The screen saver has got to go, or at least an option to disable it, Its getting really old

having to click a button to clear the screen saver, was any of this addressed in this release ?

 

If the developers/programmers are reading this, We need an option, it could go inside

the power save menu.

I don't see them disabling the screen saver or allowing it to be turned off. If it's coming up when it shouldn't, like while something is playing and not paused, that would be different.

How do you expect to clear the screen saver if you don't want it done via button push?

Is a screen saver really needed any longer?

Just eliminate it.

Burn in is not a problem any more on newer Plasma TVs or on LCD or LED TVs.

There are numerous missing AM21 OTA channels from the guide. Repeating initial antenna setup does not restore channels.

Not everyone has a newer TV now this isn't a problem I've experienced not do I have any Plasmas all LCD and LED LCDs.

However I do like the screen to go black and still show me that it is on when I've paused live or recorded television. Vs showing a paused still of what I was watching.

Maybe, but not everyone has one of those.

 

And I'm sure our plasmas at work with burnt in graphics from our monitoring software would more than prove to you that burn it does exist on plasmas.

I agree that plasma tvs had a real problem with burn in, but it has gotten better every year and the plasma monitors or tvs made in the last couple of years no longer have a burn in problem.

I love the screen saver.  A paused image or stationary graphic on my Samsung plasma will cause image retention.  I see the channel banner text very faintly after a Sonic Tap screen saver kicks in for example.  My iPad2 is the same way actually.  After in safari all the time, when I exit out I can see the ovals for the address and search bar faintly on my dark background.  I can even read some text.

 

Screen burn may be an issue for many display devices, especially the millions out in the field already.

The release notes say there are no new features.  However tune to a channel you do not subscribe to.  The screen was redesigned with logos and text explaining how you can call, click or text to order the channel. Its a pretty nice designed screen.

It would be more correct to say that the newer plasmas require a 2-3 day constant image to burn in.  But burn in they will.

 

Image persistence is more of an issue with newer plasma, but it is only a minor annoyance, not a permanent marring of the screen.

Why would you have burn in on LIVE TV, I understand if you hit the PAUSE button, but why in the hell if your watching LIVE TV

does that directv/customerexperience logo pop on? I dont care if its been 4 hours since I hit a button, I am watching LIVE TV.

the picture is changing constantly.  Good example is when I turn the TV on the screen saver logo is there, and you must press

a button to get LIVE TV back. This is just stupid. (DLP Televisions and Projectors do not have the burn in problems anyways)

As others have said, the screensaver should not pop up on live tv.  The screen saver is for when you use pause.

 

If you are seeing the screen saver when you turn on your TV then you most likely have power saving turned on.

Or been watching live tv for hours then the screen saver pops up, but everybody has different varied times that screen saver shows up, BTW I have power saving on and I don't see the screen saver unless I pause the DVR

The screen saver is never supposed to turn on when live TV (or recorded TV) is being watched.  If that is happening there is a problem with your receiver, or more likely the software release has a bug in it that should be reported so it gets fixed.

 

The screen saver is only supposed to come on when you have a video channel paused for a certain length of time (I think it's like 3 minutes), or if you are on one of the screens with static images like the sonic tap channels, or the part time channels that have a DirecTV logo up when there isn't anything being aired.


Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

Received the 0x6bd this morning on my HR20-700, once again like a few weeks ago  it wiped out everything i had set to record this week. If i recall it took betweek 24-48 hours for the Seriers Manger to start adding all the shows back last time.

The update flushed the Guide Data.  This is expected and should take a day or two to fully populate and your To-Do list will populate along with it.
