Actually it was reduced to around 1 second for when coming out of "trick play" (pause, ff, rew, etc. on DVR) but AFAIK is unchanged for other times that the IMG invokes it.
My info banner on my DVR stays on for at least 10 seconds and it takes up a third of the screen. Does anyone know how to change the size and time? Thanks.
If it really bothers you, you can always just hit exit to remove the info screen. I instinctively do that every time I ff, rw, etc to get it off my screen immediately. Its become second nature now.
