Live Viewing

Not sure how to title this one. I've noticed that if I start viewing live tv and pause it for a long enough time that the next program on the schedule ends up getting automatically deleted if it ends before we get back to watching.

So basically I have program A paused but then it continues to record program B and then program C. We come back to watching program A but program B has already ended. When we finish watching program A program C will start playing because B has ended and was deleted. It's like it continues to record live TV as if it expects you to watch it but deletes the intermediate shows after they've ended even though you're technically still watching the channel.

Is there a way to change this behavior to keep the intermediate shows until you've actually hit "stop" or have changed the channel?

I think there is a setting "Delete files when not watching live TV", or something similar. Try that.

I see "Delete Live TV files when not using Intelligent Recording". I don't have Intelligent Recording enabled so this would apply.

The description is "Choose if Live TV recordings are deleted when the show is over."

By that description does it mean if I set it to "No" that live tv viewed programs will never be deleted and I'd have to go back and manually delete them after I've hit stop and am no longer viewing live tv?

Yes. But I believe they will be automatically deleted if you run out of disk space.

This is all very counter intuitive.

No live recorded programs should be deleted while watching live TV.
