I have stated before in threads, including this one,  that I have never had the screen saver to pop up when it was not supposed to.
Well, I have now. I have it on CNBC and the TV is muted, just watching the numbers and the screen flashes.
Went outside to water the roses and trim off the old buds and came back in, sat down and whoops there it is. This took about 3 hours for this to happen.
I pressed the Select button and the picture came back.

If your running a mirrored tv off of a hd reciever and the mirrored tv is on and connected via rca, and your watching tv on the none mirrored tv which is connected via hdmi or component and the res is at or above 720p the ss can be triggered because there is a staic on screen message on the mirrored tv stating something like "press and hold exit to enter sd mode...bla bla bla"
This can also happen if you have a AV tuner connected via RCA cables (including yellow video) then a feed from the av unit to a mirrored tv which is off, becaus the av unit is still pulling the video from the hd reciever and therefore the hd reciever sees an active sd connection, therefore "displays" the message about viewing hd via non hd connection.

This can also happen if one of the tuners does not have signal. But that was already mentioned.

... just my opinion. ..

Happened to me just recently now;

 

On my HR34-700 Genie toward the end of the Miami-San Antonio NBA Championship game. Pressed play and it went away.

 

Hasn't happened on any of my boxes here in a long time (five DVRs here including the Genie), and first time its happened on the Genie. Only one program was recording on it at the time.

 

Have the Genie for over a year now.
