Ok can someone tell me how to pause/rewind live tv
Hello to all, I was a cable customer until 4 years ago when I switched to dish, I have been pleased for the most part. So the other day I'm in SAMs club and the salesman starts the sales pitch for direct. He tells of the higher quality, more sats in orbit, the new rf remotes on the new system, the small size of the new recievers, more channels, yada yada, what he fails to tell me is that while watching live tv I can no longer pause/rewind live tv unless I am watching the tv with the dvr receiver. Don't know about you guys but I use that feature every day, it is an absolute deal breaker for me, I will be forced to switch back to dish. System has been installed about 10 days now, haven't disconnected my dish service yet. I thought that newer equipment would bea good thing but now it seems I've lost functionality for the sake of having hd at all tv's (I have 6). The additional channels, nice remotes, slick little boxes, etc. Don't mean anything to me if I can't pause/rewind live tv, called direct, they told me to hit the record button, wtf, really? This system has got to go, what say you. Dish says their new system will be out soon, wonder if they will go the same way, crazy stuff. Thanks to all
