Hi everybody , sometimes there is something intresting on the screene which you need to look at or read but you don't manage to do so because the image /scene goes away quickly letting place for other scenes or events :-doh!. and because there is no pause/freeze button on the DM500s remote control unit , i wonder if any of you guys has managed to find a way to pause/freeze the image on a DM500s .

If you record the channel you can pause the picture. There may be a screenshot type plugin but off the top of my head I can't think of another way without using a web browser.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

The DM500 has no hard drive, which is a necessary requirement to be able to pause a TV program
