You can customize your DVR settings, including the default recording language, the extra time (padding) to add before and after a recorded show, and which shows you want to record in a series (first runs, reruns, or both).
To set default recording options:
Press on the remote control, select Settings, and press ok.
Select DVR and press ok to display the DVR Settings page.
- Change any of the following recording options:
Default Recording Language Set the language you prefer to record, if there's a choice on any of the shows you record. The default setting is English. Default Recording Start Padding Automatically add a number of minutes to the beginning of all new recordings. For example, if you know that a show typically starts early, set this to, say, 5 minutes to ensure you don't miss the beginning of the show. The default setting is 5 minutes. To remove padding, select None. Default Recording End Padding Automatically add a number of minutes to the end of all new recordings. For example, if you know that a show typically runs late, set this to, say, 5 minutes to ensure you don't miss the end of the show. The default setting is 5 minutes. To remove padding, select None. Default Series Recording Options Set the default for series recordings to first runs only (shows that haven't yet aired), first runs and reruns, or reruns only. This setting determines the default only; you can always change this setting for specific series recordings. The default setting is First runs & reruns. Manage DVR Library
