How can I use the Time Shift Buffer (TSB) to record a program to the hard disk?


The Time Shift Buffer offers you a fast way to record the program that you are currently watching.

  2. Use the / keys to select  the beginning of the scene that you want to record and press PAUSE .
  3. Press the  REC button on the remote control. The video bar now changes to a field to enter the end time of the recording.

  4. Press the  REC button repeatedly to increase the recording time in 30-minute increments. You also can use the numeric keys 0-9 to enter the recording time.
  5. Press PLAY to return to the broadcast..
  6. Press the STOP   button or turn off the recorder to stop the recording before the scheduled ending. Press the CLEAR button if you wish to delete the recording.
