No, I meant deleting automatically the pause-live-TV "recording".  That
recording is conceptually just a technical implementation issue (and
should not be visible in the recordings list, even, in my opinion).  The
end user needs not care for the object structure of VDR source code, and
the implementation of pause-live-TV is in the same category.

It is easy to distinguish pausing live TV and making a recording as
concepts, as a normal user.
