Idle after 4 hours - NOT ACCEPTABLE - Uverse is Not Pet Friendly
We were so excited to get Uverse TV and now will likely be switching to a different cable tv company. I received confirmation yesterday from ATT tech support, that the blue screen will appear after 4 hours of the tv being idle. As a dog owner - we always leave the tv on for our dog - it helps her to be alone. I know many other pet owners who do the same thing. ATT informed me that this is a factory setting which cannot be changed. We are very disappointed.

Easiest solution to the pet problem is a DVD. Especially for cats, you can get all kinds of chirping birds and squirrels that go on for hours and then starts over.
The timer is definitely NOT 8 hours every time, it is somewhat random in my house. Sometimes, although not often, it goes to the "OK" screen after 1 hour, most of the time over 4 hours and sometimes not at all. It might have something to do with the downloaded guide schedule - who knows...
