Your TV Plus box can record two Freeview channels at the same time or you can watch one channel while recording another. To ensure you get the best experience possible, our non-fibre customers are restricted to recording one boost channel at a time. Whereas our fibre customers will be able to record two boost channels at the same time.
All content in the Guide can be recorded, including:

Your TalkTalk TV Plus box can record up to 185 hours of Standard Definition or 60 hours of High Definition TV programmes and films from the Guide. If you have lots of recordings, it's easy to check the remaining space. If you're near the limit, the Automatic Delete feature will help to free up space.
At the bottom of the screen, you'll see a progress bar which displays the percent of free space available.
To help free up space on your TalkTalk TV Plus box, and ensure scheduled recordings are successful, you can set your Box to automatically delete content. This will start with the oldest recording when it's about to reach it's limit. To make sure a recording doesn't get deleted, lock it in MyTV.
If you want to manually manage your recordings then follow the steps below to turn this feature off:
To protect individual recordings from being deleted, you can lock them.
Once you have recorded a programme or film it will be stored on your box to watch any time.
To make sure there are no disappointments when it comes to playing back your recordings, follow our 4 tips below:
Leave your box on or in standby mode. If you switch it off at the mains or power it down, it won't record
Check your TV aerial cable is firmly connected to your TV box and also plugged in your wall socket
If your programme is likely to overrun, record the programme after it too so you don't miss any coverage
If you're recording boost channels, make sure your internet is on and TV box is connected to your router
