A Digital Video Recorder, or DVR, is a simple way to watch your favorite shows when it is convenient for you. Every HTC TV MAX subscription includes 10 hours (up to 300 hours with the All-In Plan) of DVR storage for free across all profiles.
There are no limits to the number of channels that can be recorded simultaneously. The only constraint is the number of hours allowed with your subscription tier. DVR storage is shared across all profiles. Once a show is recorded, most are accessible by everyone on the account at home or on the go.
Access most recorded shows on the go on nearly any internet-connected device. HTC TV MAX allows the user to record any TV program and watch it when convenient. It also allows the user to schedule recordings, play back shows, delete, and manage recordings all from HTC TV MAX devices at home or on the go through the HTC TV MAX app. The DVR allows for all the regular options like end a recording late, record only new episodes, or choose channel preferences.
How do I schedule a recording?
From a live program – Press the Select or Ok button, or swipe depending on your remote. This will bring up a screen overlay with several options. Navigate to the Rec option and press Select again on the remote.
From the Guide or When Browsing – Select the program to record while browsing anywhere within the Guide, Replay TV, Search, or while browsing Shows & Movies. This will bring up the detailed information about that program including some options below. You should see a Record option. Select that button to start the recording.
The next step provides a choice to “Record this episode only,” or “Record all episodes.” The latter option may also provide a list of channels that the program will air.
To record only NEW episodes of a given program, set a program to record using the previous steps. A pop-up will then appear asking if you’d like to “Record this episode only” or “Record all episodes.” Choose the option you want and you will see a confirmation appear at the bottom of the screen.
How do I extend recording time?
After a program has been scheduled to record, navigate to it in the Scheduled section of the DVR. To the right of the program will be three boxes, the third labeled “Extend.” Select that option and choose to extend the recording by 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes.
