Why is it going from the Pause state to Live TV without my asking?

    It seems unlikely to me that there is a timeout of that sort. It would have to be a pretty long one, and then what would be the point? I regularly pause the TV in the morning before leaving for work, and I pretty much always find it still paused when I turn the TV on in the evening. It's just the next morning that I find it on live TV. I suspect my cable company likes to run frequent EAS tests overnight when they won't disturb many people. Well, other than certain Tivo users.

    That's impossible with only a 30-minute buffer...

    I assume he mean "paused a recorded program" not "paused live TV". After all that's the point of this thread, whether (pre-recorded) programs will stay paused indefinitely or not.

    (And in my experience, and apparently in bvm42's, they do stay paused)
