If it auto-pauses, you'd be happy, but I wouldn't. In the current implementation, you can pause before pressing DOWN. If your way was implemented, I'd have no way NOT to pause before pressing DOWN. So again, you'd be happy, and I wouldn't. DIRECTV's method serves both sets of users, while yours doesn't. Sorry, but DIRECTV made the right call. I agree... reading back on the DLB threads and knowing the history, this was a tremendous undertaking. I'm happy it's here.
