For example, the 7400 is supposed to be able to play in slow motion. I've had two of these machines and neither does that. When you press the slow motion button it plays in a viewable fast forward.
Forums like this one are probably the best place for CM-7400 tips. There are exceptions, but in my experience the sellers' sites are rarely very good. Unfortunately the amount of help you'll find depends on the number of folks who use both a CM-7400 and a forum like AVSForum. So the more popular the DVR is/was, the more help you can find here.
I don't own a CM-7400 myself so I can only offer general advice. But based on my experience with other DVRs, for slow motion try hitting pause first. Then the slow motion or fast-forward key should give you slow motion. That works with both a CM-7000 Pal and Windows Media Center, so I figure it's worth a try on the CM-7400 too.
