Power saver does not work. Settings/Display/preferences/Banner Time - only gives you options for seconds to choose, not to turn screen saver off. I have looked there is no way to turn this irritating screensaver OFF.
I have customers that their houses were wired years ago before HDMI. Some are component and others are composite while others are a modulated signal on channels we created.
First they took away the ability to watch HD 1080i at local tv while watching a remote TV (menu and guide give the retarded "Press and hold exit) to change resolution.
Then the stupid screensaver that pops up when you don't do anything for an hour or two. Power saver and scrolling are off.
We built your company and now your F'ing us and our customers by this garbage.
Guess we will start doing FTA and the like.
It costs less and you get so much more.
I knew things would get worse when AT&T hijacked DTV and I was right.
Call their service number. IF you can get someone that you can understand, good luck.
Youre F'ing yourselves by wasting money on DTV
