Let People Schedule Ahead of Time

This is a guest post by Darryl Vicks

DVR’s have become very popular in millions of households. A DVR is a digital video recorder that consumers can use to record movies and television shows from their television sets. I use my DVR with directtv Oregonand I love how well the DVR performs.

The DVR is separate from the television and looks like a square box. There are both HDTV DVR’s and regular DVR’s to record programming. HDTV DVR’s only differ in that they typically have a much clearer picture than regular DVR’s do.

A DVR works by having people select the programs that they want to watch later; users can fast forward, rewind, and pause the programs that have been recorded. There is a remote that works with the box and a guide will be displayed on the screen. The user then uses the arrow to click on a program that they want to watch. After this, they click DVR and set up the recording. People can view their schedule and record one recording while watching another.

Users can use the auto tune function to automatically change their TV to the channel that they want at a certain time. They can also use the DVR to set timers so that they can be reminded to watch certain programs during the week. The DVR typically lets people schedule recording up to a week in advance.
