Hi David,

I happened to be perusing through the .21 (Future) Release Notes
yesterday and saw this:

"Added an optional idle timer to LiveTV. If we haven't received any
remote/keyboard input for X minutes then we show a dialogue asking if
the user is still watching. After 45 seconds without any reponse, we
exit LiveTV. If the user responds, then the timer is reset."
