English term or phrase:schedule
Context: Schedule and watch your DVR recordings.
Does 'schedule' mean to select which TV shows the DVR will record, or does it mean to view a list of recorded TV shows so that you can select which recorded TV shows to play?
Upon first look at the sentence, 'schedule and watch a recording' appears to me as a weird combination, and I wondered if it could mean schedule and manage the scheduled recording instead; 'watch' can sometimes mean other things. That was a spontaneous thought that occurred at the time of reading. However, I subsequently realised that I was thinking too much as there's nothing unusual with it: it's just schedule and watch later--what's wrong? :-D Sorry for bringing up such a senseless discussion - lol.
