Pause TV Shows, Skip Ads and Commercials
While you are watching TV, just press "pause" if you have to answer the phone, doorbell, run to the stove, … etc. When you are ready to resume, just press "play" and the program you were watching continues right from the spot where you had paused it, so you miss nothing. Then when you get to a commercial, just fast-forward it. You can even add an external USB HDD to increase storage space
Record Up to 450 Hours of SD Content or Up to 39 Hours of HD Content
