I have read the manual.  I understand how vdr works.

I don't like finding 4 instant recordings going, using up disk space and
10 old instant recordings that no one actually wanted.

IMHO: it is too easy to 'accidentally' bump the pause key.  I have done
it, my wife has done and my kids do it.  I could re-read the manual but
my opinion won't change.  :)
