Screen Saver kicks in a couple of minutes after starting play

I have had a queer thing happening for a couple of nights now, where I start playing a recorded program, and after the screen saver timeout period the screen saver kicks in. A quick press of the 'OK' button clears the screen saver, and the program plays to the end fine without any more screen saver.

Anybody else seen this?

I did try turning it off for about 15 seconds, which should be enough to discharge anything in there. It does then have to do a full rebbot anyway, so any dat astuctures should get re-initialised.

It didn't make any difference though.

The power supply capacitors in my Foxsat-hdr keep it alive for up to 30 seconds when in low power standby.

Pause a playback or a timeshift or iPlayer (or bring up an untuned channel) for a couple of minutes and you'll get the screen saver (a 6-digit flip-over clock that bounces around a black screen).
