Pausing a Live Program

I just switched from DirecTV to U-verseTV. On DirecTV, I could pause a live program to watch a recorded one, so I could go back to the live broadcast and fast forward through the ads. That doesn't appear possible with U-verseTV since as soon as I start to watch a recorded program, the live broadcast un-pauses.

 

Is there a way to stop this from happening?

Thanks

Alan

Re: Pausing a Live Program

UVerse provides 4 individual STREAMS.  The receiver handles one stream at a time.  If you are not recording a stream, you will lose it. 

 

Someone smarter than I can probably explain it better but what you see happening is what you get.

Re: Pausing a Live Program

The live recording uses a 1-hour buffer.  You can pause but if you change the channel (which includes watching a recording) the buffer is "lost".  In uverse your best bet is just to hit the record button while watching that channel.  Then you can get back to it later.
