    It might be the temperature at the photo location?

    My ZIP code is correct. And I doubt that they’re the temps for the locations in the photos. I’m sure it’s warmer than 52 in the middle of the afternoon in Hawaii.

    What I like is the cloud icon disappears before the next picture is displayed

    Left screen saver on for 30 minutes on my Plasma TV, had very light burn in of logo, cloud, temperature and description of scene on the left side. Turned off TV for 15 minutes and when turned on the burn in was gone.
    A longer period of time might cause permanent burn in, would not leave this on OLED TV's.
    Time and temperature accurate for my location.
    Nice photos.
    DIRECTV must be nuts to think this is a screen saver!!!!

    Really? I thought it was a display bug (and an annoying one at that).

    As for the temperature, it seemed to be correct here. Maybe you need to set the location in the weather app. Or maybe it is wrong for everyone, but just a coincidence it was right for here.

    Strangely, the temperature setting seems to have been removed from the screensavers, at least it is no longer showing for me right now. Just the time and the DTV logo are showing.

    Used to be a screen saver - now just slides with High Luma chyron and no incorrect temps

    Not removed here, but now displaying in the wrong place (upper left) and also messing up the pictures.

    Edit: a reboot fixed the display, but the weather part is indeed gone. just the time and logo remain. From the other posts I was thinking they had removed it all because of the static image issue, but I guess not.

    I suspect we are the live beta testers as they tweak settings.

    I'd guess that they removed the temperature because it was wrong.

    I like the new screen saver.

    But they need to have the time and logo move occasionally to prevent burn in.

    The photos are fine, but as an OLED owner, I'm not happy with the static text. Some settings to control the screen saver would be appreciated.

    I didn't see if anyone else had called to find out about this phenomenon, but I called and talked to tech support about the new "screen saver" (I called it a screen destroyer); I asked from whence it came and how someone like me with more than one expensive TV could get rid of it. The initial rep knew virtually nothing other than to bump me to a "supervisor", who basically told me "tough", when he told me that nothing could be done about it. When I persisted and told him that as a nearly 20 year customer, I wasn't about to accept that there was nothing to be done. He then told me that on the Directv web site there is a link to the Directv VP of customer relations (or word to that effect). I asked him for directions and he asked me to go to Directv.com and at the bottom of the page there is a link called "investor relations". I was skeptical but humored him. I clicked on it and got "access denied". He seemed surprised, and said that had never happened to anyone that he had referred to that link. I said "It has now" and asked for an alternative way to submit such a request. He indicated that he didn't know of any. Before blowing my stack, I asked what form of communication this link provided, and he said that the customer provides their email and complaint and that they would be contacted via email or phone call. I then asked him, since could access the link and I couldn't, if he would submit the request on my behalf since he knew my name, email and complaint. He agreed to do so. He indicated that I should receive a response within 24 hours. We'll see; I have his name.

    That link used to be the best way to get answers and results. Old DIRECTV. Ellen's office.

    The temperature is no longer shown.
    And is the Deathstar logo and DirecTV really needed?

    I’ve got a high-end OLED. When I’m going to be on pause for a while, I turn everything off. This is a very inconvenient workaround and a royal pain in the ass. Seems like AT&T is gradually pulling its support for DVRs in preparation for streaming, and doesn’t care very much about customers.
