Question Tivo Rookie -Where's the STOP button?

I just got started with Tivo and need help with a few scenarios:

1)I hit instant Replay to see the last goal and commentary(had to go back a few minutes more),but,wans't sure how to get back to "live TV."

I hit the "live Tv/Swap button,thinking that was it,but,that just swapped me to the other tuner!

2)I was watching a You Tube video and wasn't sure how to stop it and get back to live TV.

3)If you watching a recorded program and want to STOP it and go back to LIVE TV,how do you do it?

Thanks

If you press LIVE TV while watching LIVE TV, it will SWAP you to the other tuner. If you want to get back to "Live TV" in the current time, you can simply FAST FORWARD or press the SKIP FORWARD button as many times as necessary to return to REAL TIME LIVE TV.

Press LIVE TV.

Press LIVE TV.


Press LIVE TV to exit a recording and return to LIVE TV.
Actually you don't have to keep pressing the skip button, just hold it down a couple of seconds and it will jump to present time.

It's also not necessary to press Live TV to exit the Youtube app. You can, of course, but the "proper" way is to use the Clear button. I'm still not adept at navigating it and use it seldom, but that works. It doesn't work with Hulu Plus, however, and is supposedly a known bug with that app.

There are a lot of TiVo shortcuts some are detailed here:

http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1709

If you are watching a recorded/recording show and hit the Live TV button, you can go back to the recorded show by hitting the left arrow that is left of the Select button and hit the resume playing menu option.
