Recording Your DirecTV Programs from Anywhere

Did you head out to work and forget to set your DVR to record your favorite show? If you have a cell phone or laptop with internet service, you can actually program it using the internet.

The only prerequisite is, however, that you already have to have your DirecTV hooked up and online. DirecTV has instructions for that, if you need them, at the DirecTV website.

Once you are ready to go, you can program your DVR recordings from anywhere you have internet access. Start by going to the website: Login to your DirecTV account, or register if you have not already done so.

Once you are logged in, go to the listings to see all the shows and movies you can access through On-Demand. If you do not want to just browse the entire list, you can select from category headings like kids and family, movies, TV series, or sports.

If, on the other hand, you know you want to watch a program offering from HGTV, for example, just select that channel. It will show you all of the content available from that particular network. Some people find that this process is easier and faster than setting the DVR with the remote, and will use this online feature at home as well.

Once you have decided which show you want to record, click the “Record” button on the right side of the listing. Make sure to select the receiver you want to record it, if you have more than one in your home. Finally, click the “Record to Receiver” button. It will remind you that your DVR needs to be connected to the internet. Hopefully, you have done that, so just select “OK.”

When you are home and ready to watch, check your DVR recordings. As long as you have followed all of these steps and your DVR was indeed connected to the internet, you should have the recording you selected saved to your DVR receiver.
