Digital Video Recorder (DVR)

The DCX3520e-M set-top is equipped with an internal hard drive for DVR (Digital Video
Recorder) functionality, which provides the ability to record both Standard Definition TV
(SDTV) and High Definition TV (HDTV) programs. Storage time varies based on the video
format and specific channel.
The DCX3520e-M set-top is also equipped with an eSATA interface on the rear panel.
This interface allows the connection of an external hard disk drive to increase the DVR
storage capacity of the DCX3520e-M. Note: your service provider must authorize your
DCX3520e-M for external DVR functionality.
DVR offers the ability to control your viewing experience by pausing (time shifting) live
TV and providing trick playback modes (pause, fast forward, slow forward, fast rewind,
slow rewind). You may experience a slight delay when switching between time-shifted
and live TV.
The DCX3520e-M model also includes integrated MoCA™ networking which supports
whole-home DVR capabilities. This feature extends the DVR experience to other
compatible non-DVR set-tops with integrated MoCA, when enabled by application
software. On your non-DVR set-top you can now view your DVR recordings, playback
content, and set future recordings all from another room in your home.
With the DCX3520e-M set-top, you can:
Record Programming. The total hours of recorded content will vary based on the
storage capacity of your DVR, the storage capacity of your specific external drive (if
authorized), and type of content (digital SD or HD and encoding method, MPEG-2 or
MPEG-4) being recorded.
