Just to say: I have kids, and this happens to me.  I go in every now and
again and delete all the instant recordings.  Not a big problem, but
annoying.  I once lost something I wanted because an instant recording
filled the disk.  (I should have set the priorities correctly.  I know)

If my remote has a pause key, I want it to work when I am replaying
recordings.  I don't want to remove that "feature".

During live TV, I would prefer that the Pause key != Record.

Perhaps a two step: press pause, and it says "Press OK to pause live
