Select the desired programme and click on the Record button next to the programme details.

Important: Shows that you have scheduled directly on your Horizon Box are not visible in the UPC TV App’s TV Guide. Furthermore, you can only watch, process and delete your planned recordings using the Horizon Box.

The options in the standby power usage settings allow you to adjust the power consumption in standby and the start-up time from standby. You can choose between high, medium and eco.

 

Please note that in “eco” standby mode, your telephone and Internet connection are deactivated. Digital TV is also deactivated in eco mode – unless recordings are scheduled. When recordings are scheduled, the Horizon HD Recorder automatically switches from eco mode to high or medium standby mode so that the recordings can be made. Telephone and Internet remain deactivated in this case, however.
