Shows that are recording can not be rewound

You select a show that has been on for a while from the guide and go to that channel. If you are recording that show you can not rewind to the beginning. You have to go to your library and search for that particular show. You can do this on other streaming services and directv satellite without having to go to the library.

There is no rewind on live channels even if that channel is recording. Hopefully that will be a feature added soon. I used to have Mediacom cable and we had 6 tuners with tivo bolt. It's nice to be able to go to other channels and be able to rewind them.

Agreed that it would be nice, but they treat a recording an a live stream as separate. To be able to rewind a live stream from within the live stream itself (on the versions of the app that support it), you need to set a marker by pausing.  After that, you should be able to rewind to that point (or back an hour, whichever is shorter).  Perhaps they will at some point merge the handling of recordings and live streams, or even set an implicit "rewind to" marker at the start of a program.  While AT&T was terrible with regard to adding features, there are some signs that under the new company, things might be better.
