How to Record From a Time Warner DVR

By Whitney Coy

With Time Warner's digital video recorder (DVR), you'll never miss a show you wanted to watch. The DVR allows you to record up to two shows at once, so you can watch one channel and record on another. You can also set up a DVR to record an entire series, so it will remember when your favorite programs air, even if you don't.

Press "Guide" on the remote control to pull up the program guide.

Step 2
