A DirecTV receiver with a built-in DVR allows users to search for channels and record them all in one place. There are several recording options, including instructing your DVR to record a program at a later date or having the DVR record your favorite program every time it streams. 

To stop the recording, follow the steps mentioned below:

  1. Select the ‘Guide’ button on the DirecTV remote and highlight the program you are recording.
  1. Press the ‘Record’ button on the remote.
  2. On a high-definition receiver, select ‘Stop Recording’ and then press ‘OK’. The same process is used for standard-definition receivers. In that case, the choices are ‘Don’t Cancel’, ‘Cancel This’, or ‘Cancel All’.
