DIRECTV Plus® DVR Basics


If you've never used a DIRECTV Plus DVR receiver before, here are the basic remote control functions to help you get started:

  • PAUSE: Use this to pause live TV for up to 90 minutes.
  • PLAY: Resume watching live TV if paused. If you press and hold this button, you can advance the action in slow motion.
  • FAST FORWARD and REWIND: These two buttons come with four different speeds.
  • REPLAY: Jump back in the program in 6-second increments.
  • ADVANCE: Skip ahead in 30-second increments.
  • RECORD: Press this button to save a live show to watch later, or go into the program guide and record a future show or series.
