Blankman's complaint is not that the banner clears. It's that when a new song comes on the banner does not reappear.

Well, my point is that IF the banner remains on screen for very long, which would mean constant refreshing of song/artist information, then screen burn in is what can happen on RPTVs vulnerable to this. I then related my experience having had it happen to me. It's consistent w/ the reasons SpankWare relates as DirecTV's reason for clearing the banner, i.e.- removing it from the screen. Obviously doing that means no new song/artist info. It also means decreasing screen burn-in. My 3rd gen. RCA receiver used a screensaver, but that would vanish after awhile. Again, in an effort to prevent burn-in.

You seem to want to portray me as clueless, appleye 1, but that's not so. The reason I replied to this thread was because I have personal experience as to what the channel banner on MusicChoice can do to an RPTV and so does DirecTV. The complaint by BlankMan showed me that he had no clue as to why the banner disappears. His TV may not be at risk, but others' are. He painted a broad stroke as to the thread topic and when I actually read his post I found it be to be frivolous. If you want a DirecTV receiver which keeps the info on screen all the time, most S1 & S2 DirecTV receivers can do this.
