Can I control live TV?

Use the same playback control buttons that you use to pause, fast-forward, and rewind recorded TV, you can control television programs that are currently showing in real-time. 

  • On your remote, press the "PAUSE" button to pause the program for up to 90 minutes. 
  • Press the "PLAY" button to resume playing the paused program. 
  • Press "FF" or "FWD" to fast-forward continuously or skip forward in short segments up to the point at which the program is playing in real-time. Press FF once, twice, or three times to fast-forward at increasing speeds. 
  • Press "REW" or REPLAY to rewind continuously or skip backward in short segments. Press "REW" once, twice, or three times to rewind at increasing speeds.
