Would it be possible to add "Tivo" like features to xine?
Like "Pause live TV".
I assume it would involve some type of stream caching.
Nothing in this world is exactly what it appears to be.

In essence I don't see why not - just add a pause/resume command
to the input plugin.
For streams that would have to open a file and write the stream to it.
On resume you continue to read from the file.
The tricky part is what to do with new input data once you have
resumed play. You could continue to add it at the end (whilst reading
from the beginning) but then the file will grow at the rate
of the input which might be problematic.
