2 hours is too long! When I pause the tv for up to 45 minutes I would like the screen to either go black or a screen saver. My tv now has burned in images because I frequently pause the tv. Prior to Dish I had Uverse which was amazing, wish I never left.
Screen burn-in?! I haven't seen that issue on TVs for quite some time. Are you using a tube type TV? My 55" is 7-8 years old. My 42" is about eleven. Neither have burn in and I'll pause stuff and not come back for an hour or more.
If your TV is susceptible to burn-in, when you press the pause button and you think you might be away for more than a few minutes, just press the "TV" power button as well.
