Another potential cause of this is if you have a multi-switch system, you have only one cable connected to the satellite in ports, and you have the receiver set up in dual tuner mode.  The screen saver will activate for what ever reason if it's trying to read signal on the second tuner and it's not there. 

Not "for whatever reason" but rather because you will have an OSD 771 on tuner 2 until is put back to single tuner.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

My HR21 did this often, especially if it was on a music channel (sound shuts off, sometimes tuner, too).  Now that I'm "migrating" to the HR44 and the 21 is no longer making recordings overnight, seems to be happening much less (if at all anymore).  I could almost count on it every night if there was going to be a recording happening.


It seems that if you're not constantly using the remote the HR "assumes" it can just go ahead and "steal" the active tuner, leaving a screen saver (music channel or no) in its place in order to make the recording.  There's really no excuse for this.  These machines should "stay" however the user leaves them.  I guess it's just too much trouble for the HR to "power-up" its second tuner...
