  • Set Record switch to start recording the show.

  • A button to transfer the show to another screen.

  • A closed caption (CC) button to turn closed captions on and off on the TV.

  • An SAP button to select a second audio program option on the TV. 

  • An info button (top right corner) to see the Detailed Info screen for the show.
