Your T4•R can record two pro­grammes at the same time as you watch a third chan­nel with live pause. If you try to record more than two pro­grammes at once, the T4•R will alert you and provide options to resolve the clash, includ­ing altern­at­ive broad­casts if available.

To view and man­age your record­ings, sched­uled record­ings and remind­ers, open Record­ings from the Home Screen or press RECS on your T4•R remote. The menu is divided into cat­egor­ies dis­played as tabs across your screen. The Sched­uled cat­egory is always shown, while oth­ers appear when they con­tain record­ings. To get around, use the dir­ec­tion­al pad to nav­ig­ate between cat­egor­ies and recordings.

The main cat­egor­ies are:

  • Sched­uled: Your planned record­ings and reminders.
  • All: A com­plete list of all your recordings.
  • Con­tin­ue: Record­ings or series you’re in the middle of watching.
  • Series: Record­ings that are part of a series.
  • Kept: Record­ings you’ve chosen to keep, that won’t be deleted automatically. 
  • Recently Deleted: Deleted record­ings that can be recovered.

Addi­tion­ally, genres like Movies, Sport and Kids will appear as cat­egor­ies when there are one or more record­ings in that genre.

Record­ings from a series or pro­grammes split into mul­tiple parts are auto­mat­ic­ally organ­ised into folders. To play a record­ing or open a folder, press OK. If you’ve pre­vi­ously star­ted watch­ing, you’ll have the option to resume or restart playback.

Watched Status

The sol­id circle ‘●’ before a record­ing in the list means you haven’t watched it yet. An empty circle o’ means you’ve star­ted but not fin­ished it. When a par­tially watched record­ing is high­lighted, a blue bar indic­ates your progress.

Organising Recordings

Press to show options for organ­ising the high­lighted record­ing or folder.

Change Genre

Record­ings are grouped into cat­egor­ies based on their genre. Chan­ging a recording’s genre lets you cus­tom­ise its place­ment with­in the menu, and this change applies to all epis­odes in a series and parts of a split recording.

Mark as Watched/Unwatched

Manu­ally mark a record­ing or entire folder as watched or unwatched using this option. This can be par­tic­u­larly use­ful when com­bined with the fil­ter­ing options.

Keep/Don’t Keep

When the hard drive is full, the T4•R auto-deletes older record­ings to make space for new ones. Select Keep to pro­tect a record­ing from removal.

Deleting & Recovering Recordings

Press to delete a record­ing or folder. By default, there’s no warn­ing when delet­ing a record­ing, but a warn­ing appears for folders. You can change this in: Set­tings > Record­ing & Play­back. If you acci­dent­ally delete some­thing, you can recov­er it from the Recently Deleted tab for up to 30 days or until space is needed.

Filtering Recordings

Press to show fil­ter options. You can fil­ter record­ings by watched status, as well as the avail­ab­il­ity of Sub­titles, Audio Descrip­tion or Sign Lan­guage. Record­ings, cat­egor­ies and folders that don’t match the fil­ter will be hid­den. Please note that the Sched­uled and Recently Deleted cat­egor­ies can­not be filtered.

Dur­ing record­ing, a white LED on the front of the T4•R will be vis­ible. You can dis­able this in standby by going to: Set­tings > Record­ing & Play­back.


Press to change to the next sort option for your recordings:

  • Most cat­egor­ies are sor­ted New to Old by default, with the new­est record­ings at the top. You can reverse this order or change it to A‑Z for alpha­bet­ic­al sorting.
  • The Sched­uled cat­egory is sor­ted by Upcom­ing, with what’s com­ing up next by default. You can change this to A‑Z for alpha­bet­ic­al sorting.
  • Inside series folders, the order is Old to New by default, with the old­est record­ings at the top. You can reverse this order.
  • The Con­tin­ue cat­egory can’t be sor­ted and always dis­plays your most recently played record­ings at the top.

Your sort choices are remembered for future browsing.

The Scheduled Category

This is where you’ll find all your upcom­ing record­ings and remind­ers, with series epis­odes from the next sev­en days grouped into a folder. Press OK to open a folder or view options for sched­uled items, includ­ing can­cel­ling record­ings or series, adding/​removing remind­ers, resolv­ing clashes and skip­ping epis­odes. To change the genre of a sched­uled record­ing or series, press .

Future epis­odes in a series may clash with oth­er sched­uled record­ings. When a clash occurs, a yel­low warn­ing icon will appear on the Sched­uled tab to alert you. Epis­odes that won’t be recor­ded due to the clash can be iden­ti­fied by the Series Record­ing Clash icon next to them. To resolve a clash, select it and press OK.


To pause or resume play­back, press either or OK. There are mul­tiple ways to con­trol and nav­ig­ate your recordings:

  • Seek­ing: Press or to rewind or fast for­ward, increas­ing the speed with each press. Press the oppos­ite but­ton to decrease the speed.
  • Short Skips: Press to skip back 10 seconds or to skip for­ward 30 seconds. To change the inter­vals, go to: Set­tings > Record­ings & Play­back > Play­back Options.
  • Large Leaps: Hold or to jump in incre­ments of 10% of the recording.
  • Go To Spe­cif­ic Time: Press to open the Go To menu. Use the num­ber but­tons to enter a spe­cif­ic time, or press again to restart playback.

To stop play­back and return to Record­ings, press or EXIT. By default, record­ings in folders will play con­tinu­ously through, but this can be changed by going to: Set­tings > Record­ing & Play­back > Play­back Options.
