    Have the new THR22 Tivo HD DVR. New problem just appeared today.

    If I pause live TV, I can't get out of pause. I have to change channels to go back to live TV.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    First thing to try is resetting your Tivo (red button behind front panel access card door).

    I have the exact same problem. It only seems to occur with certain channels on one tuner. If I get some time, I will try to document which channels I am having the sticking problem with.

    The next time this happens, try this:

    1) Go up a channel and then down a channel.
    2) Pause
    3) Try to unpause. It should stay stuck.

    4) Go up a channel.
    5) Press Live TV to switch tuners
    6) Manually enter the channel number that was getting stuck and press Enter
    7) Pause
    8) Unpause. It should unpause properly.

    This is the behavior I'm seeing. The pause lockup only seems to happen on certain channels on one of the tuners. Please let me know if this same behavior happens on your unit. It's at least a way to workaround the bug and get proper pause/unpause operation (in my case, at least)
