Did something change? In the last month, I noticed that if I’m watching a show that’s still recording, I pause and try to resume from another tv, when I select resume instead of resuming to the spot where I paused, it goes to “live”. This really sucks if the program is a sporting event because you see the score. Am I missing something? Is there a workaround?
Hello Mpfischerz. This function is by design to help avoid any issues with the current recording that is still in progress. When pausing on a show or event that is still recording, the default option when joining onto the channel that is being recorded is to join in at Live TV. I can definitely understand the frustration when you join back in only to have the current score spoiled for you. I will be happy to forward your feedback on this feature to our Engineering Team for consideration.
I don't understand why this would be by design. if i pause the recording and hit "resume" why doesn't it actually resume? instead, it behaves as if i selected "watch live" which makes no sense. And why would resuming a show that's being recorded cause an issue w/ the recording? i'm 99% sure this is a somewhat new "feature" which tells me it's a bug. Makes no sense that this would be design. if this is truly by design then get rid of the option to resume if it's not really going to resume. In that case, i'll select the option to watch fromt he start of the recording and FF to where i paused. That's still a pain in the **bleep** but at least th eoption is not misleading.
I hear you and understand where you are coming from. I will be submitting your feedback over to our technical operations team. We're always looking at ways to improve so your feedback is appreciated.
