28. Can I pause live TV on the ZapperBox? For how long?

The ZapperBox has a built-in buffer that allows you to pause Live TV for up to 5 minutes. If you add extra storage for DVR (see FAQ #22) you can pause live TV for up to 60 minutes even if you are not recording the show that you are watching.

We do not recommend using the 60-minute pause buffer with microSD cards or thumb drives as these do not support high enough lifetime rewrite cycles. Using the 60-minute pasue buffer is recommended for  SSD and HDD drives. See our blog post about rewrite lifetime at this link.
