While watching a regular TV program, (not recorded), on the TV connect to the Anyroom terminal, can I pause the TV program from the Anyroom terminal just as if I were watching the same TV Program on the TV connected to the Anyroom Hub?
Or, to put it another way, can I pause any non-recorded TV program on any of the the Anyroom devices?
Nothing there says you can pause live TV on the remote boxes. I don't have experience with them, but my impression was that only the main DVR had the recording capability, and with it the ability to do things like pausing live TV.
Nope. Can't specifically find anything in the docs that says the Terminal set top box can pause a non-recorded program. Seems all the documentation is focused on recorded stuff. Unfortunately, if the Terminal set top box cannot buffer a non-recorded program to allow pause/rewind/fast-forward, well, I guess that means only one thing-- ditch the Anyroom system and go back to the standard DVR or back to DirectTV. The vids claim that Anyroom DVR "Puts the power of your DVR in any room in your house". Unfortunately, that now appears to be an incomplete statement. I orginally thought the HUB DVR served as a complete broadcast point serving content to the Terminal set-top including non-recorded channels. It's a shame. The concept is great but it missed the mark just a bit. Now, it they had included some storage in the Terminal set-top boxes, (maybe a mini-DVR) so that the user could pause/rewind/fast-forward, then they would have a prettey good system. I though the system was going to eliminated having a full DVR for every TV.
