Time Shift Buffer
As soon as you turn on this recorder, the

disk permanently, you have to mark the section
in the 'Time Shift Buffer' for recording to
prevent them from being deleted.

Pause Live TV
A live TV programme is now under your
control. You can pause the programme by
pressing PAUSE button and resume playback
at the scene it was interrupted by pressing

TV programme, just press TUNER.
