Learn how to program and manage your PVR settings including how to access your saved recordings on your TV Player (XG1v3). Acting as the Personal Video Recorder (PVR) of the Ignite TV (formerly known as BlueCurve TV) ecosystem, the TV Player acts as a standalone PVR and as a gateway for portals to communicate with the system. This article provides an overview of the TV Player PVR functionality.
