What are the features and benefits of the Digital Video recorder (DVR)?

The greatest advantage of a DVR is that it provides you flexibility, simple operation, and makes sure you do not miss a moment of your favorite program.

Because it is constantly recording, you can PAUSE/REWIND live TV and REPLAY favorite moments. Since the DVR continues recording even if you rewind or replay scenes, you will not miss any of your program.

It also allows you to schedule the recording of programs up to two weeks ahead of time. It is as simple as locating the program of your choice in the Guide and pressing on REC.

It is important to be aware of the recording capacity of your DVR so that you do not accidentally run out of space.

Approximate recording capacity:

  • Standard Definition – Recording capacity is up to 360 hours (depending on the DVR model).
  • High definition (HDTV) – Recording capacity is up to 90 hours (depending on the DVR model).

Note: We also offer TiVo - Whole Home DVR which allows you to record up to 150 hours in HD and 1050 hours in standard. With this model, you can now record six shows at the same time while watching a previously recorded show, or five shows while watching a live show.
