Feature Request: Add Record Button to Remote and allow recording of live TV

Please add a record button to the remote, or allow voice command or shortcut button to start recording if I am subscribed to a service with cloud DVR.  I have ATT streaming and their remote and box allows me to do this, so Roku just needs to program the API to the services that allow this.  Streaming can be frustrating because some services like ATT don't allow a true pause if you are not already recording the show.  If I pause, go away 5 minutes and unpause, it goes to live.  That is not a pause, that is essentially a video and audio mute.  If I use my ATT remote and box and push their record button, then I can pause and resume as anyone would expect.  Roku can figure this out if they want.
