Help Please from Owners' of Toshiba D-RW-2 DVD Recorder

Can the Toshoba D-RW2 DVD recorder be stopped or paused during a recording, and then continue recording again? I want to be able to record a football game, stop the recording during a commercial, then continue recording again.

If this recorder cannot do that, can someone tell me what to look for in a DVD recorder’s specs that would be descriptive of the ability to do what I’m after?
