      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?

      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
