Mute sound at Pause Timeout.

The biggest issue I have with the pause feature is when it timeouts on the pause is it goes to Live TV with Fully Sound on.  


Can the timeout at least go to a timeout screen for user to confirm and or go to live TV with sound Muted?

My pause lasts a very long time; I would guess that it's more than 10 minutes.  But if I know I'm going to need it longer, such as when I want to answer a phone call, I pause and then turn off the STB.  That avoids that TV coming back on very loud.

It still should not go from mute to blaring tv. It happens to us too and it is really irritating. My husband does a lot of work from home and what we think is just going to be a few minutes turns into longer and then everyone is jumping for the remote to mute the TV again. This needs to be fixed. I think a screen saver is a very good idea or at least have the box remember it is in mute if it is going to go to live TV.
