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?

English translation:Select the TV shows to be recorded
Explanation:
The verb "to schedule" means to plan ahead, to place events on a timetable or calendar. You might say, "I scheduled my DVR to record NCIS every Tuesday evening."

The asker's two options actually cover the two verbs in the text.

Schedule = "select which TV shows the DVR will record."
Watch = "view a list of recorded TV shows so that you can select which recorded TV shows to play."
