How do I record a show? / How do I record a series? / How do I cancel a recording?

You can set a show to record in a couple of different ways. First, if you are watching a show you would like to record, you can simply push the “Record” button in the top left corner of the remote. A banner that says “Recording” will flash across the top of the screen letting you know that it has worked. Also, your set-top box will have a red light on the front next to “Rec”. This will record the program you are currently watching. It will not keep recording indefinitely. If you want to record what you are currently watching and the shows that come on after it, use the second method to record each individual program. (See below for the second method.)

The second way to record programs is done on the guide. Use this method if you would like to record something that has not yet started or something you are not currently watching. Press the “Guide” button. Navigate to the show you would like to record and push the “Record” button. A banner that says either “Recording” or “Recording Scheduled” will flash across the top of the screen letting you know that it has worked. Also, you will see a red dot on the guide next to the program set to record. If you want to record a certain show every time it is on, simply push the “Record” button a second time. A banner that says “Series Recording Scheduled” will flash across the top of your screen and you will see three overlapping red circles next to the show each time it appears on the guide. To cancel a recording, push “Record” one more time. A banner will flash at the top of the screen saying “Series Recording Canceled” and you will no longer see the red circles next to the show on the guide. You can also cancel recordings by pressing “Menu” and selecting “Recorded TV”.
