If you want to keep a channel in the buffer you have to do following:
Activate Keep paused LiveBuffer
Then when you watch a channel and press e.g pause or rewind, and switch
channel, the buffer won't be deleted and you can watch the film,
starting at the momement of the first "zapp", when you switch back zu
that channel.
