What happens when you don't delay is that the picture stutters. If you delay once, skipping forward can only get you to within
about 5 seconds of live, so that problem does not happen.

I can't remember if the problem occurred the first time I paused, or I had paused previously, then got caught up to real time
during the commercials. I'll try to pay attention to this next time it happens.
