I did try pausing live TV and then going into the guide and that seems
to work - guide is responsive like it should be.  Interestingly, I think
I found a bug - when you switch channels from the guide and then hit
pause again on the new channel it indicates as being 'unpaused' even
though it was no longer paused.  Pausing is possible again after that

So the question is how can I get it to pause automatically if even
