Pause screen information/dialog box is intrusive (1 Viewer)

Dear Developers, MP is a great application. I would like to request an improvement, when pausing TV recordings (and probably video's as well), a large dialog/info screen pops up on the screen. This shows the timeline etc. However, often the reason to pause the playback is to read some on screen text etc, but the big dialog box is in the way. Would it please be possible to remove the dialog box after a short time period to leave the screen uncluttered. Perhaps a small transparent pause icon could be placed in a corner of the screen just as a reminder. Thank you.
