Resolution Steps

Using Trick Play on Live TV
  • When you tune to a channel, TiVo starts a Live TV buffer, so you can pause, rewind and fast forward the program you are watching

  • The Live TV buffer saves as far back as 30 minutes, as long as you don't change the channel

  • If you change the channel, the buffer starts over again on the new channel you are watching

The Status Bar
  • The green status bar shows a one hour period on Live and recorded TV, allowing you to keep track of where you are

  • The green line in the status bar shows the recorded portion of the show or the buffer when in live TV

  • The thick white line shows the current point in time, the smaller white tick marks show 15 minute intervals
