    One of my HD DVRs goes into the screen saver mode for no apparent reason. How can I turn this off? I can't find it any where in the menus. THANKS!

    It comes on when paused or while watching live? If its coming on while live, thats wrong.

    I've never had the screen saver come on during tv watching, only when it's paused.

    I know...it does it on both of our receivers....I figured there must have been a software update recently as it just started one day a few weeks ago.

    Yes it does happen because it has happened to me as well, last night to be exact. While watching TV all of a sudden the screen saver pops on. Hitting any key brings the picture back. Obviously this behavior is a bug and needs to be addressed.

    Thats a big issue then. Are you SW 368 or 369?

    Well the problem was gone for awhile. Now it is back with a twist - now while watching a recorded program the receiver turned channels on me. THe remote was 10 foot away form anyone so it was not accidentially hit. Hmmm....
