Swapping Between Two Programs

Swap Button Icon

Press the Swap button on your remote to switch back and forth between your DVR’s two tuners so you can control the action of two programs. You can rewind what you’ve missed, or fast-forward to skip ahead in a live program you paused. If you switch between two programs without using the Swap button (for example, by using the Last button) you will lose the buffer and be unable to control the action of the two programs. (You DVR automatically creates a buffer of the program you are currently watching. The buffer temporarily records up to 90 minutes of the program until you tune to another channel or turn off your DVR.)

DVR Clipping

Controlling DVR

The clipping feature outsmarts your scheduled recordings if they overlap by five minutes or less. For example, your DVR will stay tuned to a show that runs a couple minutes over the hour to catch the end, and still be smart enough to pick up the second recording you have scheduled once it’s already in progress — even if the second show has a higher priority. No more missing the cliffhanger! Your DVR will clip the first few minutes of the second recording and begin recording as soon as the first program ends.

The word “Clipped” will appear next to the program title in your DVR Recordings List to inform you which programs were clipped.

Live Program Notice

Left/Right Button Icon
Controlling DVR

If a program is marked as a Live Program in the Guide’s program information, such as a sporting event, you will automatically be asked when scheduling the recording if you would like to extend the duration of the recording. Use the left/right arrow buttons on your remote to extend the duration of the recording up to two hours.
