Do you actually just pause the program but leave it running in one
room, then start watching it in the other room while the first room is
still paused (ie: you don't exit in the first room?). Admittedly,
everybody's usage pattern is different so it may not be obvious to me,
but it would seem to me the reason you switch rooms while paused is
because somebody else took over the first room while it was paused. In
that case, they probably exited out. You can set myth to set a
bookmark automatically on exit, and that would solve the problem (at
least from the aspect I'm looking at it from).

If you really are talking about leaving it paused in the first room,
even while you are continuing in the second room, how do you then deal
with going back to the first room? Pause it in the second room, go
back to the first room, exit and reenter from the new pause bookmark
(which was modified by the second room)?
