times. The on-screen indicator will tell you at what speed you are controlling playback.
Q. Can I set the DVR to skip commercials as it is recording?
A. No. You can only fast forward through commercials if you're watching a previously recorded program.

A. Yes! When you stop playback of a recorded program, it will stop where you left off. To continue watching the
program, select Resume or Restart from the Action Icons.
Q. On occasion, a recording starts a minute or two after the program has begun. Why?
A. The DVR timer is synchronized with the program guide time. If a broadcaster starts the program a minute earlier
than the program guide's scheduled time, the DVR will miss that first minute. You can program your DVR to start
early or end late by adjusting your Recording Options.

A. If the beginning of the program did not record, you may set it to record after the program began. If the end
of the program did not record, the DVR may have reached its storage capacity before it was able to record the

Managing Your Recordings (Optional Feature)
Q. How many hours of programming can I store on my DVR?
A. Recording capacity depends on the video format that is being recorded. Your DVR can record up to 25 hours of
analog, between 30 and 60 hours of digital programming, or up to 12 hours of High Definition programming. See
the "Managing Your Personal Video Library" section in this manual for more information.
Q. How long can I keep My Recordings?
A. You can keep them as long as you want. Just remember, the recording space is limited, so you may need to delete
some recorded programs from time to time in order to make room for new ones.
Q. How will I know when I'm almost out of recording space?
A. An on-screen message will appear advising you when recording space is low (80% full) or full. You can also
manually delete recordings and manage recording space from the recorded program's Information Screen.
If you are recording a program and run out of recording space, the recording will stop. You can always see how much
recording space is available from My Recordings. You can also manually delete recordings and set your DVR to
automatically delete recorded programs when space is needed. See:"Managing Your Personal Video Library" .
Q. Does the DVR automatically delete programs when the record space is full?
A. Only if you set it up that way. The DVR will automatically delete programs if you tell it to do so by setting the
programs to be deleted when space is needed. When the record space is full, the oldest recordings that you have set
to be deleted, will be deleted first. If you do not want the DVR to automatically delete certain recordings, you can set
them so that they are only deleted by you.
