Chapter 1: Overview & Setup


The Digital Video Recorder, or DVR, is designed specifically for recording and playback of High

Definition Television (HDTV). The DVR connects to a Digital Television (DTV) via DTVLink® (IEEE

1394) to offer control over digital video playback. Think of it as a “tape-less” digital VCR for digital television. You can pause, fast forward, reverse, or use instant replay, so you’ll never miss a moment. But unlike a traditional VCR where you wait for a program to finish recording before you start watching it, the DVR allows you to “Pause Live TV.” This means you can pause, rewind, and play back a digital program as it is being recorded without losing any of the recording.

Record all of your favorite digital programs while maintaining the same high quality digital picture that it was broadcast in.

The DVR is sometimes referred to as an Audio Video Hard Drive (AVHD).
