Pause, rewind or fast-forward live Optik TV

How to use one PVR to play shows across multiple home TVs

One PVR is all you need to record and play back your shows on up to 6 TVs in your home. Pause a recorded program in one room – and pick it up from the same spot in a different room. (Each additional TV requires a digital box only, not a PVR.)

When you’re watching a show, your PVR will automatically save (buffer) it for up to 90 minutes. You can pause, rewind and fast-forward whenever you like on the TV connected to your PVR.

When you pause live TV, a status bar will show you where you are in the program and how much has been temporarily saved. Pausing for longer than 90 minutes causes the program to start playing automatically from the point where you paused it.

All temporarily-saved live TV will be deleted once you change the channel or turn your TV off. If you want to save what you're watching, you can select Record. The program will be recorded back to when you tuned in, or the last 90 minutes, whichever is less.
