We have just been watching BBC1 HD and are quite annoyed. We paused the program for as long as we could (15 minutes) and then it started playing automatically which is fine. However, it then decided after a little while that it wanted to jump back to the live timing of the show which meant we missed the time we had paused for and we were not able to rewind it. This is not the first time it has happened. Has anyone else had this issue?
Once you hit the live pause button it will buffer and save the live stream for no more than 30 minutes SD, 15 to 20 minutes HD and after the buffer memory is full it will automatically start playing where there is no way to save it for later.
So the maximum time you have to start watching is no more than 30 minutes once you start the pause button.
Should you change the live channel whilst using the live pause, you will lose the stored programme and will not be able to retrieve it.
I think that's how it works from memory where i don't use live pause much on a regular basis apart from the rare toilet breaks.
If you own a NowTV box or NowTV stick (apart from the old white box) perhaps test it out for yourself.
