How Do You Record a Show on a Time Warner DVR While You Are Away?

To record a show on a Time Warner digital video recorder while you are away, go to the MyService portal on your iPhone, laptop, Android or any Internet-enabled device. You must have a MyService portal account to use this feature. Log in using your username and password to manage, search, browse and record your show. If you own an iPad, use the iPad app to manage and record your show.

After logging into your account, search for the show you wish to record. The search brings up a list of all the times the show is to air in the next seven days. Selecting the episode you want to record brings up a window with the show's date, time, additional information and runtime. Click on record to bring up an options window where you can manage the settings of your recording.

Choose whether it is a one-time recording or a series. The Save Time option allows you to either specify that the recording should not be deleted, or that it should only be saved until you need the space to record another show. You can also specify the start time and end time of the recording. Click on the Confirm Changes button to set the digital video recorder to automatically record the show.
