No. I just believe that you're missing something in your setup. 1) Menu - 8 - 4 "Updates" This is where you can set the time that the unit does the EPG update. When the system does this update it puts the unit into standby. This update is default "Enabled" at 3am (local time). 2) Menu - 8 - 7 "Inactivity Standby' This is where you can tell the unit to shut off after a selectable number of hours ... or not. You can select 4,5,6,7 or 8 hours or disable. This thread started when L261 was still the current version. L262 is now current. Perhaps the behavior has changed. But I did test my box and it went a good 10 hours without going to screen saver. (Then I decided to watch TV instead of waiting for the receiver to go into screen saver.) I'll test it again tomorrow.
