On the Dish Network DVR remote, there is a "skip back" button that brings the program back about 10 seconds each time it is pressed. You can use this during live TV, which is nice if you missed a word or want to see a certain scene again. In this video, you can see how the program was skipped back a few times and then skipped forward to return to the live broadcast.
The first part of this video shows how to view the list of programs that have already been recorded and viewed at any time. The second portion briefly shows the schedule of programs that are set to be recorded that day. The programs with lines through them indicate that the program does not meet the criteria that I have set up the timer for. For instance, the program may be a repeat and I have set the timer to record only new episodes. On the third part of the video, it shows the timers I have set up to record various programs. The programs that are listed as "Manual Timer" are programs that were recorded from local TV stations using a roof-top antenna. The Dish Network DVR allows you to connect a standard TV antenna and receive local channels that are broadcast in the digital format. It works very well in my area and saves me a few bucks every month since I don't have to pay Dish Network the extra $5 or so per month to receive my local channels from the satellite.
The Dish Network "Dish On Demand" feature is a lot like the "on demand" features that the cable companies offer. You can browse a selection of movies that you can watch anytime for a fee. Note that I did not show all movies that were available.
The Dish Network DVR on-screen program guide has some powerful features. This video demonstrates the one that allows you to search the entire program guide for all movies that will be aired over the next few days. As you can see, it listed over 12,000 movies, but they do include pay-per-view and subscription channels like HBO and Showtime.
The Dish Network DVR also allows you to rewind live TV. Great for catching that big explosion again on an action movie or a great play on a sports broadcast. You'll notice that the rewind has 4 speeds. You can rewind at 4, 15, 60 and 300 times normal speed. After the rewind you can see the fast forward feature used to return to the live broadcast. Fast forward has the same 4 speeds that rewind does.
The DISH Network DVR has a number of lock features that are usually used by parents who wish to prevent their children from viewing certain programming. Among the locks available are ratings, channels, pay-per-view, adult content and other locks.
This is one of my favorite features of the DISH Network DVR. A button on the remote allows you to jump ahead 30 seconds each time it is pressed, so you can zip through commercials quickly and easily. For more info visit: *******www.homesfornh****/dish
This DISH Network DVR feature allows you to view programs in the program guide by selecting a theme. You can view listings for sports, like baseball, or programs about rock music or programs for kids. For more info, visit: *******www.homesfornh****/dish
Here you can see how easy it is to browse the Dish Network DVR program guide and select a program to record. In this case, I opted to record all episodes that will air in the future. The little circle with the "X" in it that you see on some programs indicates a program that was set up to record, but will not be recorded. That is because the program is set up to record only new episodes, and those marked with the "X" are not new episodes. For more info, visit *******www.homesfornh****/dish
