Recording paused live TV

Let's say I'm watching a game live, hit pause, then at some point want to record it. It seems if the game is no longer currently on in the schedule, then I can't record it, even if a bunch has been recorded, so I can't save it for later. Is this true? If so lame. Directv never had this problem.

Every company has different features since they have different equipment, you shouldn't expect them to work the same way.

Re: Recording paused live TV

If you hit pause and decide to record, all you need to do is go all the way back to the beginning of the game, hit record then hit live tv on your remote and should save from where you tuned in to end of the game or continue recording if the game is still in progress.

Yeah the problem is the game might still be in progress but the guide info has a new show listed. You can't seem to record the thing you have paused in this instance. Like tonight when I had the football game paused and it was playing 60 minutes behind. I kept hitting record, but it does nothing. I want to record what is save and keep recording on that channel. No way to do that it seems.

I'm not expecting dish to be directv, directv hardware was super buggy. But I can want more useful options. There is no reason dish can't let us have more choices.

If there's a football game being broadcast right this second, but when you press guide it shows "show that is being delayed by football", if you choose to record "show that is being delayed by football", since what is SHOWING is football, then what is recorded will be football.
