Introduction
Get ready to free your TV. You’re going to love the new control you have over how and when you watch
television once you’re free from the usual constraints of ordinary television.
This extraordinary television service offers a powerful new DVR-giving freedom to record your favorite
programs and watch them on your schedule. Using the buttons on the remote control, you can fast
forward through parts you don’t want to watch and rewind to watch the things you want to see again.
You even have the freedom to control Live TV. Each time you tune to a channel, the DVR begins making
a temporary recording of the program you are watching. This gives you the ability to pause the current
program if the phone rings and the freedom to rewind or instant replay a scene that you just have to see
again. Your DVR will record up to one hour of Live TV.
It’s important to understand the Live TV recording is not permanent. Unlike recording a program on your
DVR to watch later, the DVR records Live TV in a temporary storage or a buffer. For Live TV
recordings, this temporary recording (buffer) will be erased if any of the following occur:



The DVR is turned off
You watch the same channel for longer than the temporary recording buffer period. The most
recent hour of the program is kept in the temporary recording
You switch to another program. When you change channels, your DVR begins to store the
new program. It removes the previous program you were watching from the temporary
storage.
This user guide will walk you through the many features of this extraordinary TV service. But as always,
if you have questions or problems, just give us a call.
