Chapter 2 Customizing DVR Services
Record from Quick Settings Menu: Allow
Subscribers to Record a Program from the Quick
This section describes how to customize the DVR service so that subscribers can
record a currently tuned program from the Quick Settings menu. Adding this
selection to the Quick Settings menu gives subscribers another way to record a
currently tuned program. (Subscribers can also record a program by pressing the
RECORD key on the remote control or by selecting the program from the IPG.)
Allowing Subscribers to Record a Currently Tuned Program from the Quick
Most cable service providers configure their systems so that all DVRs in the system
use this custom behavior. However, a system can be configured so that only DVRs in
certain hubs use this custom behavior. For assistance configuring this custom
behavior for use by specific hubs, refer to Chapter 1 of Enhancing Your Subscribers'
Experience: SARA Configurable Options (part number 4002178).
On the DNCS Administrative Console, select the Server Applications tab.
Click DHCT Config. The DHCT Configure Prompt window opens.
To provide all DVRs in your system with this custom behavior, click Global. The
Set Up Global DHCT Configuration window opens.
Select the Quick Settings tab. The Quick Settings tab appears in the forefront.
If necessary, click the Has Record option to enable it.
Note: When the Has Record option is enabled, the selection box to the left of the
option is yellow. When enabled, subscribers have the option to record the
currently tuned program by selecting this option from the Quick Settings menu.
Click Save. The Application Server sends this custom behavior to all DVRs in
your system. As a result, subscribers with a DVR can record a currently tuned
program by either pressing the RECORD key on the remote control or by making
a selection from the Quick Settings menu.
Do you need to customize other aspects of DVR service?
If yes, continue customizing the service by following the appropriate
procedure in this chapter.
If no, verify that DVR service functions according to the customizations you
have made. Go to Testing DVR Services (on page 37).
