The basics of recording Foxtel & Austar

Recording Foxtel, Austar or pay tv is easy when you know how. If you have Foxtel IQ, IQ 2, or Mystar your box will record automatically onto the hard drive (in-built). 

Recording on the spot is a matter of choosing a channel and then pressing the record button. To bring up your recordings  press the Planner button. The planner button can also be used to do timer records (set up to record all your shows that you want to record later).  


If you have an older verson of Foxtel you may need a VCR recorder or a Dvd Recorder. The Foxtel can be piggy backed into the back of your dvd recorder to record your foxtel on to a blank disk etc. This is relatively easy, it does mean you cannot watch another foxtel channel at the same time unless your box feature's this ability. 

Recording is great to capture all those shows whilst you are working or busy. Many people record the shows that are on late at night that they do not want to miss so they can view them later. 

One of the good things about having Mystar or Foxtel IQ is that the recording feature, is a dream to work with - extremely easy to use and does it's job well. 

Setting up foxtel to your dvd recorder may be tricky, especially if you want your tv recording to record in the best possible quality. Problems you may face may be:

  • The tv does not have enough connections on the back
  • Your dvd recorder has compicated menus and settings that need setting up prior to recording Foxtel
  • You have the wrong cables to record Foxtel
