Playlist Management: DIRECTV DVRS & HD DVRS


If you have a DIRECTV DVR, you can find all of your recorded shows on your DIRECTV DVR Playlist. To watch shows from your DIRECTV Playlist, press LIST on your remote, select a program, and then press PLAY. Press STOP to return to live television.

The DIRECTV Playlist displays the most recently recorded shows at the top, but you can customize your options by pressing the yellow button on the remote. In order to delete shows from your DIRECTV DVR Playlist, highlight the show and press the red button on your remote. To delete multiple programs, select Mark Programs to Delete on the DIRECTV Playlist Options screen and follow the instructions given.
