To be able to control live TV with i-Guide, you will also need to have DVR service. When you tune to a channel, the DVR automatically begins a temporary recording of the program with an approximate two-hour buffer. You can pause, rewind or fast-forward through this temporary recording and, in effect, control live TV by using the buttons on your remote.
While you're pausing, rewinding or fast-forwarding a program, the status bar will appear. Green indicates the length of the program in the buffer. Red indicates you are watcing a DVR recording in progress. White indicates the length of multiple programs that have been recorded in the buffer.
Note: The temporary recording will be erased if you turn off the DVR, change channels or watch more than approximately two hours of the same channel.
