Unfortunately, if you want it to act differently you'll have to either  
write code to change it yourself or wait until someone else wants it  
to work the same way as you and changes the code accordingly. Changes  
to LiveTV are very low priority for the developers since I don't think  
any of them actually use it.

Do you have a LiveTV jump-point mapped to your remote control? If so,  
you can try hitting Record while watching something and then hit the  
LiveTV button on your remote and that should save you the trouble of  
exiting and re-entering LiveTV. I haven't tried this, but I don't see  
why it wouldn't work.
