Sorry for the probably trivial question.
I'm a newby moving from ATI MMC to MP. I enjoy timeshifting, but I need a much simpler and very useful feature:
Whenever I make a TV recording while I'm actually watching the show, I want to be able to pause recording while there are commercials and resume recording when they are over. Clearly, I need to continue to watch TV in the meanwhile so that I can see when commercials are over.

Is there an easy solution for this?
If I stop recording, I get multiple files in output. I thought about using timeshifting, but it is not really clear to me how it may actually work in the situation I'm describing.

    Hi coribi,

    AFAIK MediaPortal has no way of pausing a recording currently. It would be a nice feature-request, though. ;)

    Kind regards,
