    Function descriptions:
    • Insert Marker: Inserts a new marker at this current point of playback.
      This allows you to access this specific point in the recording or set a chapter you wish to hide.
      Press OK on the remote control to add a marker. Press EDIT to continue browsing the video.
    • Hide / Unhide Chapter: Hides or unhides the current section.
