Assuming you mean you have to stop the recording manually to watch  
LiveTV. My answer is "no, it wouldn't be nice to resume the recording  
from where it was left off." Even if you find the next recording and  
start it at the exact time you stopped watching it before, you'll have  
2 partial recordings in the Watch Recording list and that's really  
annoying. Secondly, you are trusting the network to start the program  
exactly when they say it's starting both times. You're much better off  
if you cancel the recording and allow it to re-record. The best  
solution is to get enough tuners so you can watch LiveTV whenever you  
want and never think about it again.
