Direct tv screensaver. Sitting there watching TV and suddenly the screen saver comes on. Simply you need to enable the caller ID on the DirecTV. The best fix I found is to press and hold the exit button on the DIRECTV remote until it switches to standard definition and then press and hold it again until it switches back to HD.
DTV suggests pressing info every hour to hour and a half to prevent it and be able to keep record options. Make sure you have selected the correct TV input source example HDMI 1 HDMI 2. The screen saver is never supposed to kick in while watching live TV or recordings.
This is a strange behavior that has plagued DIRECTV receivers for over ten years. Press Menu on your DIRECTV remote. Watch TV Online On Demand Record a Series and Binge on your favorite TV Shows Original Series.
After that the phone number is flashed on the TV screen. If your device isnt listed enter a DIRECTV remote code. Anyone else on the forum have an answer for our guest.

On the on-screen menu select Parental Favs Setup System Setup Remote or Remote Control Program Remote. I see so many people looking for a way to disable the screen saver. And actually listened to its customers.
Video recorded on September 1 2014. Thats the point of Samsungs Frame TV too. To turn off the power-saving feature select Off.
Dont need nor want the stupid screen saver though I wouldnt care if it worked and didnt come on randomly. Plug the other end of the cable into the HDMI port on your TV. Of course your TV will use more power if its displaying images instead of powered off.
New screensaver being pushed. With the help of technology you can make the experience cool to pick up the phone call while watching the favorite shows. Rather than showing an empty black screen or a garish home screen you can display art or photos instead.
On your Universal remote control press TV Input press Input if you are using a Genie remote to cycle through TV inputs component HDMI etc until you see a picture. Available only in the US. Most likely either you or a pet slept on the DIRECTV remote control and activated the screensaver.

Plug one end of the cable into the HDMI port on the back of your receiver. However this turned out to be more like a wallpaper because it didnt.
The screensaver had a clock in the lower right corner and a caption mentioning the location of the photo. I really wish directv read these forums. I may be wrong since its been years since I had DirecTV.
The motel I was staying at had this screensaver on their TV channel lineup found on channel 15. Select the device DVDBlu-ray player DVR gaming console soundbar TV etc that you want the remote to control. Screen Saver is different Than Power Saver This does not disable screen saver.
Stream Shows Online now with DIRECTV. The screen saver is only supposed to kick in when you leave something paused for longer than like 5-10 minutes or when you are on the music channels or part time channels that go to the DirecTV logo screen after their programming ends. Its come and go and it seems like were hearing more and more about it in the last two months.
Your TV is not just for watching. It doesnt affect everyone and its hard to know whats really causing it. All you need to get that iPhone cable with the receiver or get the subscription of the caller ID service.
Take it with you. This is the most ignorant feature for a playingmoving picture. Turn your TV and receiver off and back on.
If nothing happens when you press the button try programming your DIRECTV remote to control your TV Input and try again. The other day I paused live TV and instead of the bouncing logo screensaver an image came up some oceanside California landscape shot. Click the MENU button on your remote select Settings and then select Power Saving.
