Watch while recording?

Hey, 

I have a quick question before I set up Live TV. Is it possible to record something at 20:15 for example and start watching it at 20:45 while the recording is still running?

The only limitation will be that you may not be able to seek forward/back (which will be client dependent)

Seeking while recording doesn't work on Samsung or LG clients (they are DirectPlaying).  I expect a client the streams with HLS while recording will support it though

If they are like the other Android clients this is a setting you adjust to allow direct playing of TS files.  Have you turned this off in settings?

Disabled and you can then pause, rw, ff but it comes at a bit slower channel tune/startup

Just look on my Samsung phone, and cannot find the setting. Is this only an option when you are playing a file?

Check Settings->Live TV Settings->Direct Play Live TV

turn that off and try it.

That setting is only in the Android TV app right now.

Sorry I think I missed something earlier as @SamES is of course correct as this wasn't android mobile or ATV being discussed. LG & Samsung TV is different as he pointed out.
Sorry for any misinformation or confusion on this.
