Switching back to LIVE TV and vice versa in menu

In the menu, when the current channel is on the small preview window on the right corner, switching back to live tv and vice versa is not as seamless as it should be. However, when going back and forth on the guide, it is seamless which makes me wonder if this is a bug. Does the older models exhibit this behavior?

Edit: actually if you go to the guide and press the back key instead of live tv, it won't be seamless. Hmmm...

Yes, The little hiccup occurs in Premiers and Roamios.

Every product, no matter how slick has little glitches/quirks. You can turn off the preview window if it bothers you, or use the app to manage your tivo/fire up recordings, or just completely stay out of the guide and live tv and record everything you want to see via search/wishlists/season passes. Just a few choices off the top of my head

For random example, my Ipad 4 which is supposed to be one of the "slickest" things out there, and which, to me, cost a pretty penny, absolutely sucks since IOS 7 came out. If I fast switch between games, there is like a 40-50% chance it will crash IOS... theres plenty of people complaining about it, but no fix has come out. (or it just logs me out of gamecenter, or the icloud over and over)

Are you pressing Live TV or Zoom?

Using Zoom I don't recall any issues when I switch back to Live TV. Sometimes there's a half-second glitch -- sometimes not. Maybe that's what you're seeing?

I get that half second or so of drop out and it plays fine. Annoying but not deal breaking.

Tried both and same behavior at all times.
