How do I return to live TV when rewinding a show?

Using the Spectrum 201 DVR and rewinding a show there is no option to return to live TV without fast forwarding. There should be a "Live" button on the remote. There is not one. There are numerous complaints about this on this forum but Spectrum has ignored them. The old silver remote does have a "Live" button and it will work on the 201 DVR. This is a major flaw in the black backlit remote.

    Hey @JPinTN, unfortunately there is no button that has a return to live function with that remote. I will be happy to forward your feedback about it.

    The button immediately above the OK button is the regular playback reversion button and the button immediately below it is the live TV reversion button on the Spectrum Remote.

    To restate the case more accurately for the record, the nav button doubles as regular playback reversion and the nav button doubles as live TV reversion with the Spectrum Remote even though you get the idea.

    That absolutely does not work with the Spectrum URC1160 backlit remote that is supplied with the 201 DVR. The up arrow simply pauses the program. Also, if you are speaking of the silver remote, it has a "Live" button to instantly return you to live TV.

    William_M: Thank you. That would be great. That is certainly a huge flaw in that remote. While you can return by fast forwarding to live it is certainly an inconvenience.
