The fastest and easiest way to begin recording is to use the RECORD button on your remote control.
You can also start a quick record in Guide. Highlight a program you want to record using the Arrow Keys and press RECORD. If the program is currently on, recording will begin immediately. The program will be recorded until it is scheduled to finish. To manually stop the recording before it is finished, press STOP. If the program comes on in the future, your system will record the program for you automatically.
