Is there a show you’d like to record every time it’s on? This article provides instructions for setting up an automatic PVR recording triggered by the title of a TV program.

Configuring your recording settings

You’ll find this guide useful if you’re unable to set up a series recording for the program, if the program is recurring but doesn’t appear in the Interactive Guide as a series, or you are unable to find the program in your guide. Setting up a title-triggered recording is easy with your Motorola or Pace PVR:

  1. Press MENU on your Shaw Remote.
  2. Select Search.
  3. Select Keyword.
  4. Enter the title, keyword, or partial keyword for the TV program.
  5. Press the RIGHT arrow button until Search Now is highlighted
  6. Press OK to display a list of search results.
  7. Select Auto-Record (bottom-left)
  8. Press OK.
  9. Configure settings, then select Auto-record results with these settings.
  10. Repeat these steps for each program you want to record automatically.

Programs that match your title criteria will appear in the Interactive Guide marked with a magnifying glass icon and a red dot, indicating that they are scheduled to be recorded.
