DVR access from a computer

Message 1 of 4

I thought I had heard that you can program your DVR from your computer if you are not home, is this true? If so, how do you do this?

You need to go to FiOS TV CENTRAL and enable remote DVR function.  Requires a Verizon log-in (your email and password).

The only correction to what VZ_Frank said is you dont have to have the HM-DVR, its available to all DVR users.


Error exists between keyboard and chair.
