Edit Timers

You can set timers to automatically record content, like a particular showing of a movie or all episodes of a TV show.

Hi, I’m Ryan. If you want to change how often your shows record or when you want the recording to begin and end, you can quickly make edits to a recording’s settings on your DISH Hopper.

Here’s how.

Press the DVR button on your remote.

Arrow up to the Timers tab.

Arrow to and select the timer you want to edit.

Select “Edit Timer.”

Apply your desired preferences, such as which episodes you want to record, when you want the recording to begin and end, and more. That’s all there is to it!

Thanks for watching, and I’ll see you next time.

Please select your remote to view remote-specific support steps.
