Football fan needs directv box with no 5 second rewind

Do you ever record football games to watch them later?  When you fast forward to get past the huddles and replays, etc., an then hit play, the recording moves back 5 seconds.  So I still get 5 seconds of guys getting into position, when all I want to see is the snap.  How can I either 1) program my box to get rid of this automatic 5-second rollback, or 2) get a box that doesn't do that. 

I had an old box with no 5-second rewind, presumably a manufacturing error, but it burned out.

Any ideas?  Thanks.

You can’t do either. As long as you use the fast forward buttons, you’ll get that rewind when you hit play. What you can do is use 30 second skip, that generally moves you right to the next play.
