    I was watching the Bravo channel, paused it. Instead of the usual Directv logo screen saver up popped a Sonic Tap logo. When did that change?

    Were you listening to sonic tap yesterday? It only shows up after you actually tune to a sonic tap channel I think.

    Sonic Tap isn't in my custom guide. I never listen to it.
    It will be interesting to see if this is a way of using the screen saver as a way to advertise channels.

    It is a bug and I have experienced it but only after listening for a while. The last song playing when you tune away gets stuck in the screen saver until you reboot. Do a menu reset and your screensaver will be back to normal, I have no idea how you got that without listening to Sonic Tap

    Even if all you did was inadvertently tune to it (by punching numbers thinking your fingers were on other numbers, for example) what ever song was on at the time will become your screensaver.

    I know I never tuned to ST, but Missy may have by pressing the numbers (the only way to tune to ST channels here).
    A screen saver is a screen saver.. I'll reboot before bed time.
    Thanks for the advice.
    I wonder if this is report worthy or just a brief shoulder shrug.
