Recording a program after searching

Ok I need help from my friends out there. I’m new to internet streaming and am using Gemini air. When I use search or on demand and find a show why can’t I record that program for later viewing having it be added to my dvr recordings. Fo example I searched for last Saturdays SNL and found it but there’s no choice to record it, there’s only a watch now or record series. I want to record it now and watch it later. I’m good with recording from the guide but can’t get to record when i search.

thank you

Hi, Richard. We understand how important it is to keep track of our favorite TV shows. Although On Demand feature is a great way to watch movies and TV shows that you may have missed, it's not possible to record them. The reason is that these shows have already been aired by the programmers, and On Demand simply allows you to watch them at your convenience. John, DIRECTV Community Specialist
