Mods please move where appropriate, I probably jumped the gun on creating a thread on it's own.
I think there are three concepts, I'm not sure which should be considered really.
"Remember when the LIVE BUFFER is PAUSED, when hitting PREV to toggle between LIVE TV and recording PLAYBACK."
"Automatically PAUSE when hitting PREV to toggle between LIVE TV and recording PLAYBACK."
"Allow PREV to toggle between two recording PLAYBACK shows, PAUSING automatically."
The last two could be affect the way people are using PREV now if they like the fact that it doesn't pause automatically on the live buffer.
I'd vote THUMBS UP for the first suggestion, but THUMBS DOWN for the second, because the second method could lead to a condition that I may not expect or desire. E.g., there are times I would not want the LIVE BUFFER to pause when switching to a recording, like when I knew the LIVE BUFFER was entering a long commercial block or half-time, e.g.
As you point out in a later post, the third scenario is probably not do-able under the current HR20 architecture. There is no 'dual recording playback' logic present to manage this. If there was, we might already have DLBs. I could be wrong about this, tho.
I think the first suggestion is one that could work for everyone, and it should achieve exactly what you're looking for, with only one extra click of PAUSE needed to achieve it. /steve
