How to Add a Screen Saver to Your Comcast Digital Cable

By Techwalla Contributor

Your computer has a screen saver and so can your cable TV, especially if your home has Comcast digital cable. You can use this feature to protect your screen from the permanent indentations that can otherwise be "burnt" into it when your screen is paused too long.

Things You'll Need

  • Television
  • Cable Access

Step 1

Turn on your television. Click on the "Red Menu" button on the right side of your remote control.

Step 2

Look for the Menu bar at the bottom or top of you television screen, depending on how you have your cable bar set up. The Menu bar on your television should be defaulted to the "Menu" button (highlighted in yellow). Click on this button to be moved to the next screen.

Step 3

Click the "Setup" button.

Step 4

Click on the "Screen Saver Setup" button.

Step 5

Turn the screen saver "On" and choose how many minutes should pass before your screen saver is activated.
