In the past week or so, when I turn my tv and uverse box off and sometimes on using the uverse remote, the box turns off, but my tv is left on with some stup tip about how to change email passwords, etc. It's something new, it's on multiple TV's and it's caused me to accidentaly go off and leave TV's powered on overnight because I didn't notice. It's very annoying, it's stupid and I want it to stop!!!

Since the Blue Screen is also your screen saver, it will appear if you've paused a recorded program for a long(er) period of time.
Scenario: You are watching a recording of Bridezillas and your long-winded sister-in-law calls you. You hit the Pause button HOPING that it'll be a short call but, alas, she rattles on. Before you know it, the blue screen with the "tips" appears. Not to fear, your program will pick up once you get her OFF THE PHONE!*
*...not that this is based on any true experience or anything....

I'm aware of what happens when the tv and box are out of sync and I have to deal with the seperately becuase I had the remote pointed in an odd direction. This is a new problem.

Think of the Blue Screen with Tips as your screensaver now. It'll either appear when your TV/STB is out of sync OR if your recording goes to 'standby'.
Either way, it's there and there's nothing you can do about it or change it. Just ignore it if it annoys you.

So you're telling me that for the past four years I've been aiming my remotes correctly, and that suddently in the past few weeks i'm not. Really?
