Comment (by James Linder <jam@…>):

 OK this is definitely a gnome-screensaver issue and NOT mythtv.

 gnome-screensaver-command --poke
 seems to work ONLY when the screensaver is active and does nothing on an
 inactive screensaver.

 I'll check more to make certain but repeated sleep && gnome-screensaver-
 command --poke yields:

 screen on


 screen off

 next poke turns screen back on


 screen off
