Default Sprint TV and Screen Lock

Please Login to Remove!

Quick question

When I have Sprint TV running my screen lock kicks in after 5 minutes. Other than disabling my Screen Lock is there any other way to watch TV without having to disable my Screen Lock. I did not see any options in the TV menu.

The BlackBerry is known for it's security. It is designed to lock after the set limit of inactivity. You could roll the trackball every few minutes to reset the lock timer. You could change the timeout to 30 minutes or an hour while watching TV. Remember to change it back if you wish.

Those are the only options that I am aware of.

Thanks JS. That's what I thought. It's just weird that Slacker can run while the system is locked.
