Millions of plasma and LCD high-definition TVs are sold each year. We all know that there are still problems with burn-in, even though the manufacturers would like us to think otherwise.
I used to have Comcast, and was able to pause while watching live TV or something on DVR, and after a minute a screen saver would come on. This was extremely useful and convenient if the phone rang, for example. I could hit pause, take the call, and even if I talked for 10 minutes, I wouldn't worry about a static image burning into my screen, because the screen saver would come on.
Now that I'm using FIOS, I'm stunned that they don't have a screen saver option for these circumstances. Every DVD player I own has one, and other cable providers also have them.
Verizon - Please add a screen saver to your menu options so that the millions of HDTV owners can hit pause, and not worry about ruining their TV screen because of burn-in.
Also, fellow Verizon customers: Please take a second to vote on this idea so that Verizon sees how many people want it.
