How do I record a show on my TIVO set top box?

To record a show that is currently live:

  • View the channel that has the current live program you wish to record, and hit the “Red” circular button right next to the “Guide” button
  • The show will be recorded and recording will stop at the end of the show

To record a show that will air in the future:

  • If you want to record a show not currently being broadcast, hit the “Guide” button and move your selection over the program you wish to record
  • When you find the show you want to record, hit the “Red” button and the show will be recorded in it’s entirety.

Your main TIVO set top has 6 tuners, so you can record up to 6 shows at the same time.
