You can't.  By definition it is 'live' and therefore the bit you missed has already been broadcast.  You should be able to start a recording though although that might depend upon the backend you are using.  Some backends (TVHeadend for instance) can be set up to start timeshifting as soon as you play a channel.  If I was watching a channel and had to answer the door, I can rewind as far as the point at which I started the channel.  That's about the best you will get without a bunch of multiplexed tuners recording all your channels 24/7.

i read online that you can recording the live tv using add on call iptv recorder. i down load it and did all the steps that i saw online but i didn't succeed to record (the epg is recognized the broadcast, it said it begin to record and than give a an error message and don't record anything)
do you know that add on or any other add on that can record live tv

thank you in advance

I'm sorry, I don't use IPTV at all.  All my live TV comes over-the-air by both aerial & satellite.  If you have an issue with the addon (assuming it's the one referenced on this forum) then you should open an issue here -> https://github.com/primaeval/plugin.vide...der/issues so that the author can look into it.

There are some IPTV providers that have a feature called Archive that treats live tv like VOD.  I have yet to find a legal source for such content so don't have more information than this.

Yes, the Archive/Catchup feature will be supported in an upcoming IPTV Simple release.
