turns off briefly after each key press.
NOTE: You have 10 seconds to press each digit. If you take longer than that, the
remote “times out” and you must begin again.
4. If the remote recognizes the code, the device key’s LED blinks three times.
You can now test the remote by pressing POWER. If your device responds
(i.e., turns off), you have found the right code. If your device does not
respond, repeat steps 2 and 3 with the next code on the list.
If the remote does not recognize the code, the LED will turn off. Retry the code
(by repeating steps 2 and 3 using the next code listed for your brand) or search
for a new device code. (See Searching for Codes below.)

3. Press
. The remote will send the command for the function you pressed in step 2.
4. If the device performed the function you pressed, press OK. The remote will now
control the device you selected in step 1. If the device did not perform the function
you pressed, repeat step 3. Press
to retry the previous code.
Checking Codes
1. Press and hold a device key (AUDIO, DVD/VCR or TV) for at least six seconds. The LED
for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the device you selected
remains on.
2. Enter 9-9-0 to tell the remote you are verifying the device code. The LED blinks twice.
3. Press 1, then count the number of times the LED blinks and write down the
number. (If the LED does not blink, the number is 0.) This is the first digit of the
device code. Press 2, 3 and 4 to obtain all four digits of the device code.
Tip: Write down the code that worked, in case you must re-code your remote.
DVD/VCR
TV
AUDIO
Changing Volume Lock
Locking the volume controls to a single device makes it easier to control volume
without having to guess whether the volume will change. If you lock the remote’s
volume controls to the TV (for example), you will always be able to change the volume
to the level you want, without having to adjust it on multiple devices.
1. Press and hold the device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR or CABLE) for six seconds.
The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the selected
device remains on.
2. Press Volume + (up).
The device key’s LED blinks three times, indicating it has locked the volume control to
the device you selected. The AUDIO device key always controls its own volume,
regardless of which device is locked to volume control.
NOTE: If you reassign AUDIO to another device, such as a second TV, the second TV
will always control its own volume.
Unlocking Volume Control
1. Press and hold the device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR or CABLE) corresponding to
the device currently locked to the volume control for at least six seconds. The LED
for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the selected device
remains on.
2. Press Volume – (down).
The device key’s LED blinks three times, indicating it has unlocked the volume control
for all devices.
19
Reassigning Device Keys
Each device key accesses a specific type of device (for example, the DVD/VCR
key can only be programmed to control a DVD player, VCR, DVR or HTS). This
makes it easier to search for a code if your device’s code does not appear on
the list provided.
Your new remote allows you to change the type of device that may be assigned
to a device key. That way, if you have two TVs, for example, you can control
them both by changing the type of device the DVD/VCR or AUDIO key controls.
1. Press and hold the device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR) that corresponds to the
device you want the reassigned key to control (for example, TV) for six
seconds. The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key
for the selected device remains on.
2. Enter 9-9-2.
3. Press the device key you want to reassign (for example, AUDIO). That key’s
LED blinks three times and turns off, indicating that it has been reassigned.
The reassigned key automatically uses the same device code as the key you
selected in step 1. If your second device uses a different code, you may
program it for the new code. (See Programming Device Control.)
NOTE: You may not reassign the CABLE device key to another type of device.
Assigning a key back to its original device type:
1. Press and hold the device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR) you want to reset to its
original type (for example, AUDIO) for at least six seconds. The LED for each
device key lights up momentarily and the key for the device you selected
remains on.
2. Enter 9-9-2. The device key LED blinks three times and turns off.
3. Press the device key you selected in step 1 again. The LED blinks three times
and turns off.
4. Program the restored key to control a device. (See Programming
Device Control.)
Installing Batteries
Your remote requires two AAA batteries. The first set of batteries is included and
should last up to six months under normal usage.
1. Remove the battery case cover and the old batteries (if necessary).
2. Follow the diagram inside the battery case to insert the new batteries.
NOTE: You have 10 minutes to replace the batteries before the remote loses memory.
Operating Range
Your remote controls devices from up to 50 ft. (15 m) away if you are directly in
front of the device or from up to 20 ft. (6 m) away if you are off to either side.
20
Troubleshooting
If you have trouble with your remote, try the following steps, in order:
My remote is not responding.
1. Review the information in Using Your Remote Control to make sure that the
key you pressed is active for the device you are controlling.
2. Make sure you are controlling the device you think you are. (See Using Your
Remote Control for more information on choosing a device control.)
3. Make sure your batteries are good. If battery power is low, your remote enters
a Low Battery Condition to conserve battery power for retaining your settings.
(See Installing Batteries for more information on changing the batteries.)
4. Reset all settings:
• Press and hold a device key (TV, AUDIO, DVD/VCR) for at least six seconds.
The LED for each device key lights up momentarily and the key for the
device you selected remains on.
• Enter 9-8-1.
• The LED blinks twice to indicate that your remote has returned to its factory
settings. You will need to reset all device code settings. (See Programming
Device Control.)
Some features may require additional equipment at an additional cost. Your use of FiOS TV will

Help
If you have questions on using
Parental Controls, Video on Demand
or any of the many features of the
IPG, you can go to the Help Menu
for answers. You’ll find detailed
information and instructional videos
to help you get the most out of
FiOS TV.
High Definition
Television (HDTV)
Now you can enjoy the awesome
picture quality of HDTV via Verizon
FiOS TV (if you have an HD-ready
TV and either the High Definition or
DVR Set Top Box).
Easily search the TV Listings for shows being offered in HDTV. They are
identified by an HD symbol at the end of the program and can easily be
found using the HDTV category in the Search Menu.
Digital Video
Recorder (DVR)
With the DVR Set Top Box from
Verizon FiOS TV, you can record a
favorite show — or an entire series —
with just a couple of clicks on your
remote. You can also use your
remote to control live TV. That’s right:
pause, rewind, then fast forward through the show you’re watching.
35
DVR (continued)
The Verizon FiOS TV DVR has dual-tuner capability, so you can record
two programs at the same time or watch one program while recording
another.
Record an upcoming show by finding it in the TV Listings, highlighting
it, and then pressing the RECORD button on your remote control.
Recording takes place automatically.
Smart SERIES RECORDING lets you record every episode of your
favorite series automatically — even if they’re shown at different times
and on different days.
View shows you’ve recorded by pressing the LIST button on your
remote and selecting a show for viewing. Or select RECORDED TV
from the Main Menu.
Not sure if you have the FiOS TV DVR? You’ll know that you do if
RECORDED TV appears on the Main Menu. For a more complete
description of DVR features, please see pages 42–47.
Settings
The Settings Menu allows you to:
• Define your Favorite Channels,
which can be easily accessed
by pressing the FAV button on
the remote.
• Remove channels you don’t want
to see in your channel lineup.
• Choose a different language for the TV Listings text and for TV audio.
• Receive messages from Verizon FiOS TV.
36
• Set up Parental Controls with a personalized PIN.
• Review Pay Per View and Video on Demand purchases.
• Change audio output characteristics. (See Quick Tips, pages 38–39.)
Parental Controls
The FiOS TV IPG provides the
ability to control and manage the
programs and content that come
into your home.
With Parental Controls, it’s easy to:
• Selectively block programming
by channel, rating or category.
• Selectively block Pay Per View and
Video on Demand purchases.
• Set up two different user-defined
PINs (one for purchases and one
to block programs.)
• Hide adult programming from
the TV Listings.
When programs with a particular rating level are blocked, the IPG
automatically blocks the higher ratings.
Also, if you have the DVR STB, programs recorded with a PIN require
the PIN to be entered in order to play back the recorded program.
37
Quick Tips: How do I...
Access Video on Demand (VOD)?
Video on Demand is programming that is available for you to watch anytime
(and as many times as you like) within a set rental period. Simply select
ON DEMAND from the Main Menu (or choose Channel 900 from the TV
Listings) to see the VOD titles that are currently available. Select a program you
want to watch and simply follow the on-screen instructions.
Purchase Pay Per View programs?
Pay Per View allows you to see the latest hit events in just a couple of easy steps
with your remote. Pay Per View programs are offered at specific showtimes, so
if you want to see what’s playing, just select SEARCH from the Main Menu and
then select PAY PER VIEW.
Subscribers with DVR capability (see below) can automatically record a Pay Per
View offering for viewing at a later, more convenient time.
Use the Digital Video Recorder (DVR)?
If you have the DVR Set Top Box (STB) with your FiOS TV service, it’s a snap
to record a TV show or even an entire series — without tapes. The programs
are stored directly on your STB. You can rewind or pause live TV — making it
TV on your time.
With dual-tuner capability, you can even record two programs at the same time,
or watch one live TV program while recording another.
You’ll know that you have DVR capability if RECORDED TV appears on the
Main Menu. For a more complete description of DVR features, please check out
pages 42–47.
View a program in High Definition TV (HDTV)?
More and more people are entering the new era of High Definition Television —
and FiOS TV can be your gateway. If you have an HD-ready TV, and if you chose
either the High Definition or DVR Set Top Box, then you’re ready to enjoy the
incredible picture quality this new technology has to offer.
Shows being offered in HDTV are identified in the TV Listings by the HD symbol
at the end of the program description and can easily be found by selecting
HDTV from SEARCH BY CATEGORY.
You can also look at your channel lineup to see where you can find the specially
designated high definition channels.
Channel surf?
With the IPG, you can zip through channels quickly. Just press and hold the
CH button on the remote until you see the title of a show you want to watch,
then release.
38
Block out material that’s not suitable for children?
Many parents are concerned about the programming their children watch. Our
Parental Controls feature lets you do something about it. Select SETTINGS
from the Main Menu, and then select PARENTAL CONTROLS.
From there, you’ll be able to block access to shows either by channel or by
rating, and can choose to hide or show adult titles. You will be able to create a
Personal Identification Number (PIN) to ensure that the controls you set won’t
be changed without your approval. And, you can use the same PIN or create an
additional one to block unauthorized Pay Per View and VOD purchases.
Set a Reminder?
Find a show you want to watch in the future using the TV Listings, the Mini-Guide
or any of the Search functions. Select the show and press OK. Then select
SET REMINDER and press OK. The IPG will remind you with an on-screen
message two minutes before the show begins. To cancel the Reminder, select
CLEAR REMINDER and press OK.
Shows for which Reminders have been set appear in the program listings with
the
symbol in front of their titles.
Note: Since the FiOS TV DVR gives you the ability to schedule a program to
record automatically, you won’t ever have to miss a show you want to watch.
Just highlight a show you want to watch in the future and press RECORD on
your remote control. You can then decide if you want to record the entire series,
and whether to add padding at the beginning or end of the show.
Create and use a list of my Favorite Channels?
To create your Favorite Channels list, press the FAV button on the remote. You’ll
see a program listing made up of all available channels. Use the ARROW buttons
to highlight each channel you want included on your list. Press OK to add a check
mark next to it. Only the checked channels appear in the Favorites list.
Select one of my Favorite Channels?
Press the FAV button on your remote. You’ll see a program listing made up of
only your Favorite Channels. Choose a program to watch by scrolling with the
and
ARROW buttons and pressing OK.
Edit my Favorite Channels list?
Press the FAV button on your remote. Choose MY FAVORITES and use the
ARROW buttons to highlight each channel in turn. Then press OK to add (or
delete) a check mark next to it. Only the checked channels appear in the
Favorites list.
Not all services and features may be available and some may require additional
equipment at an additional cost. Your use of FiOS TV will require your acceptance of
the Terms of Service, a copy of which will be given to you at the time of installation.

Digital Video
Recorder
41
Digital Video Recording lets you control the show.
Your FiOS TV Digital Video Recorder (DVR) represents an entirely new
way to enjoy watching television. You can pause and rewind live TV —
and even record one show while watching another. It puts you in
control of your TV viewing schedule, enabling you to watch what you
want, when you want.
PLAY
FFWD (FAST-FORWARD)
REW (REWIND)

LIST (RECORDINGS)
Getting Started
Using the Remote Control
Your remote control has special buttons designed for managing all the
features of the DVR.
Use the remote control buttons (PLAY, STOP, PAUSE, RECORD,
REW, FFWD) just as you would on a VCR, to control digital recording
and playback of recorded programs and live TV.
Several other buttons (REPLAY, LIST, LIVE TV) have exclusive DVR
functions, which are described in this guide.
Recording Capacity
Your DVR is designed to record up to 120 hours of standard definition
digital TV programming. Recording analog or High Definition TV (HDTV)
programs will substantially reduce this capacity (due to the format of
analog programming and the much larger amount of information in an
HDTV broadcast stream).
42
Selecting an Item with the Remote Control
In this guide, “Select” means to highlight an on-screen item by moving
to it with the ARROW buttons and then pressing OK.
Recording TV
Record a Show That’s Currently Playing
Record the show you are
watching by pressing RECORD
on the remote. A red indicator
appears in the upper right
corner of the screen for a few
seconds to let you know that
recording has started. Since the
DVR continuously stores in its
memory the channel that you’re
watching from the time you first
tune it in, the portion of the show
that you watched prior to pressing the RECORD button will also be
recorded, up to the limit of the internal memory. (Program limits:
Standard Definition = 70 minutes; High Definition = 18 minutes.)
Schedule Recording of an Upcoming Show or Series
Use the ARROW buttons to highlight the show you wish to record in the
TV Listings. Or use SEARCH to find and select a show. Press RECORD
on your remote. A red dot will appear after the show title in the listings.
Shrek 2
11/10 1 Hr 32 Min
example
If the show is part of a series, you can schedule recording of each episode
of the entire series by pressing RECORD a second time. With our smart
SERIES RECORDING feature, each show in the series will be automatically
recorded, even if its time slot or length is changed by the broadcaster. Three
red dots indicate SERIES RECORDING has been scheduled (pressing
RECORD a third time will cancel the scheduled recording).
Desperate Housewives
11/10 1 Hr 0 Min
example
43
You can choose whether to
record only first-run episodes,
whether to add padding at the
beginning or end of a show, or
whether to permanently save
a show.
In addition, a SERIES PRIORITY
feature lets you rank the series
you want to record, so that the
DVR automatically resolves
schedule conflicts, before they occur.
Review or Cancel Scheduled Recordings of Shows or Series
Select RECORDED TV from the MENU. The list of shows scheduled
to be recorded can be seen under the heading SCHEDULED. Or
choose SERIES MANAGER and then SCHEDULED SERIES to see a
list of series that are scheduled for recording. You will also see a
reminder about how much recording capacity you have used.
To cancel a scheduled recording, select the show or series to be
cancelled. Select CANCEL RECORDING or CANCEL SERIES,
depending on which you choose to cancel. Press EXIT on your
remote to resume watching live TV.
Play a Recorded Show
Select RECORDED TV from the Main Menu. Highlight a program that
you want to watch on the list of recorded programs, press the OK
button and select PLAY.
Pause/Rewind/Fast-Forward a Recorded Show
Use the PAUSE, REW, FFWD, STOP and PLAY buttons on your
remote to control playback of a recorded program, exactly as you
would with a VCR. When you use any of these buttons, the Progress
Bar (see Progress Bar on page 47) will always appear to show you
exactly where you are in the program.
Multiple speeds of fast-forward and rewind can be accessed by
44
pressing the REW or FFWD buttons more than
once. Press once for 3x speed, twice for 15x,
three times for 60x and four times for 300x.
Keep or Delete a Recorded Show
Select RECORDED TV from the Main Menu.
Highlight a program that you want to delete from the list of DVR
RECORDINGS and select ERASE RECORDING.
Once the recording space becomes full, the DVR will automatically
delete the oldest shows to make space for new recordings. To
prevent the DVR from deleting a recording when it needs more space,
select RECORDED TV from the Main Menu, choose a program that
you want to keep and then select the SAVE UNTIL button.
Record High Definition TV Shows
Recording a show broadcast in HDTV is accomplished in the same
way as recording a normal TV show (see Recording TV ). Note: Due to
the larger amount of information in an HDTV broadcast, your DVR will
hold fewer hours of HDTV programming.
Record Pay Per View Programs
A Pay Per View program can be recorded with the DVR for later
viewing. Simply press the RECORD button on your remote when the
Pay Per View program begins. You can also schedule future Pay Per
View shows to be automatically recorded. Just choose the
PURCHASE AND RECORD option when selecting a show. It will
automatically be recorded and ready for you to watch when you want.
Dual-tuner Feature
Your Verizon FiOS TV Set Top Box is equipped with dual tuners, so you can:
• Record two different shows at the same time, even while watching
an earlier recorded show.
• Record a show while watching a Video on Demand movie.
• Record one show while watching a different live show.
45
Controlling Live TV with the DVR
How the DVR Handles Live TV
Whenever you tune in to a Verizon FiOS TV
channel, the DVR instantly begins storing
the show in its internal memory and will
continue to do so until you tune to a
different channel. At this point, it discards
the previous channel’s show and begins
storing the new one. This memory technology
allows you to control live TV in the ways
described below. Once the internal memory is full,
it will progressively store the most recent portion of that channel’s
show, discarding the oldest.
Pause or Resume Live TV; Frame Advance
Press PAUSE on your remote to freeze the TV show
you’re watching. Pressing the PAUSE button repeatedly
will advance the video one frame at a time. When you’re
ready, press PLAY to resume the show where you left off.
Rewind or Fast-Forward Live TV
Press REW on your remote to rewind the show you’re
watching to an earlier point in time. (The DVR continues to
store the live broadcast in its memory.) You can only
rewind as far back in time as when you first tuned in to this channel, up
to the limit of the internal memory. Press PLAY to resume watching
from the desired point in the show.
Press FFWD to fast-forward a previously paused
live TV show. Press PLAY to resume watching.
Pressing REW or FFWD up to four times allows
you to increase the speed at which you rewind
or fast-forward a program. Press once for 3x
speed, twice for 15x, three times for 60x and
four times for 300x.
46
Pause Live TV
Press PAUSE, then FFWD or REW for a
slow-motion, fast-forward or rewind effect.
Replay Live TV
Press the REPLAY button on your remote for an instant replay of the
last seven seconds of the show you’re watching, whether it’s live TV
or a previously recorded show.
Resume Watching Live TV
If you’re watching a live program delayed by pausing or rewinding live
TV, pressing the LIVE TV button jumps the show forward to the point
currently being broadcast.
The Progress Bar
The Progress Bar (shown below) appears whenever you pause,
rewind or fast-forward a live or recorded program. It shows how much
of the current show is stored in memory (orange bar), as well as what
point of the show you’re viewing now (white line) and how far behind
the live broadcast you are (end of orange bar).
