Whole-Home DVR service: How to stop and resume programming in different rooms


With Whole-Home DVR service, your DVR playlist is shared across all the receivers in your Whole-Home network.
So you can start watching a show in one room and finish where you left off in another room.

  1. Press the STOP or EXIT button on your remote control to stop the playback of the show you're watching.
  2. In the room where you want resume watching, press the LIST button on your remote control to bring up the DVR playlist.
  3. Use the ARROW buttons to highlight the program you were watching in the other room, then press SELECT.
    Highlight Resume and press the SELECT button again.
