    I'm seeing a bug on my Elite when watching Live TV. If I am behind the current time and fast-forward up to current time and hit Pause just at the right time, the TiVo will show the progress bar as paused, but live TV will just continue right on playing.

    If I then press Play, it jumps back to the point where it should actually be paused at and plays from there.

    Tonight I had a few minutes so I played with it to see if I could repeat this, and I found that I could do it almost repeatedly using the following steps:

    Go back in time any amount of time.
    Fast-forward and let it go all the way to the end of the live buffer.
    Wait until the progress bar switches to the single green play triangle icon.
    At that instant, press Pause.
    If you get the timing just right, the TiVo will show as paused but continue to play.

    I can do this over and over now. Luckily, I know the simple workaround is to wait just a bit longer before pressing Pause, but it was very annoying the first several times it happened.

    Interesting. I can repeat it. I have a friend at TiVo, I'll point him at this thread.

    It's a dry heat
    I might have another bug. Begin to watch a recorded show, go to live tv, go back to recorded show - resume show not available only full restart of show is available.

    Apologies if reported previously.

    I see this one also. I thought it was me fat-fingering the remote.

    Here's another pause bug... I'm not sure when it started, probably with the introduction of the HDUI, but I just noticed it last night, with 20.2.2. It's specific to the HDUI:

    When I pause a show within about five minutes of the end, and back out of it, initially it appears that the pause point is preserved, but it disappears once I select another program and return later. This is the same interval where, in the SDUI, the pause point is not preserved if you just back out without explicitly pausing, but is preserved if you pause first. (The same interval where the TiVo prompts for automatic deletion.)

    I've verified this on my Elite. Sucks
