Pausing live tv problem

When pausing a live tv show to go to the bathroom come back and push play the next tv show is now playing and cannot rewind to the show that was paused. Anything I can do to fix this? Thank you

Different X1 boxes have different buffer limits that you can see here.  You might swap your box for one that has the 60 minute buffer - or if you already have one, swap it to the TV that you watch most.

The brute-force approach (that I use) is to set series recordings for everything you know you want to see and configure it to only save one or two shows so you don't run out of space.
