HD viewing requires that the program be transmitted in HD and that the box be connected to a high-definition TV set. Recording capacity for single room DVRs depends on the model. The highest capacity models record up to 300 hours in SD and 60 hours in HD. Models range between 55 to 300 hours in SD and between 14 to 60 hours in HD.

Due to the large number of devices in the market, full compatibility with the FUSION Remote DVR Scheduler cannot be guaranteed on all devices.

Not all HD channels are available with a CableCARDTM. Music Choice channels may be limited by your TV set. Consult your TV set owner’s manual for this capability.

Modifying, cancelling service, disconnection or non-payment may result in different pricing. Other restrictions may apply. Prices are subject to change.
