Pausing Genie

I know you can pause a live TV program for 90 mins max. How long do you have to wait before you hit play but may need to pause again as I tried pausing again about a second later due to an interruption and the pause did not hold. Would appreciate some feedback.

At that point, your best bet is recording the program and watching it later with no limit to how long you can keep it on pause.

When the buffer is full it will start playing the program from the paused point and you can't pause the program again unless you FF the program and lose that part that was FF.

If you're going to need to pause that long, just press the REC button and record that show. Then you can resume at any time in the future.
