Reminders, Auto Tunes and Recordings: Setting, Editing and Deleting

A Scheduled Event is any setting you create that causes the system to remind you about a program or record a program automatically.
There are three types of Scheduled Events: Reminders, Auto Tunes and Recordings.


Reminder: Informs you a program is about to come on
Auto Tune: Automatically changes the channel when the program is about to start.
Recording: Automatically records the program to your set top box.
Note: Your set top box must support recording to use the RECORD event.


Setting A Reminder, Auto Tune or Recording


1. Pick a Program
Find a Program you want within the Guide. Highlight its listing and press OK.
Note: If you are setting a recording, highlight the listing and press RECORD instead of OK; skip steps 2 and 3.




2. Set the Reminder, Auto Tune or Record

Highlight Record Program, Set Reminder, or Set Auto Tune and then press OK. You will then be returned to
the Guide.




The program listing will now show an icon next to the program's name such as the following:

Reminder: A few minutes before your program comes on, a box will appear on your screen telling you that you have a reminder. Press INFO to display the reminder. Highlight the button showing the program name and press OK to watch the program, or highlight CANCEL and press OK to ignore the reminder.

Auto Tune: Just before the program begins, a message will display, giving you the option to tune in or cancel.


Recording
: If you set a recording, you don't need to do anything else. Once your program begins, your set top box will record it for you. To watch your recording, go to DVR.


Setting a Series Recording
If you choose to record a program that is part of a regular series, you will be offered the option to record the series. This allows you to record every episode of a favorite program.

Note: Recording is not available if your set top box doesn't support it.

1. Pick a Program from the Guide
Find any episode of the series that you want to record. Highlight the program listing and press OK.
2. Set the Recording
Highlight RECORD SERIES and then press OK.
3. Return to the Guide
Once you have set the series recording you will be returned to the Guide. The program listing now shows an icon next to the program's name.  Every upcoming episode of the series will be recorded.

Editing A Series Recording: Start/End times
Once you have created a recording, you can adjust exactly when the recording begins or ends to make sure nothing is missed in case the broadcaster's time doesn't match up with yours exactly.

1. Pick an Upcoming Recording
Locate the program to be recorded within the guide. Highlight its listing and press OK.
2. Edit a Recording
From the options shown for this program, highlight EDIT RECORDING and press OK.
3. Pad Start and End Times

Use the UP and DOWN ARROW KEYS to choose START or END and press OK. Once you see arrowheads above
and below the Start or End box, use the UP and DOWN ARROW KEYS to adjust the START time or END time.

Start adjusts the amount of recording time added to the recording prior to when it's scheduled to begin so that you don't miss any of the beginning of the program.

End adjusts the amount of recording time added to the recording after it is scheduled to end so you don't miss any of the end of the program.

Once you have adjusted the start and end time, highlight OK and press OK on the remote to save your changes.

Editing A Recording: Skipping Episodes
Once you have created a series recording, you can adjust which episodes of the series are recorded and which are skipped.

1. Pick a Series Recording
Locate any program in the series to be recorded within the Guide. Highlight its listing and press OK.
2. Edit a Series Recording
From the options shown for this program, highlight Edit Series Recording, then press OK.
3. Adjust Series Recording Options
Use the UP and DOWN ARROW KEYS to choose any of the options and press OK. Once you see arrowheads
above and below the options setting box, use the UP and DOWN ARROW KEYS to adjust that setting. See below:

Preference determines whether to record the program when shown in standard definition or only when shown in high definition.

Episodes determines whether to record re-runs and new episodes of the series or only new episodes

Start and End determines how much time to add at the start and end time of the recording so that none of the program is missed.

Limit To determines how many episodes of the series are saved. If set to anything other than all, the system will delete the oldest recorded episode of the series once the limit is reached.

Once you have adjusted the series settings, highlight OK and press OK to save your changes.

skipping that episode. If you decide to record this episode after all, repeat this procedure and choose Record
Episode from the options shown and press OK. The dots will become red again.

Cancel an Auto Tune, Reminder or Recording
