Sorry, I should have mentioned, my neighbor HAD the same issue and changing out the the old cable FIXED the issue. R-16 has not done the screen saver problem since. Sorry to upset you.
Puhlease... Zactly how does the R16-300 cabling cause a screensaver to kick in? Or replacing the cable cause it to work correctly. All that equipment cares about cable condition concerns quality of signal issues... I BTW have the same issue with this model and it seems that I read somewhere that inactivity from the remote, ie... not changing channels for an extended period of time will cause the screensaver to kick in. Also of note. I don't believe that I always had this issue with this model. I believe that this was inflicted upon us by one of the software upgrades.
LOL My screensaver was on while I was creating this post. Now the receiver just kicked out of screensaver mode to normal operation on it's own violation. Nobody touched anything. :-|
Upon reflection. It may be possible to restart the screensaver timer without clearing the receive buffer by bringing up the guide and then closing it Dunno... but it sure is a pain in the butt to have to babysit the receiver..
