such as pause, instant replay, rewind etc. This is called "trick
play" because these operations can also be performed whilst
watching Live TV.
timebar at the bottom of the screen shows an hour slot in Live
TV, and the duration of the programme when playing back a recording.
Small white markers indicate 15 minute boundries. The green filled
area is the portion of the time shown that TiVo has a recording
of (in Live TV this is a 30 minute rolling buffer, when playing
back a recording the bar should be completely filled unless you
are watching the programme before it has finished recording).
watching Live TV or a recording, you can use the transport controls
on the remote to navigate to different
points in TiVo's recording (the green filled area in the time

(RW): rewinds towards the start of the recording. There are three
rewind speeds - keep pressing the back button to go faster. When
you press play to resume, on the faster speeds TiVo will jump
back slightly to compensate for you overshooting the actual point
that you wanted to stop (since the speed is so fast you would
need to have very fast reactions!).
(FW): fast forwards towards the end of the recording. There are
three fast forward speeds - keep pressing the Fwd button to go
faster. When you press play to resume, on the faster speeds TiVo
will jump back slightly to compensate for you overshooting the
actual point that you wanted to stop (since the speed is so fast
you would need to have very fast reactions!).
pauses playback. In Live TV you can pause
for up to 30 minutes (the length of the buffer). If you need to
pause for more than this then tell TiVo to record
resumes playback. You can also press this to display the time
bar (press the Clear button to remove the time bar or wait a few
seconds for it to disappear).

two extra operations are available: (i) Press the skip to end
button whilst at the end to move to the start of the programme.
(ii) Press the skip to end button during fast forward or rewind
to skip to the next 15 minute marker.
