Disable Screen Saver - DirecTV

It would be nice if the screen saver feature only functioned when playing a recorded DVR that is paused. There seems to be no good reason to engage the screen saver while watching live TV or listening to a music channel with the TV turned off.

It is annoying when screen saver kicks on during a movie or football game just because there haven't been any remote buttons pushed for 2 hours. DIRECTV please fix this as it has been an issue for many people for as long as I can remember (at least ten years)!

This question, "Disable Screen Saver," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
