What do most people do during their free time? Different people can give different answers to this question. However, one answer that we would obviously get from many people, is watching movies. We know movies have been a source of entertainment for many people. Most people visit cinema halls to watch movies during weekends. Probably this is one of the many activities that people do along with their families. Today, a lot of people have a high definition TV at home. They spend time watching movies over television. The service providers also offer a lot of channels to watch movies. People watch movies not only over the internet, but also online. Hence, we can watch many movies over the internet as well.
Most service providers offer Bundles, through which we get TV, internet and Phone services. Along, with these services most of them also offer a DVR for Free. A digital video recorder has a many interesting features which help us in various ways when connected to TV, phone and internet as well. Due to these reasons many people prefer to have digital video recorders at home. While most people procure a DVR, it is quite useful, if we know how it actually works.
As we all know DVR is expanded as Digital Video Recorder. Its functions are quite similar to that of a VCR. While we used to use a Video Tape to record movies, DVR works with the help of a hard disk recorder (HDR).
•So why do we need a DVR at the first place?
With the help of a DVR we can record movies favorite shows from our TV to a hard disk. We can also record real time, and we can rewind or pause while watching a program or a movie. Apart from watching these, DVP’s have networking capabilities. We can transfer pictures and some can be connected to the receivers as well.
It is quite easy to use a DVR. The cable or the satellite whichever we receive can be hooked to the DVR. We can also watch additional entertainment programs if we have a VCR or a receiver connected to the net work. However, a DVR is mainly used for recording programs and movies from your television. They have a good storage space to save as many movies we want. Even the quality of sound and picture are much clearer that a VCR.
As mentioned above, we know DVR’s work real time. This helps us to rewind, pause, forward and record any programs. Most of these programs can be search through topics or channel lists connected by cable or satellite connections. An interesting feature which includes all these is that, we don’t have to sit and wait for our favorite channels or movies or programs. The DVR can also be connected to our internet and smart phone. All we need to know is check the timing of the program, going through our channel lists. We can set reminders and record from wherever we are, at any time. Once we are back home we can select and start watching what we want. Likewise there are many other features that help us to view as well. One point I would like to stress at this point of time, when we are talking about recording programs. The recording facility does not limit itself to recording a program on a particular day. However, you can record a series as well. Say you like to watch complete series of a particular show or programs. All you need to do is search and record the whole series at one shot. Hence you can utilize a DVR in many such ways.
