Multi Room DVR - Pause Live TV?

Message 1 of 3 (5,734 Views)

Hi all,


Thinking of switching to Multi Room DVR service, and I haven't been able to figure out if pausing/ff/rew live TV still works on the satellite boxes.  Right now, I have 2 HD DVRs and one SD Box.  For Multi Room, I would have to upgrade one of the HD DVRs to MR DVR, and downgrade the other HD DVR to just HD box, correct?  Would I lose the ability to pause/ff/rew live tv on the downgraded box, or does that work throught MR DVR functionality?  Let me know, thanks.

EDIT***Sorry reread your post and you wanted to know about live TV not recordings.  No the only STB capable of pausing/rewinding live TV is the DVR itself.  MRDVR is strictly for the playback of pre-recorded shows from the DVR on the satellite boxes.

You can not pause live tv with a non DVR box even with multi room.
