    Using your remote, scroll to a program that you want to record, then press the red (rec) button

    down on the right side of your remote.

Thanks for your response, but I need to know how to set up the DVR to record a program in advance. I wish Verizon had a manual that I could look at.

Go to the guide.  Find the show you want to record.  Press the red button. DONE.

 

Also, if you go to the on-screen menu and down to HELP there are videos that explain most of the functions of the Verizon boxes (including the DVR).

If a forum member gives an answer you like, give them the Kudos they deserve. If a member gives you the answer to your question, mark the answer as Accepted Solution so others can see the solution to the problem.

I find it easier to do this online.  First you have to enable web access on the DVR --

Menu button/Settings/Remote DVR Access/Web Access

 

Once this is done, you can do lots of things online -- set up favorites, browse TV listings & schedule recordings

 

This page shows the listings --

You can go to support.verizon.com and find a lot of support information.

 

For example, the link below will bring you to specifics about the 7216 STB.

There is a section on how to set up a recording and how to set up a series recording.

The OP asked how to record from his / her remote, hence my original answer.  Didn't want to complicate things for someone who is obviously a newbie and not necessarily a techie Smiley Wink

   I got a manual when they installed our FiOS. Maybe you can request one from your local Verizon FiOS store?

 

   or try printing out this pdf document :
