Normal pause/record/rewind functions are still available, with multiple viewing/recording, disk management, advanced search, and time-based recording features also built-in. A new record from mobile feature is also present, allowing customers to schedule recording via their phone. Like the previous HD DVR offerings, the new 3D ready set-top box is capable of outputting Digital Dolby Plus 7.1 surround sound as well.

Videocon was the first to offer a 3D HD-DVR set-top box, along with their 3D DTH service. While Airtel's launch was not accompanied by news of any 3D content for now, expect it in the near future.
