Still see it daily. Like you said, press any button and it comes back. But why does it come on in the first place? What better screen saver than ever changing content? HR21. At least you no longer loose the buffer. Last time this reared it's ugly head (several years ago) my DVR would dump the buffer.
Give us an option to enable or disable.
Oh, much agreed;
Not trying to trivialize this issue at all, just compared to the past I rarely see it, thus relegated it (so far anyway) to the my "minor annoyance" category.
But yes, there definitely needs to be an option to turn off the screensaver for sure. However, like other good ideas it seems to sort of fall on deaf ears in the decision making process of the code developers at DIRECTV.
A lot of good ideas get through, but then a good number of other seemingly very attainable ones don't for some reason.
Don't know whether its bureaucratic inertia or what that causes this kind of intransigence for a very needed feature like this.
