There are several that cycle through that’s one of them...

    The software design of the receivers does not vary by physical manufacturer. That blame rests solely on AT&T|DIRECTV.

    The complaint was about the UI ... but if you think slight differences in hardware manufacturing affect the UI and want to blame DIRECTV's UI design decisions on what factory cranked out the hardware you have the right to be wrong. After all, this is the Internet ...

    The bouncing logo has returned on my DIRECTV system as well. Testing cycle may be over. If AT&T/DIRECTV chooses to implement this format to replace the bouncing logo my take is those scenic images will be replaced with advertising.

    Correct, but they are all made for DirecTV. I was referring to the older receivers that were made by Sony, RCA, Samsung, Phillips, etc. That you could go to Best Buy, Wal-Mart, etc. and buy off the shelf.

    The Fire TV devices all have static images on their screensavers but the image changes quickly. I have had no issues with them. I don't have the new screensaver but my 44 goes to screensaver 5 minutes after a pause. If the static images change quickly why would that cause more harm than the 5 minute pause?

    I don't understand either. A clarification would be helpful. I don't think I have an issue on my 24s with buffers. They're always on, I think.

    Similar to Amazon's screensavers. Naturally, the ATVs have what I think are the best screensavers I've ever seen.

    While the picture may change, the AT&T logo, "Press OK to watch TV" and time are stationary. Those have the potential to burn-in. See pictures posted by Bell System above.

    I noticed the new screen savers a few days ago on my HR54/C61k setup. Very nice compared to the bouncy D* logo.

    I can no longer invoke the nature screensavers. Seems like a hit or miss thing.

    To answer the question of who leaves a TV on for long periods of time with the screen saver, it happens almost every night on two of my HR-24's. There is still the very old bug on the 24's that kicks on the screensaver when the channel doesn't change and a recording happens on the background tuner. My wife and son both let their TV's run overnight while they sleep and if anything records on either of those DVR's, it will kick on the screensaver.
