Firestick TV Controls

Is there a way to use Pause with Firestick TV and the streaming app for live tv? I can stop a live program, but it doesn't actually pause - pressing Pause/Play again jumps ahead, skipping all the content that should have been recorded.

 

On the X1 set, everything works as expected. My guess is that the Firestick does not have sufficient internal memory for such operations (I had thought it was streaming from the DVR, not directly via WiFi).

you can simulate the x1's action by hitting 'record' then watching the recording while it is in progress.
