I have U-Verse currently, and I'm trying to find a way to cut the cord without sacrificing too much. For non-OTA, I'm trying out PS Vue with Roku Express. For OTA, I'm still researching options.
Presuming I make the move away from the Death Star, I would watch very few shows OTA - mostly live sports that I can't get through Vue. One of the features that my rather slow and ugly Death Star DVR has provided since day one, several years ago - a feature which the lack thereof would be very unfortunate - is the ability to watch/fast-forward/rewind/pause a live TV program while that same program is being recorded. That way, I can let the game record for, say, a half-hour, then be able to start watching it, fast-forwarding through the commercials and talking heads as I come upon them. The lack of this feature is an annoying downside of Vue that I've discovered, incidentally, and it may be a showstopper for other members of my family; apparently, we don't pay so much for Death Star TV that the lack of such a feature in a less expensive alternative wouldn't be a big deal for them.
So, my questions are:
- Does the Dual exhibit this same annoyance?
- If so, what's the timeline (if any) for fixing it?
Thank you for your time.
