How do I find out if my scheduled recording was successful?


If you're next to your TV, press the MENU button on your receiver and select MANAGE RECORDINGS. (If you have an HD DVR, select RECORDINGS, then MANAGE RECORDINGS.) Then select TO-DO LIST to see if your program is listed. If you set a series recording from your computer, select PRIORITIZER to view your series recordings and change the priority of your programs. If you don't see your scheduled program in either of these places, select "History" for a list of programs that have been recorded. You'll also see which programs were not recorded and why.
