Time Warner Cable Launches Remote DVR Manager in San Diego, Desert Cities

Time Warner Cable said Monday that it has launched its Remote DVR Manager service in its San Diego and Desert Cities markets. According to the company, the service allows customers to schedule and manage recordings remotely from any Internet-connected computer or browser-enabled mobile device. Customers will be able to schedule and modify both single and series recordings, the MSO says, all with real-time conflict resolution.

In order to use the service--which is offered at no extra charge to Time Warner Cable Digital Basic customers--customers must first register on the MSO's MyServices page (http://myservices.timewarnercable.com). Key features of the service, according to Time Warner Cable, include the ability to:

  • Search for programming by title, actor, keyword, genre or channel rating.
  • Use all recording options available.
  • View scheduled recordings.
  • Access real-time record confirmation.
  • Cancel or modify a scheduled recording.
  • Rename DVR's (e.g., "Family Room," "Bedroom"), so that they can be easily identified when they are being accessed remotely.
