You can choose to detect commercials for LiveTV recordings. It's off  
by default for obvious reasons. I believe it's in the recording  
profiles, but I'm a litte fuzzy on where exactly. It's been a while.  
You also have to make sure  you have it set to start commercial  
flagging while recording.

However, what you really want to do is hit record instead of pause.  
This way it will treat it like any other recording and you can go  
back to it whenever you wish.
