With the feature of playback and digital recording integrated into an explicit on-screen guide, the Charter DVR brings you new opportunities to not only record your favorite TV shows but manipulating it live when compared to a VCR or a standard digital tuner. It will take a while after the installation of all the programming available, to load into the graphical on-screen guide, but as it does you may explore the potential of the digital guide. It is empowered with flexible recording options including playback and the capability to resume, rewind and pause the live TV. All this can be done just by using your Charter remote control.
