And, yes, I DO have "4 seconds" checked off in the menu! Sometimes it stays on an awfully long time. (Seems to occur most on the music channels.) Out of curiosity, I timed it once and it was 7 - 8 MINUTES before the thing when off! (This really gets annoying when I'm trying to do "double-play" -- the down arrow --, and all I hear is "THUMP-THUMP-THUMP.") So, any way to fix this? Or is this just another of those wonderful bugs?
