DVR Auto-Correction

As you fast forward or rewind a DVR recording, this feature will automatically adjust for that split-second delay between hand-eye coordination and the stopping point. Depending on how fast you are fast forwarding or rewinding, your DVR will add or subtract a tad of time to auto-correct to what it determines is the logical spot to resume playback.

Important: All new DVR features require Comcast Digital Cable with DVR service.

DVR Folders

Folders make it easy to see and manage programs on your DVR. And they're automatically created when you record more than one episode of a series. Like "Friends?" Simply go to the "Friends" folder to see all the episodes that you've recorded on one page of the Guide.

Ever have your DVR re-record a program after you've watched and deleted it? With DVR History, your DVR will remember what you've already watched and avoid re-recording. You'll also see the date a program was deleted or why it didn't record.
