Recording current TV without watching

Hi there

What should I do if I want to record a show which has already started some time ago but without watching it. Pressing a button from the TV Guide takes me directly to live TV (to this show) where I could not find an option "record".

Normally pressing OK on the show being currently aired should give me an option to choose either "watch" or "record" but somehow It is not the case.

Depending on what type of remote you have, I think all you have to do is press the 'Record' button. I have the new hauppauge silver remote, and its the button with the red dot on it. I'm sure if you have a different remote, you can map whatever button you'd like to the Record feature in Sage. Essentially this just sets the selected program in the guide as a Manual Recording.

Hope that helps...

If you don't have a remote button mapped to "Record" you can use the keyboard shortcut for record which is CTRL+Y. If you have a button on your remote mapped for "Info" you can bring up the normal detailed info page with the record option on it. Similiarly the keyboard shortcut for "Info" is Ctrl+I.
