Spectrum DVR Fast Forward Not Working

1. Restore your batteries

One possible reason can be the batteries in your remote are out of charge, which is in return affecting remote functionality. So if this is the issue we recommend users recharge the batteries. If your batteries are not rechargeable then users are advised to replace them with new ones.

2. Try by changing the Broadcast type

If the problem is not resolved by restoring batteries then the problem can be with the video you are currently watching. Since Spectrum offers a fast-forward option for videos that are pre-recorded but if you are watching a video, that is a live broadcast then you cannot fast-forward it. By changing the broadcast of your receiver, try fast-forward option once again. If it still does not work our next solution may help you.

3. Reset your Receiver

A good way to identify the issue is by hard resetting the receiver. This reset will discharge any remaining electricity from your receiver, which in return will resolve any power fluctuation issue. To do hard resetting of a receiver following steps should be taken:

  • After your receiver has shut down unplug its power adapter from the source.
  • Now wait for another five minutes and re-attach the power adapter.
  • Once you have re-attached your adapter you can turn on your Spectrum receiver.

4. Interference

Another possible reason can be interference. Many things usually cause interference. Some of them can be large physical objects or RF transmitters near your remote. You can follow the following steps to make sure nothing is interfering with your remote signals:

  • Aim your receiver directly towards your receiver.
  • Remove any physical object that might be obstructing your signal.
  • Relocate your receiver in such a place from where it is accessible from various angles.
