If you don't want VDR to "record" when pause is pressed, how do you
expect to resume play from the point at which you pressed pause?
Obviously it has to "record" the stream somewhere since there is no
live tv caching in VDR.  Next, you _do_ have the option to delete
these pause/instant recordings, you just go into the recording menu
and do it.  VDR doesn't just assume you'd like to discard it, as it
shouldn't.

This is one of those things where people will complain either way.
Users who want pause-recordings deleted automatically complain that
they're not.  Users who want to manage this themselves will complain
if they are.  Maybe there's some middle ground where the user can
choose which behavior he prefers, and takes minimal effort to
implement.  After talking to some users about this subject, it seems
most would actually prefer live tv caching as an option.
