[mythtv-users] Myth Blanking screen when inactive

If I walk away from an inactive Myth box (MythDora 3.2), the next time I
turn it on, the TV's screen is black until I hit a key. It never goes
blank when it's outputing.

I have disabled screen savers everywhere in settings and preferences. It
still blanks.

If I open an xterm and run "xset s noblank" as root, it seems to fix this.
My problem is I don't know how to automate this. It has no effect as the
last line of startx and, of course, is useless in rc.local.

The xorg.conf has:

Section "ServerFlags"
    Option         "blanktime" "0"

TIA for any insight.
