How can I manage my DVR recordings?

  • "Manage" means recording, watching, deleting or setting recording options.
  • You can manage DVR recordings from just about any place you can see the program name including:
    • the channel listings on the FUSION guide
    • search results
    • Recorded TV menu from any FUSION Player.
  • You can also find all of your recordings (and scheduled recordings) by pressing the DVR button on your remote control.

How do I know if all 6 tuners are being used?

FUSION has a built-in conflict detection system. A message will appear on screen anytime you try to use more than six tuners at one time. You may be recording four shows and watching live TV on two FUSION Players. That’s fine. But if you try to record or watch a seventh show at the same time, the conflict detection message provides you with a menu so you can decide how to resolve the conflict.

How do I set my personal recording preferences when scheduling recordings?

  1. Select MENU
  2. Navigate to RECORDED TV using the left/right arrows
  3. Select OPTIONS
  4. Choose the preference you wish to change:
    • Set Recording Defaults – Lets you choose automatic settings for recordings, such as starting or stopping early or late, how many episodes to keep, how long to keep programs before deletion and whether first run or repeat episodes will be recorded.
    • Set Series Options – Lets you change priority, cancel series, see all times and set recording options for the entire series.
    • Review cancelled and deleted recordings – This is a parental feature that allows anyone to know every program that has been recorded, even after it has been deleted.
    • Review, programs scheduled to record – Lists all programs currently scheduled to record.
    • Check Recording Space - Provides detail on remaining recording space.
