news and sports should be recordings and not LiveTV.

OK I get that the dev promoted model is to set a recording to record - and if you are there at start time, then don't watch Live, 
watch the recording while it continues to record.  I confirm that works well for me - when the viewing is planned and the recording 
pre-set.  It is a different paradigm that requires significant intellectual "openness" to re-orient ones thinking to.

What I am unclear about is when one more spontaneously watches LiveTV, Pauses, and then Resumes - then LiveTV is arguably no longer 
LiveTV. (Its delayed or recorded TV)  Can someone clarify for me, is "Paused/Resumed 'LiveTV'" still considered LiveTV in the 
context of the liveTV vs watching recorded TV debate?  Is this consideration at all relevant?
