[mythtv-users] Black screen(saver?)

The problem is DPMS, the energy saving stuff. Personally, I disabled it 
globally in my x.org config;

Section "ServerFlags"
         Option "NoPM" "true"
         Option "BlankTime" "0"

Your IR control won't wake out of monitor sleep, because X doesn't 
recognise it as a device (i.e. it's controlled by LIRCD rather than an X 
device). I'm attempting to get around this so that I can use Xscreensaver 
to draw pretty pictures when Myth ain't in use; try adding something like 
this to your .lircrc

         remote = myremote
         button = bleep
         prog = irexec
         repeat = 0
         config = xset dpms force suspend
