Why cant we Watch not record a show we pick that is coming on later

We got a new box that records shows. Our old box you could pick a show to watch later so you don't miss it. With the new box it will only start recording instead of just watching it. Can anyone help this old man?

Sounds like you are talking about auto tune, DTV DVRs never had it, if you want it back you have to pay to get an HXX receiver.

No need to "Autotune" when you can set up a recording instead. Then you can view that show whenever you want.
