is there a workaround for time-shifting live TV?
i know you could hit record for one program, but if you wanted to time shift the entire evenings schedule for that channel, can you do it?
we used to do this most nights with the old sky+box - we have a baby!
yes, I mean time shifting.
It's the time shifting function that has the problem I described in the opening post (e.g. you just hit pause and then play again 5 mins later).
So although it has 2 hour buffer, it just chucks you out to live broadcast before you've finished watching it.
It's such a big flaw that I don't whether I have a faulty box or most people don't time shift so aren't that bothered about it.
Just wanted to update this thread in case anyone had similar complaints.
It turns out my T2 was not working properly. Not sure what corrected it. I did resets, hard re-boots and of course the recent software update.
Live pause now works.
I must admit I couldn't understand why the forums weren't littered with live pause complaints and a huge return rate on these boxes.
