I previously posted this request for help in the General Discussion category:
"I have 3 Tablos which work fine in general. I am using Roku Ultra’s and Roku 3’s for the front end access with the latest software. I have the Roku’s set to use the screensaver after ten minutes, which works fine when I am on the Roku main page. When we watch the recorded news on the Tablo app, however, we sometimes leave the room and the recording finishes and then it is on the “watch, protect, or delete” screen. After 5 minutes or so, the TV goes blank with no indication that it is running. This is on a new Samsung where the red power light is on when the tv is turned off, which is backwards from the old days. We have left the house a few times not knowing the the tv was still turned on.
In contrast, the Sling Tv app on the Roku has the moving Sling icon on the screen when a recorded show ends, so it is obvious that the tv is still turned on. Other apps allow the Roku screensaver to run when there is no input from the user "
I am wondering how much work it would be for you to either add a moving Tablo icon or simply pass control to the Roku screensaver as some other Roku apps do. Then you would know if the tv was on or off when you looked at it. If you had a moving Tablo icon it would also be free advertising for the Tablo brand when the set was running. I believe that Tivo does this.
