Can’t pause directv

When I am watching a recorded program and I pause the TV it comes back on after 30 seconds, so I cannot pause the TV.


also, when you go to all of your recordings and you’ve already watch something - there’s nothing that says start back to the beginning, etc., there are no options except to delete.

this is not the same great DirecTV that it used to be.

The pause problem is a bug, introduced when directv started to deliver ads when the DVR is paused.

Mayra - you guys ought to know this is a BUG! Rebooting won't fix this permanently..
