    I got my X20 late last year and so far have been loving it as a great replacement for my old, dead, Uebo M200. My only problem is that my X20 is hooked up to a Panasonic 55" plasma and the screen saver, although set up, is not working and I'm afraid of burn-in. Are there any tricks to get the screen saver to turn on?

    I join the question. But I didn’t even find a mention of a screensaver in the X20 settings ... I feel sorry for the TV.
    In Dune HD Duo screensaver is configured and works without problems.

    I found the setting by searching ever single menu but can't remember where I found it but it doesn't do anything anyway. My old Uebo M200 had a great screensaver... I miss it.

    I found only the settings for disabling hard drives by the period of inactivity. I do not see a screensaver at all ...
    Answer, it seems, will not: (

    ...use Kodi or ZDMC. Then you have various possibilities for Screensavers.

    You can get along with crutches ...
    Put the software in which there is no need ...
    It's just not clear what prevents the implementation of a screensaver by means of firmware?

    You can activate the screensaver in the advanced options, go to Screen and you will see it, but there is only one option called 'Colors'. After 10 minutes or so, the screen goes black and you have to press the return button in order to deactivate the screensaver.

    It would be very nice a screensaver with the Zidoo logo moving across the screen.

    10 minutes, Karl, the whole 10 minutes !!!
    In my old Dune HD Duo, this option is implemented in this way: the Dune logo moves across the screen. A startup interval screensaver can be set at least 1 minute.
    And with the existing option, users have problems: the player stupidly hangs when launching the screensaver from the advanced settings.

    Android TV OS versions will implicitly use the build-in Google Screensaver which will slideshow gorgeous photos from their database. That is what I call a screensaver.

    There is not much left: remove the future time, add the selection of the launch period, get rid of the player freezing when the screen saver starts.
    Suppose there are photos in Popcorn C-200, only the bf TV screen did not burn out.

    I have the screensaver "colors" enabled in the advanced options but no amount of time seems to be sufficient to launch the screensaver... which is a HUGE problem for plasma TVs!

    In my unit the screen just goes black, even when playing music with Music Player 3.0

    This option should be improve in the next firmware, is very important for OLED and plasma panels.

    This is what this thread is about. Only the manufacturer is not in a hurry or does not want to deal with this issue.
    Although when setting the view to pause the inputs on the TV switch!
    Sorry for the TV matrix ...
