Is it possible to use Live TV Pause with a 16GB USB drive without a Roku TV? I have a Samsung UHD

Jump to solution

I see that Samsung is not a brand on the Roku TV list, so I'm wondering if I should even bother trying to set up the Live TV Pause feature on my Roku Premiere device.

I bought the 2.0 USB 16 GB flash drive that the Roku TV instructions say you need to pause live TV.

I'm really bummed that I can't pause sports.  I didn't realize this before I bought the Roku for my additional Xfinity UHD TV.

Hi, sorry for simply “not getting it” but I’m super confused about being able to pause live tv. I know I need a USB, but where am I supposed to put it? I have two ports on the back of my ROKU- one is for power, the other is for the HDMI. Am I crazy? Thanks in advance for any clarification that can be provided.

Roku tv, is an actual TV, with a screen, that is only roku with live tv feature. A console roku like you have DOES NOT have this feature. Sorry.

I believe Live TV pause only works with a TCL, Insignia, Sharp, Phillips and Hicense sets that are branded as Roku TV's. It works quite well but it's not a DVR by any means. You can pause one channel for up to 90 minutes, then rewind and fast forward as desired.

This is disappointing, but thanks for confirming it's not possible without a RokuTV.
