Pace Xi3

I have a big dvr box on my main tv and a deactivated Pace Xi3 box on my second tv. Both are Samsung smart tvs and I watch on my second tv through the xfinity streaming app.  I'm trying to figure out if I need the Pace Xi3 (paying $5 month for the deactivated box) or if it is worth it to pay $10/mo to activate it.  What does it do that the app doesn't?  I have spent hours trying to figure this out - appreciate any help.  I'll mention that I like to switch tvs and finish viewing another place, maybe this is one feature - still testing the way it works.  I don't have voice commands, I get that.  Pausing, skipping commercials, I trying to figure it out.

the xi3 uses a tuner from the DVR to play live TV and for recordings playback. that will allow pausing live TV too. the app is good on any device but you so far can not pause live TV.
