Control Live TV
With a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) from your cable provider, you have the opportunity to
control live TV. When you tune to a channel, the DVR automatically begins making a temporary
recording of the program. Once the temporary recording begins, you can Pause, Rewind and
Fast Forward through the recording. Your DVR will record up to two hours of Live TV.*

• Change channels
• Watch more than 2 hours of the same channel – after 2 hours the DVR will buffer only the
most recent 2 hours
