Quick Look: Most Roku screensavers try to be more than a screensaver. Some try to be useful: Stock Watch displays stock prices and Nowhere Headlines gives you the latest news stories. Others provide entertainment: Picasa Web Albums Screensaver displays your photos and Aquarium Screensaver shows fish on a coral reef. True Screensaver, however, has only one goal: to prevent screen burn-in on your television.
This app does that by displaying constantly changing random shades of various colors, or shades of grey if you prefer. If you use colors, you can set the intensity to low, medium, or high, but that's the extent of options available to you. No local weather, no clock, nothing bouncing or scrolling. If you're a minimalist, this is the screensaver for you.

Developer's Channel Description: A screensaver that fills the screen with random colors or shades of gray. Besides providing a unique visual display, True Screensaver also helps prevent burn-in. With constantly changing random colors or gray shades, all pixels are constantly changing, greatly reducing the risk of burn-in.
NOTE: As with all screensavers, after purchasing this channel it does not automatically activate. You must return to the main Roku screen, go to Settings, select Screensavers, then scroll through installed screensavers and select the one you wish to use. From this screen you can also set custom options and the amount of time your Roku must remain idle before the screensaver comes on.
