    Default How to turn off DirecTV screen saver?

    Is there a way to turn off the screen saver that pops up after so many minutes? It's so annoying that I have to press a button on the remote to get it to go back to what I was watching.

    I think perhaps disabling power saver will disable the screen saver:

    Click the MENU button on your remote, select Settings, and then select Power Saving. To turn off the power-saving feature, select Off.

    I may be wrong, since its been years since I had DirecTV. Anyone else on the forum have an answer for our guest?

    Angry Screen Saver is different Than Power Saver

    This does not disable screen saver. DTV suggests pressing info every hour to hour and a half to prevent it and be able to keep record options. This is the most ignorant feature for a playing/moving picture. It is not going to burn the Mavs game into my tv screen!! UGH
