A VCR control system using a computer, wherein a list of all programs which were recorded in accordance with an individual program table within a predetermined period of time during a user's absence is displayed once on a display. If a user has no time to play back all the recorded programs in the order of the individual program table after he returns to his home, the order of playback can be specified or changed. This makes it possible for the user to watch the programs within a given period of time in the specified order by rewinding or fast forwarding the VCR according to that order.
