How to Control Live TV on CharterYour Charter DVR lets you control live TV. Your Charter digital video recorder (DVR) not only lets you record television programs without the use of videotapes, it also lets you control live TV broadcasts including sporting events and movies. The DVR records the live program as it is being broadcast. This automatic recording and control is ideal if you miss a portion of the live program or you want to instantly replay a play in a game. The automatic recording is stored on the DVR for one hour--so you can replay the broadcast over and over for the next hour if you want.
