Rewind when streaming live

Is there a way to rewind (replay) while steaming live content online?

adding... if you have DVR service at all and are on your home network, hit record and watch the recording (then you can rewind within the recording).

Thanks for your reply. This is an important feature for older people or people with hearing difficulties. Can you explain why this feature isn't implemented? Can you tell me how to esclate this?

this is not not practical since we don't know when we want to rewind.

no. you can start a recording on a live show then watch the recording to have the ability to have rewind and pause. (this works while recording in process when on your home wifi)

This is really really bad you can't rewind live streaming.  For some reason it started 15 minutes in.  So basically I miss a whole bunch of the show and have no way of seeing the beginning.  Not happy.

streaminmg website has no ability to pause live TV. go to your DVR and press record then watch the recording in progress (then you can pause).

Re: Rewind when streaming live

If I am watching live stream on a desktop, how can I access my DVR for recording?

Or, how do I get my DVR on the network as suggested earlier?

It's not much of a DVR if it can't pause, rewind, and skip ahead on live TV.  I've tried your "record it" workaround. You realize that's an unacceptable solution, right? Slow, cumbersome, doesn't start recording right away, doesn't let you start watching again right away? 

 

I'm switching to streaming, and this may be the one feature that drives me into the arms of the competition. I think Youtube TV has this feature. Guess I have to give them a try...
