As for the screen saver... You can disable the inactivity timeout, so the receiver doesn't go into standby due to inactivity... Then, look for when your nightly update is scheduled and then set an auto-tune timer to some channel about an hour after that to get it turned back on after the nightly update.

Thanks. Stewart can you explain further. What does the nightly update have to do with the screensaver. Also...I googled and it doesn't appear you can turn off the screensaver. Where do you do that? Thanks.
The screen saver kicks in when the receiver is in standby. The receiver goes into standby either:
1. You turn it "off"
2. The inactivity timer expires
3. The receiver performs the nightly update
You can disable the inactivity timer, but you cannot disable the nightly update. The only away around the screen saver kicking in after the nightly update is to set an auto-tune timer for sometime afterwards (I recommend 1 hr after whenever the nightly update is scheduled to occur).

There is third option: install R5000-HD board.
That wouldn't help him get the programs any faster onto DVD in a format that could be watched by someone else... plus if he has a leased receiver he couldn't do that anyway.
