3 Ways to Pause TV in a Whole Home DVR network.
The HD cable box in a Whole Home DVR network can now pause Live TV. When you press the pause button on the remote for the HD cable box, either: 1) the live TV show pauses, or 2) a request displays for the person watching TV on the DVR to relinquish a tuner to the HD cable box for pausing live TV, or 3) a message displays that the DVR tuners are busy recording programs and cannot assist with the pause-TV request. From the DVR, you can cancel one of the recordings in process, which then allows HD cable box to pause live TV.

New icon called CLIPPED displays when Series Recordings overlap.
