Live TV is always time delayed

Message 1 of 4
(391 Views)

Whenever we turn on the tv or finish watching a DVR recording, the DVR shows the last channel we were watching (normally CNN). This is not a problem. The problem is that it is 6:30p and I’m watching a recorded stream from 5:00p. I need to fast forward to the current time stamp. Every time. It’s really annoying. Can I change this behavior on the DVR?

 

to be clear, what I want is anytime I start watching a live tv channel, I want to see the current state of that live tv channel. Right now I see a 90 minute delayed recording of that live tv channel.

Have you tried resetting the STB?

Is the time on the STB show current?

Have you tried hitting the Fios Button on the remote? That should bring you to the current date/time.

Thanks. It’s kind of disappointing that power cycling the set top box can fix the issue. Rebooting it also alleviated the performance issues I was having.

Set top boxes are just specialized computers.

They can all use a reboot at times to clear them out.
